    Last year when I wanted to raise some funds for building work ( I had no mortgage at the time) I went direct to my personal bank, Halifax. Easy and understanding of a contractor and offered far more than I wanted to borrow at a good rate too.

    That's what I did too earlier this year. Halifax base lending on turnover and not sal/divs only.
    Don't use L&C as they were cr*p.

    I've heard in various places that Halifax are really quite contractor friendly. I guess it helps to have a banking relationship with them but it's not entirely necessary.

    You don't need a banking relationship with them at all. Just proof of contract with at least 2 months to run I think it is. You don't even need to provide previous years accounts.

    Pretty much this, just show them the contract and you should be good.

    Halifax love a contractor.

    Borrowed 4.5x contractor income (assumed 48 weeks) 2 months after going contracting. All they needed was evidence of at least a month left to run when the offer was made and convincing that I had prior experience in the same line of work.

    Mortgaged to the hilt with eye-watering payments - pre-credit crunch careless lending is back!
