I had been considering getting a mortgage for a while, but working in construction, you hear all sorts of horror stories about people requiring 3 years accounts. I searched ‘cis mortgages’ and had a chat with David. Then I sent over my details and next thing you know I had a decision in principle. It took no time at all!
My broker guided me through the whole process, even sorting out my building and contents and life cover. I did see if I could get it cheaper, but I couldn't. I hope many more people get to hear about this service. It has gone above and beyond what I expected
David was extremely helpful from start to finish, getting a mortgage is a stressful thing, and could take weeks even months to do the research yourself. David’s help and knowledge was exceptional, and he made what could have been a stressful experience so easy, we didn't even have to barely think about it, and we got the best deal! On top of being a very friendly, and helpful guy with whatever questions you may have. I can highly recommend David Sharpstone!
We'd like to thank David for all of his help and sound advice when helping us to secure a new mortgage deal. We didn't have the simplest situation with our credit scores not being the best due to historical issues and were therefore anxious about the whole process. We needn't have been! David explained everything to us, every step of the way and ensured we had a plan B in place just in case. Luckily we didn't need it, our new deal completed and we are very happy with our new deal. Thank you David. Highly recommended.
A massive thank you David - From our very first meeting until completion your continued assistance and support in all aspects of our home move was truly appreciated for arranging our mortgage , life insurances and assisting with our solicitor and helping me navigate it all. Thanks again!I Would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends, family and work colleagues - A great service
David really is the most powerful advertisement for his business. The knowledge, support and guidance provided by him surpasses all expectations. Strongly recommend
If you’re reading this as a Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) contractor, then you or your partner are probably struggling to find a mortgage right now. We can help.
Contact us today and one of our mortgage advisers can give you an initial Fee Free, no obligation telephone assessment. During this initial call we will calculate how you may borrow based on your CIS day-rate before tax, instead of using an average of your last two year's self employed income which most banks will ask for. Subject to providing us with evidence of your income and identification we can even obtain an instant provisional lending agreement
If you’ve only been a subcontractor, or self-employed, for less than a year, then our mortgage advisers can even help you get a mortgage without having to complete 2 or 3 years of accounts.
Give us five just minutes of your time, and we can advise you how much you may be able to borrow on a mortgage.
If you complete a self-assessed tax return for HMRC, and pay 20% tax at source through a construction firm, then you are part of the CIS Scheme.
Most CIS contractors do find it difficult to borrow sufficiently on a mortgage, because most banks make their lending decision based on your profit after expenses.
In addition, most banks require more than two years’ evidence of income to make a lending decision, giving a double-whammy to CIS contractors.
Although we can't guarantee you'll get a mortgage, we are proud that we have helped 100's of CIS contractors buy their dream home since 2010.
For our clients, the following circumstances are normal:
As long as you are on the CIS Scheme, and have 3 months’ worth of continuous payments and a good credit record, then we can help you get a mortgage offer based on your average day-rate.
Don’t worry if you’ve even had a few minor credit blips in the past; or have yet to complete your first self-assessed tax return: we can still help!
Since 2010, our CIS mortgage advisers have secured a provision lending decision for the vast majority of all the enquires we received!
And again, almost every mortgage our clients applied for thorugh us subsequently received a binding offer from a High Street lender within 10 working days. (Among those declined, the decision was generally due to either unsuitable or down-valued properties.)
Our friendly mortgage advisors are all experts in the CIS Scheme. They understand that you are neither employed, nor self-employed – but somewhere in between.
We use your average day-rate to calculate exactly how much you can borrow, and only place your CIS mortgage with a High Street bank.
In most circumstances, you can borrow up to 5 times your gross annual salary, and access the same fantastic mortgage rates available to someone who is directly employed.
More than half of our initial client conversations begin with a CIS contractors’ parents or partner. So we don’t expect you to be armed with a spreadsheet of figures on a first call.
Instead, we’re happy to chat about your mortgage aims, learn about your ideal property, and discover the hurdles you have faced so far. All at a time that’s convenient for you.
Our CIS mortgage advisers can then offer an initial fee free, no obligation assessment.
Our team can also ensure that buying your home is as stress-free as possible. Once you have a mortgage lending decision, they will guide you through the entire home-buying process. They can even arrange access to exclusive rates from expert property solicitors via Openwork Conveyancing, as well as Will and Estate planners*.
