How much can I borrow?
If you have at least two years’ accounts you should be able to borrow the same as an employed applicant, so between 4-5x times your income, dependent on the lender and your credit score.
For example, if you earn £30,000 a year, you could expect to borrow £120,000 - £150,000, depending on the lender.
Which lenders are the best for me?
Each lender has a different set of criteria that changes regularly with different regulations and appetites for lending, so it is impossible to give a definitive answer.
Your personal situation will also impact which lender is the best for you, as depending on whether you have one or two or more years’ worth of accounts will often impact which lenders will look at your application.
Some lenders will have flexible criteria, and others not, so it’s important to discuss your application with an expert adviser who has access to a wide panel of lenders.
