Cost’s Chief of Finance shares her opinions on the subject:

“Self-certified mortgages are designed for people who cannot verify their income. This can be for a number of reasons; income comes from several sources, have a basic salary but also receive commission/bonuses. These mortgage types are great because it means that a mortgage can be obtained where otherwise it wouldn’t be offered.”

Self-certification mortgages are usually ideal for those who are self-employed as they are unable to prove their income through certified accounts or they haven’t been a business long enough to be able to produce the required number of years’ accounts.

As you are unable to produce certified accounts, lenders base their rates for this mortgage type on your credit history as well as previous lenders’ references.

The loan-to-value ratios are usually lower with a self-certified mortgage which means that larger deposits are often required.

Self-certified mortgages are often victim to high interest rates.
