Mortgages for Law Firm Partners are a specialist area of lending. We work with clients based both in the UK and abroad. Our repertoire of lenders includes private banks, high street banks, building societies and broker exclusive mortgage providers.

Assessing your income.

One of the main complexities in sourcing property finance for a law firm partner comes from the fact that typically a law firm partner will have a small percentage holding in the parent company. Profits are distributed and reported to HMRC by the partner via an online tax return. This method of income means that you are classed as self-employed.

Many high street banks will require 3 years of tax returns, the actual forms required are the tax calculation form which will show your income from all sources including employment, self-employment and income from property and land. As a whole of market broker, we can access lenders that have flexibility in their approach to providing mortgages for law firm partners.

We can secure finance using just one years tax return or we can utilise the income from the latest year only, this is very helpful where the latest year is substantially higher than the previous year and averaging the 2 years would be detrimental to the amount that can be borrowed.

Foreign currency income and UK national’s resident abroad.

Many of our clients are based abroad or receive their income or bonuses in a foreign currency. In this instance the number of lenders willing to lend shrinks again. We work with lenders that can will recognise income paid in euros, dirhams, dollars and many of the other major currencies. In addition, we work with British expatriates based across the globe to secure finance on commercial and residential property in the UK.
