We carried out some research amongst over 900 self employed people in conjuction with IPSE – The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed – about how they feel about applying for a mortgage.

The results show that many self employed people have concerns about being accepted for a mortgage and what lifestyle implications that might have for them.

At Ipswich Building Society, we can’t promise to lend to every self employed person but we do understand that your income is not necessarily as cut and dried as it might be for an employed person. What we can promise is that one of our qualified mortgage consultants will consider each and every mortgage application individually – we don’t use computers to make our lending decisions as we prefer to take individual circumstances in to consideration.
