Financing your home

Financing your home

When you are working in veterinary practice and looking for a mortgage, it’s likely that you will come across some obstacles when trying to find the right solution for financing your home.

A major reason for this is because in a lot of cases, mortgage lenders are not familiar with the way veterinary staff are paid.

Providing the right income confirmation to these lenders can become difficult – especially if you’re a Practice owner, self-employed or locum. This makes the process of arranging your own mortgage harder than it needs to be – let alone then finding one that is competitively priced.


As a locum, most lenders will consider you to be self-employed. This can cause issues when applying for a mortgage because the lender will need to see three years’ proof of income from self-employed applicants.

We also find that some locums will dip in and out of this type of work to suit their lifestyle or training obligations. Unfortunately, this often doesn’t fit with the income history required by lenders.

New in Practice?

If you have recently joined a practice as a partner or director, many lenders will consider you to be newly self-employed. As a result, typical high street lenders won’t consider a mortgage application from you for at least two years.
