HOME OF THE
SELF-EMPLOYED MORTGAGE

Whether you’re self-employed, a contractor or freelancer, our range of mortgages are designed to work for you.

Although 15% of the UK workforce is self-employed, some don’t apply for a mortgage for fear of rejection.

WE MAKE THINGS EASIER

Mortgages shouldn’t be complicated just because you’re self-employed.

For example, we don't place restrictions on professions so you could be a builder, croupier, start-up entrepreneur or a dentist. We go out of way to make things as easy as possible so your mortgage adviser can get you the mortgage you need.

ONE SIZE DOESN'T FIT ALL

As one of the UK’s leading specialist mortgage lenders, we’ve always seen things differently and don’t believe in the "one size fits all" approach of many high street lenders.

That’s why our lending criteria are designed to flex with your individual circumstances and we use human underwriters to assess your application rather than relying on automated credit scoring. With a wide range of Kensington mortgages to choose from, your adviser can select the one that's the best fit for you.
