Self-employed mortgages

Please be aware all mortgage products were withdrawn at 5pm on Thursday 4 August, except for Self-Build. This is so we can focus on processing our existing applications as quickly as possible and restore our service levels to normal. System issues mean products are still visible on the portal, but applications received after the deadline will NOT be accepted. Please keep checking back for updates for when our new products will be launched.

Contact the Intermediary Support Team (01799 582 925 or ist@saffronbs.co.uk) with any queries, and thanks for your understanding at this busy time.

For those working on a self-employed basis, this mortgage is available for applicants with only 1 or 2 year’s accounts

If your client runs their own business or works on a self-employed basis, our self-employed mortgage products can provide applicants with more flexibility. This product is also available to First Time Buyers.
