How To Get A Mortgage With A Stipend Income?
Can you get a mortgage with a stipend income? Yes, you can. You just need to access a specialist lender or mortgage provider rather than a high street bank.
Most high street banks require full time salaries in order to lend for a mortgage. So people with stipend incomes will likely have a challenge on their hands when it comes to finding a lender who will accept them for a mortgage.
There are lenders who will take stipend income into consideration when it comes to applying for a mortgage. But you might need to use a mortgage broker to get access to these lenders as many of them will not deal with customers directly.

- Find a mortgage advisor.

- Your mortgage broker will search & negotiate on your behalf.
- View the options provided by your broker
- Choose the best deal for you.
- Obtaining a ‘Decision In Principle
- Your details will go through underwriting.

- Your mortgage offer will be made.
What Is A Stipend Income?
A stipend income is a type of payment, usually a remuneration for living costs, time, or other expenses associated with work or study. It differs from a salary, which is a yearly wage from an employer.
A stipend is often given to the clergy, PhD students, or charity workers and may not be as regular as a salary. This can make it difficult as your income on a mortgage application.
