Freelancer Financials is a trading style of Mortgage Quest Ltd. Since inception in 2004, Freelancer Financials has devoted itself to changing lenders’ biased attitudes towards the flexible labour workforce (The Gig economy) – professional contractors, freelancers, CIS workers, Zero-hour contractors, self-employed professionals and business owners.
We’ve developed underwriting criteria with many lenders, often holding their hands through pilot programmes. By educating lenders in the nuances of contracting, with our help they now know how to assess a professional contractor’s true mortgage affordability. Our reward is the implicit trust from lenders and the contracting community.
Due to our hard work, contractors today have the opportunity to get a mortgage based on what they’re really worth. Irrespective of their trading structure, Ltd or PAYE Umbrella, in or outside IR35, they can borrow based on their gross contract income. not just post-tax accounts or payslips.
We’ve become one of the largest, most authoritative UK contractor mortgage specialists and one of the largest specialist mortgage brokers, outright. All this, yet we remain a family owned, independent mortgage brokerage of 35 people.
