Self Employed Home Loans: 3 Months
Getting a home loan when you've been self employed for only 3 months can be extremely difficult. The vast majority of lenders will not accept your application, and even most of the non-traditional lenders won't accept your income until you've been self employed for 12 - 24 months. We get it, it's hard, but we might have a solution for you!
A 3 months self employed home loan is possible!
Let's firstly clear up a couple of things: whilst a 3 month self employed mortgage is possible, it does have stricter eligibility criteria and higher costs. In most cases, you will be looking between 6.79%p.a. interest and 9.74%p.a. interest, with an upfront fee of between 0.75% and 1.25% (as at 17/01/2018). a 20% deposit is always mandatory, and some locations and loan amount may not be possible. But if you do have a 20% deposit + costs handy, let's talk. We will be looking at your business and personal bank account statements for the last 3 months to determine your income, and may also require a letter from your accountant - then we can look at getting you a pre approval or full approval.
Are there other options? It depends on your situation, but options are limited. Our 3 month self employed home loan option is generally used as a stepping stone: it will get you the house you want, and we can then look to refinance you when you have a longer track record of being self employed.

FAQ about our 3 month self employed home loan:
Why is it so difficult to get a home loan when self employed for 3 months?
Lenders like to feel safe about their investment. When you've only been self employed for 3 months you are still high risk. Many new businesses fail in the first 12 months and lenders don't want to be involved if that happens.
Do you charge for your service?
No. The lender pays us a commission for a successful application so you needn't pay us anything.
