Fantastic experience from start to finish. Our mortgage broker, Kathryn was incredibly professional and thorough during the entire process. She managed to secure us an almost unheard of deal with a top bank in the middle of a global pandemic.

I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team! Having heard the numerous horror stories of contractors trying to obtain a mortgage, the process was completely seamless. We were kept up to date throughout the process and you managed to find a mortgage offer that was exactly what we required. Thank you for the support and I would have no reservations in recommending you to anyone.

Can I say thank you so much for the service I received from yourselves. I’ve been shouting CFM from the rooftops!!!!! I am referring all my friends and colleagues to you.

I wish I knew more contractors looking for mortgages to recommend them and even wish I could move again as the CFM team made applying for a mortgage a very pleasant and easy experience. Excellent work from Kathryn and the team.


Many thanks to Stuart Rhodes and the CFM team! They deserve more than 5 stars for a very easy and non stressful process for getting a mortgage. I strongly recommend contacting Contractor Friendly Mortgages if you have a non-standard situation
They got us a  very good rate after the majority of Banks didn’t find us eligible because of our non-standard situation: 2 years in the UK, 1 year LTD and one active contract in EUROS.

Personal stories

I wish I went straight to Contractor Friendly Mortgages. When the bank turned me away I was worried I’d never be able to own a home, now I can keep doing what I love. I can’t wait to setup my new home office!


Meet James

James has been contracting for 6 months and is ready to purchase a house for his family.

Instead of seeking mortgage advice by coming to a company like us, he goes straight to the bank to see what kind of mortgage he can secure. Before he’s even able to have a look at what mortgages are available to him, the bank asks for at least 2 years of his limited company accounts before they can even look at any sort of mortgage funding. This makes James feel disheartened and stuck, which is the opposite to the feelings you should have when trying to buy your first home!

This is why we love our business: instead of basing his income on 2 years of your company accounts, we use bespoke contractor underwriting which will allow the bank to use the following calculation to work out James’ income. His company accounts show a salary of £10,000 per annum, he also takes a dividends of £30,000 per annum. The bank will then apply their standard income multiple of 4 or 4.5 times the income, meaning the maximum loan James will get is £160,000 – £180,000, which obviously is not enough.

When James came to us, we took his day rate of £400, multiplying that by 5 days a week, then at 48 weeks will give him an income of £96,000. If we then multiply this by 5, he is able to borrow up to £480,000, which is a 300% increase – compared with £160,000!

Your home may be repossessed if you don’t keep up repayments on your mortgage.
