Latest Year Figures

Retained Profit

Gross Profit

If there is an upward trend in income across the last few years, it makes sense to your latest year only (instead of averaging).

If you decide to keep money in the business, this can still be used in the affordability calculation. 

Our lenders will consider using gross profit, instead of net profit, which will help to maximise your mortgage.

Can you get a mortgage on a property in a flood zone?

 

For obvious reasons, lenders generally prefer properties with a low risk of flooding. Risk is often identified by the distance to a body of water (such as a river or a lake). Flooding is becoming a common occurrence in the UK so this continue to be an issue. 

 

Flood insurance 

 

If a lender is willing to accept your property, they may require flood insurance to be taken out. Clearly flooding may seriously damage the property (and therefore the value of the property), so insurance protects the lender and the borrower. 

 

Properties in high flood areas are more expensive to insure, so make sure you budget for this when purchasing a property. Our advisors will be able to help you find a suitable insurance product.
