John Charcol today announces that it has entered into an exclusive partnership with IPSE (the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed) to provide its members expert advice and support when obtaining a mortgage. This dedicated service will enable IPSE members to access John Charcol experts with particular knowledge of helping freelance and self employed professionals with their needs.
IPSE members will also receive a concierge service free of charge, to make moving-in day as stress-free as possible. This includes broadband and council tax set-up, and removal arrangements for IPSE members saving approximately £300.
The Office for National Statistics found that the self-employed made up 15.1% of the UK labour force in 2017 – a total of 4.8 million people. What’s more, the number of women opting for self-employment is constantly rising: between 2000-2017 the number of self-employed women in the UK increased by 77%. John Charcol has a long history of supporting underserved clients and and is committed to helping IPSE members obtain the best possible advice and support when obtaining a mortgage.
Nick Morrey, Product Technical Manager at John Charcol said: “We are delighted to be partnering with IPSE to assist their independent professional and self-employed members. These professionals continue to be underserved by mortgage providers in many regards and can often find it more difficult to obtain lending”.
Chris Bryce, Chief Executive of IPSE, commented: “IPSE is delighted to be partnering with John Charcol to provide our members with an excellent deal when looking for a mortgage. Freelancers and the self-employed can often struggle with getting a mortgage, so the service John Charcol is offering will be a vital aid to our members.”
