Roots Mortgages is an expert in contractor mortgages and freelancer mortgages.
We have access to over 12,000 mortgages from more than 90 lenders.
We specialise in finding the perfect mortgages for those working as contractors and freelancers. Our team has an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of working in this way, and the challenges of securing mortgages when doing so.
Roots also offers residential mortgages, so no matter what stage of contracting you are at, be it a complete newbie, a contractor with decades of experience, or someone looking to flex between contracting and employment we have a mortgage for you.
It doesn’t matter if you know the exact type of mortgage you want, or are a first time buyer, we’re here to help.
All of our advisors are available to guide you through your options and explain how the rest of process works in detail. All you need to do is book an initial appointment, at no cost at all, and they will walk you through everything. It couldn’t be more simple.
We offer all customers a free no obligation appointment with a fully qualified mortgage advisor.
This is now often undertaken via telephone or video call, but on occasions can be done face-to-face. All appointments are at a time of your choosing, including weekends and out of office hours, where we get an initial understanding of your circumstances and advise on the range of options available specifically to you.
Follow up calls and discussions take place to get a full understanding of your unique circumstance, and when you decide the time is right we will make an application to the mortgage lender – it is only at this point will we charge a fee, and this will be clearly advised, communicated and agreed with you in advance.
Once the application is in, it only remains to ensure you, your family and property is protected. We offer a wide range of insurances, including life, critical illness and building & contents. Many customers overlook the protection element, meaning what is likely their largest debt in their lifetime (their mortgage) is at risk. We want to ensure that should the worst happen, you have the peace of mind that you and your loved ones are not left out of pocket.

Standard high street mortgages don’t get how freelancers operate; they only know employees who earn via payslips…
We recognise that many customers switch between the contracting and freelancing life and being a standard employee…
