Enhance Your Mortgage Approval Odds
Navigating the mortgage landscape as a seafarer poses unique challenges. Whether you’re on a yacht, tanker, container ship, or cruise liner, the demands of your profession can complicate the mortgage application process. Prolonged periods at sea make it difficult to visit your bank or provide the necessary documentation promptly.
Moreover, many lenders are hesitant to extend mortgages to individuals not consistently based in the UK or those with a transient lifestyle. This perceived higher risk, combined with factors like the Seafarers Earnings Deduction (SED), which, while advantageous for tax reduction, may limit the consideration of your full earnings, can turn securing a mortgage into a daunting task—especially if you’re paid in a foreign currency or employed by a non-UK company.
