Can I get a mortgage as a limited company director?

Yes! If you’re the director of a limited company, you may be finding the search for a mortgage a little confusing. That’s because the way you apply varies depending on your exact circumstances. Most mortgage providers would class a limited company director with less than a 25% share in the company as an employee and they therefore would apply for a standard residential mortgage using income. Company directors with more than a 25% share, however, would need to apply as self-employed. A specialist mortgage broker from our team will be more than happy to talk through your situation with you and formulate the best approach for you.

Can I use a director’s loan for a mortgage deposit?

Yes, it is possible to use funds from your company for a house deposit through a director’s loan. Most mortgage lenders will want to make sure this won’t have an adverse impact on your business or your personal outgoings.

They may request evidence from your business accounts to confirm the business’ ability to lend you the money. If they can see that the loan won’t affect the sustainability of your future income and how the business will manage moving forwards, there is likely to be no issue with using this sum for your deposit.

Will I have to put down a bigger deposit for a mortgage as a Ltd company director?

No, being a limited company director doesn’t mean you need a bigger deposit. Of course, putting down a larger sum of money is always going to boost your chances of mortgage approval with many lenders because a larger deposit reduces the Loan to Value (LTV) ratio, and therefore the risk. You may also be able to access lower rates of interest if you can increase the size of your deposit.

If you can’t manage a large deposit, however, that shouldn’t be a problem.Talk to our expert team today and we can start moving your company director mortgage application in the right direction and identify suitable mortgage lenders for your circumstances.

Will only my salary and dividends be assessed when I apply for a mortgage?

Yes! Most borrowers choose to use their salary and dividends as income for their mortgage applications, leaving the cash in the business to fund future growth or minimise personal tax bills. However, this can reduce the amount you can borrow for a mortgage.

Other options, which some borrowers choose, is to look for a lender who will consider their share of net or gross profits. While many high street lenders may not consider this, a specialist lender may be willing to allow a larger sum to be borrowed. If you want to look into the options available, our friendly team can seek out a limited company director mortgage best suited to your circumstances, with a specialist lender who will consider company profits as well as income.

Ltd company director mortgage FAQs.

Yes, you can still get a mortgage if you took any bounce back or CBILS loans during the pandemic. Most lenders will look at the reasons you took the loan in the first place and whether you have paid this back or whether it will continue. Your specialist mortgage advisor will be able to understand which lender is most suitable for a mortgage when you have taken a bounce back loan. Have the dates and the amounts in front of you when you speak to us and we’ll be happy to advise you.

Yes, it will reduce the number of lenders available because you may need to look for a mortgage deal where your retained gross or net profits are used. This will be the case if your director’s salary is not enough for the amount you are looking to borrow.

The use of retained profit and your salary combined in your mortgage application may enable you to achieve the maximum loan amount you need. Our team of mortgage experts specialise in self-employment mortgages, so we’ll help you find the most suitable deal for your circumstances.

Yes, you can still get a mortgage as a company director with bad credit. Whilst bad credit isn’t ideal, many different factors come into play when your application is processed, and bad credit won’t necessarily be a deal breaker with the right lender.

The impact your bad credit has will depend on its severity and how long ago it took place. If you want to talk things through, get hold of a copy of your credit report and your latest accounts andgive our mortgage brokers a call!
