Mortgage Brokers warn home buyers that Zero-Hour employment contracts may hurt their chances of buying houses for sale, because it lacks the guarantee of a fixed income, (Telegraph.co.uk reported on 16 March 2014).
The report explained that zero hour employees are always on-call without a minimum work week specified in their contracts. The Office of National Statistics estimated that there are 583,000 employees in the U.K. with zero hour contracts.
“Under the traditional process, lenders favour a fixed income. So it’s not surprising that home buyers with a Zero-hour contract or who are self-employed are knocked out of the property market,” commented Rick Otton, a highly respected property coach.
“I believe that the traditional way of thinking has robbed a lot of people the chance to become home owners, that’s why it’s about time to try new strategies that can help anyone, even zero-hour employees, fulfil their dream of home ownership without having to save up money for years or even apply for new mortgages,” he discussed.
Mr. Otton then revealed in a recent interview for his Free Pack that U.K. residents should feel that they only have limited options to buy houses, rather they should start thinking creatively to broaden their choices and open them to new possibilities.
“Limited options in bank financing shouldn’t be the dead end to home ownership, because there are many other ways to finance property other than bank loans. One that’s gaining traction around the U.K. is through buying and selling houses with the help of seller finance strategies,” he shared.
“With this setup, buyers don’t need to make a large deposit payment when they agree to buy the property for sale at the price the seller wants. In exchange, the seller gives hime some flexibility on how can he make the payments on the house,” according to Mr. Otton.
