Mortgage for contractors


Does anybody know if there are difficulties securing a mortgage if you are a contractor ?

Re: Mortgage for contractors

It all depends on your track record, your current contract and length of, the amount of deposit you can put down in cash, not counting pension funds and the such like.

Yoiu can use your pension fund, but you'll also need to prove you can make a liviing suffiicnet to sustain a mortgage and that you have been doing this for some time. Having your accounts done by a fiduciary company also helps.

Re: Mortgage for contractors

I talked to both UBS and ZKB last year about this - neither had any problem - my contract at the time was for only another 4 months.
