Mortgages for Doctors

Medical professionals and doctors can find the mortgage sector challenging, with variable contract structures, different levels of qualification and newly qualified applicants needing to navigate the criteria of mainstream lenders that don't accommodate their working circumstances.

Here we will run through the different types of mortgages for UK doctors and medical personnel, and how to find the best deal for your property purchase.

Whether you are a locum doctor, a junior, or self-employed, there is competitive mortgage lending available. Give the Revolution Brokers team a call to learn more, on 0330 304 3040 or via email at [email protected].

Can I Get a Mortgage as a Newly Qualified Doctor?

Yes, by using a specialist lender, you can apply for a mortgage even if you have just started work, or haven't yet taken up a post.

Provided you are due to start a role within the next six months, then you can apply to a niche mortgage provider, without having to wait until you have been in employment for at least three months.

What is a Locum Mortgage?

Locum doctors and nurses often work flexible and highly variable working patterns. This can apply to professionals working in a dual role, and those with changing shift patterns, gaps in employment, or changing hours.

In this scenario, you can use your average income as a basis to demonstrate mortgage affordability and should contact an experienced broker for support with the application process and negotiating lending terms.

Can I Get a Mortgage as a Trainee Doctor or a Junior Medical Professional?

Many juniors and trainees earn very little, particularly when compared to fully qualified doctors.

However, your trainee status means that you have a viable employment pathway, and so mortgage lenders can agree to lend, based on projected income once you reach the end of your current training route.

How Can I Get a Mortgage as a Doctor on a Temporary Contract?

If you are working on a fixed-term or temporary contract, you might find that a high street lender is unable to accept a mortgage application.

In this situation, a specialist lender is ideal since they can consider applicants provided you have at least two months left to run on the existing contract.

Where the contract has already been renewed before, or you have a reasonable basis for anticipating taking up a new contract when the current one ends, you can negotiate more competitive rates through an experienced UK broker.

Are There Mortgages Available for Self-employed Doctors?

Many professionals in the UK are self-employed, which is common in private healthcare and the dental profession.

In many cases, a mainstream provider will need to see at least two to three years of tax returns or verified accounts.

Specialist lenders are more flexible and can offer lending to self-employed doctors with only one year of income verification.

Another option is to consider a Day One Mortgage. If you are self-employed and do not have a long trading history, contact Revolution Brokers on 0330 304 3040 for further advice.

How Can I Get a Mortgage if I am Newly Self-Employed as a Practice Principal?

Outside of the medical profession, if you are newly self-employed with no income history, it is almost impossible to find a mortgage lender who will accept your application.

However, lenders with experience in the medical sector will be able to help, by anticipating your income based on the history of the practice.
