The benefits of a professional mortgage 

13th June 2024

Professional mortgages are designed to meet the unique financial needs of qualified professionals. Mortgage lenders will often offer flexible repayment options, competitive interest rates and a higher loan-to-value on their professional mortgage option. Mortgages for professionals are a tailored solution to help professionals manage their finances in a way that works for their lifestyle. 

What is a professional mortgage? 

A professional mortgage is an enhanced mortgage created specifically for individuals in certain professions of a certain level within a specific field or industry. The Hodge Professional Mortgage is offered to a broad range of professionals from accountants and architects to mortgage advisers, IT consultants and teachers. We cater to professionals at various career stages, from newly qualified to seasoned professionals.  

If you fit within one of the accepted professions, it’s worth looking into if a professional mortgage can get you a better interest rate, a bigger loan, or more flexible borrowing terms. 

What are the benefits of a professional mortgage? 

Professional mortgages come with several benefits: 

Flexible mortgage repayments: You can enjoy adaptable repayment options to fit your financial situation from repayment to interest only. This can be helpful if you’re looking to lower your monthly outgoings.  

Increased borrowing potential: With an increased borrowing power of up to six times income with a Hodge Professional Mortgage, and no minimum or maximum time since qualification – you could be able to afford a home that better suits your lifestyle, sooner than you thought.   

All income streams considered: Professionals can often have a more complex income than other types of paid employment. As we accept 100% of all validated incomes plus multiple income streams/complex income accepted including locum work. This means your whole financial picture is being considered to maximise your affordability.
