10. Financial matters - Can I still get a mortgage as a freelancer?
Some traditional lenders require three years of accounts for freelancers before they will even consider giving a mortgage. With such low percentage rates many providers are happy to lend money with a more fitting amount of security and shopping around can provide excellent results.
Independant financial advisors can be a very good source of potential deals and, if familiar with your financial circumstances may hold sway with the provider to help leverage a deal.
Other sources of a good mortgage can be your local bank, as they know your financial situation better than anyone they may accept a mortgage proposal from you where others refuse.
