Will me being a student stop us getting a mortgage?

Posted on 6 December 2012 by Chloe

Hi, me and my partner are looking into buying a house through a government scheme and I was wondering would me being a student hinder our chances of getting a mortgage?

Many thanks,



Without knowing the full picture regarding both of your personal situations, it's very difficult to answer. Lenders have a wide variety of different criteria, and ways in which they assess affordability, so we would need to know more about you both, before being able to guide you further.

If you'd like to discuss your enquiry in more detail, then please let me know and I'll arrange for one of our consultants to contact you.




More than mortgages, talk to me about:
Financial Protection | Investments | Personal and Corporate Pensions | Home Insurance
General Insurance | Valuations | Conveyancing | Wills | Home finders
