        Working as a doctor can be a fulfilling and rewarding career choice but it can make it tricky to plan your finances. As doctors are sometimes employed on variable contracts, your salary and remuneration may change from month to month. If so, ‘traditional’ mortgages may be difficult to find.

        Fortunately, there are other options available. When you take out doctor mortgages, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with a lender who understands your circumstances and work patterns. No matter where you are in your career, there are doctor mortgages to suit you.

        What are Doctor Mortgages?

        Although there isn’t a specific financial product known as a ‘doctor mortgage’, there are mortgage deals which are designed for people working on non-standard contracts. As these are offered by different lenders, you’ll find they are often advertised under varying names or brands.

        To ensure doctor mortgages are available to medical professionals at any point during their career, there are a number of relevant mortgage products on the market. If you’re a junior doctor, for example, you may be able to bypass the usual requirement of having at least three months’ employment history. Furthermore, a mortgage lender may calculate the amount you can borrow based on your future salary, rather than your current remuneration when you take out a doctor mortgage.

        Mortgages for Principal Doctors

        If you’re a principal doctor, you may have only set up your practice recently. For most self-employment people, it can be hard to find a mortgage when you’ve just launched a business. With doctor mortgages, however, you can successfully borrow money to secure a property purchase.

        One feature of doctor mortgages is the willingness of lenders to look at your potential revenue. If you have a contract with the NHS, for example, potential lenders will have confidence in your ability to generate a baseline of revenue, which means they will be more willing to offer you a mortgage.

        Mortgages for Locums and Temporary Contracts

        As well as serving full-time medical professionals, doctor mortgages are also designed for doctors working on temporary contracts or locum doctors who work variable hours. If you work on an on-going basis but switch between temporary contracts, for example, this shouldn’t hold you back when it comes to getting on the property ladder.

        Similarly, if your income varies because you work on an ad-hoc basis, this needn’t prevent you from buying a new home. As your income as a locum can vary significantly, a doctor mortgages lender may look at your average income over the last few months or years and base your borrowing eligibility on that figure, which puts you in a better position.

        Finding the Right Doctor Mortgages

        With so many different financial products on the market, it’s important to find the right doctor mortgage for you. Whether you’re a full-time GP, a dentist on a temporary contract or a part-time locum, there are doctor mortgages to suit your needs.

        What is a mortgage?

        If you want to own your home, you will probably need a mortgage. A mortgage is basically a loan to help you pay for your house. With the average cost of a home in the UK currently standing at over £200,000 (https://www.zoopla.co.uk/house-prices/uk/), very few can pay for it outright.

        There are mortgages options available to suit most circumstances, including first time buyers, those who are re-mortgaging and people who are moving up the property ladder. In most cases, you will need to put down a deposit before you can obtain a mortgage.

        Buying your home is essentially the biggest purchase you’ll ever make in your life – and the most important. Although you often end up paying much more back, it can make owning a home affordable.

        Benefits of using a mortgage advisor…

        A mortgage advisor is particularly important for first time buyers, but it is worthwhile seeing one, even if you have had a mortgage before. There are many different types of mortgages out there and an advisor will be able to help you understand which is right for you.

        A mortgage is a huge financial commitment, so you need to be sure you make the right decision. It is always worthwhile seeking the guidance of a specialist who can advise on the different types of mortgages available to you, give advice on how much you can realistically afford to borrow and help you with your application. An independent mortgage advisor may be a good way to get the mortgage you want.

        What to look for in your next mortgage…

        It is important to understand exactly what you will be paying. A mortgage might have low rates, but high fees, so this is something to look out for. You should have a good understanding of how much you will be paying and how you will afford this, before you make any decisions. Consider the tie ins of the mortgage, as you never know whether your situation will change.

        The last thing you want is to end up with extra fees you didn’t realise you were getting. You also need to know whether the rate is fixed or subject to change and which of these you feel most comfortable with. There may also be flexibility, where you can overpay or take mortgage breaks, and this can be valuable in the decision-making process.

        It is important to understand all the facts about the mortgage, before you decide. This is where we can help. Contact us today so we can help to find the right mortgage for you.
