Halifax Contractor Mortgages

Halifax bank is one of the most flexible and contractor friendly mortgage lender. They determine your mortgage affordability based on your daily rate.

Banks and Mortgage Lenders were very rigid during the early days of contractor mortgages. Contractors had to prove their mortgage affordability by providing a minimum of one years’ accounts, and the banks then assessed the affordability through salary and dividend drawings.

Halifax entered the contractor mortgage marketplace and made it easier for contractors to secure a mortgage. They started offering contract based underwriting to contractors. This is why, there are seen as one of the most flexible contractor mortgages lenders.
