Tory Election Win Good for Specialist Contractor Mortgages Market

Tory Election Win and Contractor Market

Tory Election Win Good for Market

Whether, you voted Tory, Labour, Liberal Democrat, SNP, UKIP, Green Party or you voted for no party at all, it can’t be denied that a Tory Election Win is going to be good for the Housing Market.

As that will be the case, a Tory election win will also be good for the Contractor Mortgages Market too.

Firstly, Labour’s Mansion Tax on properties over £2m will not now be implemented.

You may think that this won’t affect contractors too much. However, the price of houses and flats have gone through the roof in London, This is where a large percentage of contractors live and work.

London has become very much an international city and foreign buyers are pushing house prices higher there.

Supply and Demand for Property

Secondly, the Conservatives won’t be going on any public housing building programme that Labour might have done. This would have boosted the supply of houses and flats on the market.

As those who know their economics know there is the Laws of Supply and Demand. This says that if you increase the supply of a commodity then the price will fall.

There are also no plans by the Conservatives to give planning permission for houses on green belt sites or even in brown field sites in major cities.

This will keep the supply of houses down as the population rises. This is mainly based on heavy immigration which is mainly in the London area.

So, in the next few years, the factors will not be in place for a major increase in the supply of housing to the market.

Therefore, as the demand for housing is increasing, the price of housing should increase too as the supply of housing is rising at a slower rate.

Specialist Contractor Mortgages

The Tory election win will have a knock-on effect on the specialist contractor mortgages market.

This has been healthy for some time now. There seems to be no reason to expect that to change in the ear future.

First Time Buyers Property Boom on back of Help to Buy

Property Crowdfunding for Contractors

First Time Buyers Property Boom

A first time buyers property boom has sent the property market soaring. Prior to the Help to Buy scheme being brought in by the Government, contractors were having to stump up 20% to 25% deposits if they wanted to buy a house or apartment. As you can imagine, most first time buyers could not afford that.

Therefore, these high deposits pretty much excluded first time buyers from the market and they are normally the lifeblood of the property market.

Laws of Supply and Demand

If you cut the demand for a commodity then, if the supply stays the same, the price decreases. Equally, according to the economic Laws of Supply and Demand, if you increase the demand for a commodity, and the supply remains the same, then the price goes up.

That is why house prices were previously falling and now they are rising.

With the addition of first time buyers to the market the demand has increased and so the prices have been rising. This has been because of a first time buyers property boom.

House Prices Rising

Recent figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) have shown that house prices rose by 9.% in 2014.

Mortgage lenders have reported that this first time buyers property boom has led to a record level of mortgages sold to first time buyers.

The average house price is now £272,000 – up £22,000 in just a year.

Specialist Contractor Mortgages Market

There’s also a first time buyers property boom in the specialist contractor mortgages market, according to specialist contractor mortgages broker Tony Harris.

He has been getting contractors mortgages for years. You are always better to use a specialist contractor mortgages broker. They can get contractors the best deals.

Top contractor mortgage deals for UK Contractors

Best Contractor Mortgages

Top Contractor Mortgage Deals

Our mortgage partners have negotiated a number of top contractor mortgage deals.

Is it a good time to go for a variable rate?

Many house owners are expecting the interest rates from their variable mortgages to rise within the next year or so which will increase their repayments. So, contractors would be best to take a fixed rate mortgage if they want the top contractor mortgage deals.

Our partners have got credibility in the specialist contractor mortgages market. This is because their contractors have made all their repayments and don’t tend to have to give back the keys.

This is, also, because most of them take fixed rate mortgages and don’t have the worry of repayments rising when interest rates go up. Therefore, it’s as good a time as any for contractors to take fixed rate loans.

Here’s a tip. Recently the difference between 2-year and 5-year fixed rate mortgages has narrowed. So, it would be a good idea for contractors to pay the little extra and fix for 5 years rather than just 2 years.

Specialist Top Contractor Mortgage Deals

Our partners have found a new lender in the specialist contractor mortgages market who have this top contractor mortgage deal:-

– A 2 year fixed rate at 2.29% based on an 85% LTV

Or

Contractor Mortgage Options for UK Contractors

Contractor Mortgage Options now

Contractor Mortgage Options

The Contractor Mortgage options for UK Contractors are twofold.

1.  You can step in to a high street bank and ask for a contractor mortgage or

2.  You can contact a specialist contractor mortgages broker

The first of the contractor mortgage options is what most contractors take – but it is madness.

The second of the two contractor mortgage options is the clever one – but only the contractors in-the-know are able to benefit from it.

High Street Bank mortgages for contractors

If you step into the high street bank, or building society, they will:-

a) Ask to see three years worth of accounts, meaning you will have to have been a contractor for at least 3.5 years

b)  Give you a quote based on your director’s salary. We all know that contractor prefer to keep that as low as possible. They want to take their money out in dividends and so maximise their returns.

You would have got a bigger offer if you had stayed in a permanent role.

Specialist Contractor Mortgage Brokers

So, what about the second of the contractor mortgage options?

That’s the sensible one.

A specialist contractor mortgages broker will:-

a)  Get you a quote on production of your contract without having to show three worth of accounts to get a contractor mortgage

b)  Get you a quote based on your day rate annualised.

Your Contractor Mortgage Quote

So, if you got £500 a day, that would be £2,500 a week.

They would multiply that by 48 to get your annual ‘salary’. That would make your annual salary £120,000 a year.

They would then multiply that by 4 to get your specialist contractor mortgage offer.

So they would offer you a contractor mortgage of £480,000.

As you would have to put down a deposit of a minimum of 5% you are talking about being able to buy a property worth more than half a million pounds.

This is the best of the contractor mortgage options.

Foolish Contractor

Many years ago, I was a foolish contractor. I didn’t know about specialist contractor mortgages brokers in the UK. I simply decided that I would have to wait a few years to get a mortgage for a house or flat. However, it wouldn’t be a great place I could afford if it was only based on my Director’s salary.

So, I continued to waste tens of thousands of pounds by continuing to rent.

Crucial Factors

2.  He can get the quote just on production of the contractor’s contract, rather than the lender having to see 3 years worth of accounts.

The North West will see the slowest house price rises. However, they will still be up by 24%.

95% Specialist Contractor Mortgages now available for all Contractors

Mortgages Now Available

Mortgages Now Available

95% Specialist Contractor Mortgages now available.

For years Tony Harris has been getting specialist contractor mortgages for IT Contractors. This was based on their daily rate rather than their Director’s salary the way a High Street Bank would calculate it.

Also, the contractors wouldn’t have to produce three years worth of accounts like they would have to with a High Street Bank.

He has a deal with a major contractor mortgage provider that uses his credibility with them to get contractors mortgages.

Types of Contractors such as Engineers, Bankers, Oil & Gas Workers, Construction Workers and Media Workers can now benefit from these specialist contractor mortgages now available. They are also available to Freelance Professionals such as Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Accountants and Business Consultants. This is all based on Tony’s credibility with the lenders and the good business he has brough them in the past.

Previously all lenders based their lending on Director’s Pay. That is a lot less than their daily rate, with the exception of IT Contractors who had this deal before.

Contractor Mortgages Deal

So, how do you get one of these mortgages now available?

Firstly you must be earning a daily rate of at least £300 a day or £75,000 a year – and that’s basically it.

It doesn’t matter how long you have been contracting and you don’t have to produce accounts. Even if you are only a day into your first contract you can still apply. Tony tells me that he would expect you to be walking into your new house 4-6 weeks after you apply. He can get a decision in days.

Any contractor in any sector, no matter their experience, can now get 90% mortgages. They can take that to 95% using the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.

Interest Rates

The interest rates for the various loans are as follows:-

o 60% LTV mortgage at 2.29%,

o 75% LTV mortgage at 2.74%

o  85% LTV mortgage at just 3.74%.

There’s a £999 arrangement fee which can just be added to the loan.

Bigger Loan

In terms of the amount offered, this lender will beat the normal 4 times Director’s salary. They will make it 5 times the daily rate annualised.

So, if you are making £400 a day, that would be an annual rate of  £95,000 to £100,000. This would mean that you could get a mortgage offer of £475,000 to £500,000. You would get that just one day into your first ever contract.

Tony has a dedicated underwriter and case handler. This means he can get you a quote and an agreement in principle within hours of you contacting him. It has happened that contractors are in their new home within a week of their initial enquiry.

Pundits are panning the Government saying that they are going to cause a new housing boom due to their new Help to Buy policy. Furthermore, agents are reporting a major upturn in enquiries since Help to Buy was announced. This appears to be the time to buy or contractors may miss the boat.

How to Apply

To make further enquiries about mortgages now available or to ask for a quote based on your rate fill in the form at Specialist Contractor Mortgages and get your enquiry answered or a quote within a couple of hours or even quicker.

Contractor Mortgage Offers – Calculation of your offer

Contractor Mortgage Offers best rates

Contractor Mortgage Offers

Contractor Mortgage offers can vary greatly. Indeed if you went into a high street bank or building society they would base it on your Director’s salary. We all know that wouldn’t lead to great contractor mortgage offers.

They may not even give you an offer as they need three years worth of accounts as well.

If you go to a specialist contractor mortgages broker like Tony Harris, contractor mortgage offers are based on your daily rate annualised. That’s much better, isn’t it?

It’s basically Daily Rate x 5 times 48 times x 4. The last figure would be up to 5 depending on circumstances and how much deposit you put down.

However, a very rough figure would be got at for your contractor mortgage offers by multiplying your hourly rate by £7,200.

Example Offers Based On Rates

Hourly Rate – Offer

£20 – £144,000

£30 – £216,000

£40 – £288,000

£50 – £360,000

£60 – £432,000

Indicative Guide

It has to be said, again, that this is very rough and depends on your circumstances what your contractor mortgage offers are.

However, it is an indicative guide as to what you can get. Through specialist contractor mortgage brokers like Tony, you can get a mortgage offer within hours of the very first day of your very first contract.

There didn’t used to be specialist contractor mortgage brokers when I started contracting and I was ‘blown off’ by building societies and high street banks when I went looking for contractor mortgage offers. The three years of accounts needed were a killer.

Specialist Contractor Mortgages

However, Tony persuaded banks and building societies that there was a lucrative new market for them in loaning money to contractors. They dipped their toes in the water. When the contractors kept up to date with their mortgage payments and didn’t default, it gave Tony lots of credibility with the loaners.

Since then he’s been able to get more and more contractor mortgage offers for more and more contractors. It’s at good rates too.
