Investec taking bonus income into consideration
Investec are targeting borrowers struggling to secure a mortgage because large parts of their salary are paid via an annual or quarterly bonus.
The bank says they will potentially lend up to 100% of a bonus providing the applicant has a track record of receiving it. Some lenders are happier to accept bonus income than others and, if you canâ€™t raise a large enough mortgage, Trinity may be able to help. Â
Most high street lenders tend to take around half of a bonus into consideration for mortgage purposes. HSBC go a little bit further and ask for proof of the last three yearâ€™s bonuses and then they accept half of it. Â
Halifax may take up to 60% of a bonus into consideration, although in contrast Coventry Building Society will not take any annual bonuses at all.
