A Guide to Getting a Mortgage as a Nurse

Although nursing is a highly valued career, the training process can be long and arduous, as well as costly. Due to this, many nurses start their careers with a significant amount of student debt, resulting in nurses and other medical professionals finding it difficult to get on the property ladder.

Can I Get a Mortgage as a Nurse?

Varying working arrangements can make it difficult getting a mortgage as a nurse from high street lenders. With shift allowances and overtime pay, your take-home salary may fluctuate by a considerable amount, which could prevent you from accessing a mortgage from a traditional lender.

However, this needn’t prevent you from buying your own home. The good news is, there are lenders out there that can assist, so your career choice needn’t stop you from moving forward with your life. Our experienced mortgage advisors will help you find the best mortgage tailored to your circumstances, giving you peace of mind.

Will Student Loans affect my Mortgage?

When anyone applies for a mortgage, the lender will want to know how much you earn and what your essential expenditure amounts to each month. In addition to this, the mortgage provider will check your debt levels and your repayment history before deciding whether or not to offer you a mortgage.

As nursing students typically have to fund a lot of their training themselves, they can have a considerable amount of debt. Getting a mortgage as a nurse can make standard mortgage applications problematic, specialist lenders are familiar with this predicament.

Fortunately, this means that the impact student loans and associated debt on your mortgage eligibility can be negated. While you will still need to show that you can fund your loan repayments along with monthly mortgage payments, outstanding student loans and debt shouldn’t  prevent you from getting a mortgage as a nurse.

What Discounts can I get as a Nurse?

Nurses and other medical professionals often qualify for mortgage discount schemes and help to buy programs, which are all viable options for nurses who want to buy their own property.

Of course, there are often additional local schemes which should be considered too.
