Remortgaging in Worsley when the Client is not in ‘Full Time’ Employment

This page is about the mortgages and remortgages that are available to people not in ‘full time’ employment, but rather on an employment contract. In this example our client was looking to remortgage their Worsley home. They called into our Swinton office to discuss their options.


Manchester Mortgages received this enquiry through our Contact Page on our Website.

worsley canalOur prospective clients were a homeowners living in the Worsley area of Manchester looking to remortgage their property to carry out major renovations and increase the size of their home.

Both were employed with a good joint income.

One of the clients had Student Loan and with a monthly payment of £ 148 per month.

They also had two dependent children with £500 per month child care costs

The estimated value of their property was £275,000 and the new mortgage required was £185,000


Taking all of the above into consideration you would not think our clients would have a problem obtaining a mortgage as there would be plenty of equity left in their Worsley property after the remortgage had taken place.

However one of the applicants was a newly qualified teacher in his first job on a twelve month contract and very few lenders were prepared to offer a mortgage because of this fact. This is because an employment contract like this is considered a fixed term employment contract rather than full time permanent employment.


After researching the whole of the market Manchester Mortgages found a high street Building Society (Accord Mortgages a lending division of Yorkshire Building Society) willing to lend on a competitive five year fixed rate. Carried out a free mortgage valuation of their Worsley property. Would pay the legal costs for transferring the mortgage over from their existing lender Halifax plc. In addition to this they would also provide them with a five hundred pounds cashback on completion of the mortgage.

The interest rate they were able to offer was 1.80%.


mortgage approvedOur clients are now in a position to instruct their builder to start work on the renovations on their house in Worlsey enabling them to create more room for their family to grow up in.

At the end of the fixed rate period Manchester Mortgages will be able to contact them to review their mortgage requirements again to ensure that they are paying the most competitive rate for their circumstances.

Manchester Mortgages were also able to advise and arrange the Life Assurance to provide valuable protection of new mortgage should the very worst happen.
