If you are one of the above and are being paid, or are due to start being paid within the next 6 months, then you can be eligible for a mortgage (subject to standard criteria).\r\n\r\n<a href="https:\/\/enquiries.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/match-me-with-a-specialist-broker" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" aria-label=" (opens in a new tab)">Make an enquiry<\/a> for free, no-obligation advice from one of the expert advisors we work with. We\u2019ll match you with a whole-of-market mortgage broker experienced in successfully arranging mortgages for doctors.\r\n\r\n[feefo-banner]\r\n<h2 id="newly-qualified">Mortgages for doctors that are newly qualified<\/h2>\r\nIf you have just qualified and started a job, or are about to start a job (within the next 6 months) then you may be eligible to borrow without the standard 3 months in employment.\r\n<h2 id="locum-doctor">Locum mortgage<\/h2>\r\nAs a locum doctor or nurse, you will find yourself doing variable hours, random shifts and, potentially, have gaps in employment.\r\nYou may also be locuming on top of your main job to earn extra cash.\r\n\r\nSo long as all the jobs you\u2019re doing are deemed sustainable, it\u2019s possible to use this income for mortgage purposes despite having a lack of job security in a permanent contract.\r\n\r\nTypically, the lenders which consider locum work, and the vagaries of this kind of work, will go from an average of your last few months\/years income.\r\n<h2 id="junior">Trainee or junior doctor mortgage<\/h2>\r\nAs a trainee or junior doctor, you are likely to be on zero or lower wage than your more experienced\/qualified colleagues. But you are on the progression path and, as a result, if you are due to progress from junior to a more senior role, a mortgage lender can sometimes offer the mortgage based on the higher expected salary in certain circumstances.\r\n<h2 id="temp-contract">Mortgages for doctors on temporary contracts<\/h2>\r\nMortgages for doctors on temporary contracts are usually no problem for specialist mortgage lenders as long as your temporary contract has at least a couple of months remaining. It\u2019s also helpful if you can prove the likelihood that you will either be renewing the current contract or expecting to get a new one elsewhere.\r\n<h2 id="self-employed">Self-employed doctors mortgage<\/h2>\r\nIn certain roles within the medical profession, you will go from a salaried position into a self-employed position.\r\n\r\nThis is more common with dentists and private healthcare professionals, but can be relevant to anyone in medicine. When this happens, the majority of lenders will decline your application unless you have 2 or 3 years submitted accounts\/tax returns.\r\n\r\nHowever, thankfully there are certain lenders who will either use just 1 year of accounts, or even accept your <a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/self-employed-mortgages\/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" aria-label=" (opens in a new tab)">self-employed mortgage<\/a> application from day one (see our guide to <a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/self-employed-mortgages\/mortgage-without-accounts\/">self-employed mortgages with no accounts<\/a> if you're applying under these circumstances).\r\n<h2>Practice principal newly self-employed<\/h2>\r\nTo get a mortgage with a self-employed income and no accounts history is pretty much impossible for any other profession.\r\n\r\nHowever, with no contract or evidence of income yourself, a specialist lender will consider the mortgage by establishing from the practice what the pay for your role is likely to be.\r\n\r\nThis is usually based on what your predecessor earned for the same role in the most recent year.\r\n<h2 id="speak-to-expert">Speak to a mortgage broker for people in the medical profession<\/h2>\r\nIf you\u2019re ready to press ahead with your mortgage application or need expert advice, <a href="https:\/\/enquiries.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/match-me-with-a-specialist-broker">make an enquiry<\/a> and we\u2019ll introduce you to a broker who specialises in mortgages for doctors and other medical professions.\r\n\r\nSpeaking to an expert with in-depth knowledge of your industry means you stand the best chance of finding the right lender the first time, which could potentially save you time, money and disappointment.\r\n\r\nWe won\u2019t charge a penny to introduce you to one of the advisors we work with, there\u2019s no obligation and it won\u2019t leave any marks on your credit report.
