What are Mortgages for Barristers?
Barristers mortgages are mortgages for barristers. Barrister mortgages are available to Barristers who are registered with the Bar Council and practising in the UK. Mortgages for Barristers is a specialist area at Capital Fortune.
We understand the legal market. We particularly understand the remuneration structure of Barristers in private practice. Barristers requiring mortgages need to satisfy the mortgage lender that the loan is affordable, however, often Barristers need to rely upon their gross earnings receipts which can be significantly higher than net income.
The costs for chambers, travel, legal subscriptions and subsistence often reduce the net figure down to around 30- 40%. As a result, standard mortgage income multipliers applied to the net income of Barristers can be unfair, as they do not reflect a barrister’s true earnings capacity.
This coupled with the Barrister’s Aged Debt simply does not reflect either the earnings capacity or net asset worth of a trading Barrister. Mortgages for Barristers need to reflect the unique remuneration package received by barristers. Often a degree of diplomacy and negotiation is required when dealing with a Barristers internet mortgage application to a mortgage lender.
At Capital Fortune, we appreciate that ongoing trading costs are not immediate and Chambers rent is often paid on the previous quarter’s earnings not the current quarter. Other costs are incurred throughout the year and as a result, Barristers through their distinct method of trading have almost a rolling credit facility being operated which can justify a home mortgage lender to assess affordability on a gross earnings basis as opposed to a net income multiplier.
