    How many years self assessments to apply for mortgage?

    Hi all

    how many years self assessment returns do I need for them to count as income on a mortgage application please?

    wasnt sure which forum to put this in

    You have to ask the Mortgage lender before you decide to apply. They may require certification by accountant instead.

    When trading companies apply to the banks for loan, they are usually required to show last 3 years audited accounts.


      Hi bhodgkiss
      It depends on how long you have owned property as an investment but normally lenders like to see at the very least the last two years Self Assessments supported by either the corresponding SA302 RO Tax Overview, clearly if you have only been doing it for under the two years then 1 year will be sufficient: If you have more than 3 mortgaged properties you will be expected to provide a myriad of supporting documents given that this type of investor falls under the new PRA rules , please refer to my post of 72 hours ago on this matter. Crucial in any submissions is the production of Bank Statements showing receipt of the rental as well as the payment of the associated mortgages.


        It would actually be for applying for a remortgage on my main residential property (and releasing equity)
        The more I can show I earn the bigger equity release I can do
        So alongwith my main job, i should also be able to show two years self assessment tax returns as additional income?

          I feel I have messed up my life. Despite working hard, I have landed on a banana skin.

          I bought a 3 bedroom house many years ago. It seemed like a nice area. Little did I know, nearby the local housing associations had housed the thugs like the Kray twins and their chums. It was a "problem...

          You will also get Letting Relief and Private Residence Relief and your personal Annual Allowance for CGT. Your bill maybe a lot less than you think.

          I think your assessed Tax Band is the key, not your Income, which can vary. eg Benefit in Kind, net profit from property etc
          Govt can easily alter qualifying Income.

        • Lease Extension Subject to Taxation?
          Hi there. I live in a Victorian property which has been divided into 5 flats.
          Several years ago, three of the flat owners (including myself) purchased the freehold. The two remaining flat owners decided that they would not participate in the freehold purchase.
          A company was formed for the...

          Normally the freehold company will report the income received from lease extension as "annual profit" in its annual acounts which are produced after the year end.

          The profit will be reported in the tax return and about 13 months later the company get a tax bill of around 20%....

          CGT is only 18% (28 If you earn a lot). You still get 82% of any increase in value.
          Plus the rental income.

          Dates when you lived in the property.

          Thank you very much for your response - I appreciate any assistance.
          The only trouble is that there are two companies involved (I should have mentioned this previously!)
          One company is the freehold company (representing the interests of the freeholders - collecting ground rent, leasehold...

          I'd leave the money in the company, and relieve the directors of paying service charge until such time as the cash is depleted.
