At the same time, the Dudley Building Society “opened up its entire range of residential products to independent applicants with only one year of accounts.”

The mutual says that this decision will help reduce the “gap” in the treatment of mortgage loans between employees and the self-employed.

Managing Director of the Dudley Building Society Jeremy Wood says, “The company believes that self-employment should not be a barrier to homeownership.

Our decision to open our products to those with only one year of accounts is designed to remove some of the barriers to homeownership that independent applicants face.

As a lender, we take our role as facilitator for future homeowners very seriously and it is up to us to respond positively to an ever-changing world.

The world of work is no exception. It is estimated that there are over 4.5 million self-employed people in the UK, around 15% of the workforce and these numbers are on the rise.

At the same time, the world of work, far from offering workers the same security as before, must adapt to an economy where cycles of upswing and downsizing of companies are more frequent.

So while employment always retains the cachet of ‘security’ and lenders are happy with the way employee mortgages work, there is no reason why we shouldn’t constantly reassess risk. related to self-employment. ”
