At Independent Mortgage Solutions, we have been providing our clients with friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely independent mortgages advice since 2004. Every lender is different, they all have different criteria, they lend different amounts, they treat income in different ways and they have different rules for certain types of property. We also understand that our clients are individuals with varying requirements and different personal and financial circumstances. We are experts at guiding you through the maze of options and we like to get it right first time. We regularly see people who have been turned down by their own banks or offered insufficient loan amounts yet we are able to help.

There are many different categories of self-employment. At independent mortgage solutions, we know exactly how lenders will assess your income – and they are all different! Whether you are a sole trader, a partner, a company director or a contractor, different lenders will use different elements of your income in different ways.
