Today, we find that most schools only offer newly qualified teachers (NQT’s) a 12-month initial contract as standard. Therefore this becomes an issue for any teachers looking to get onto the property ladder. Most of the high street mortgage lenders will see them as being a “contract worker”.
Due to this factor, taking out a mortgage as a teacher will require you to have been in your role for 12 months. Luckily, some smaller lenders are understanding towards these circumstances and may consider your application without a 12-month history.
