A colleague of mine recently bought a house in Bury, Greater Manchester. He was a first time buyer and went for something that was affordable - a simple 2 up / 2 down terrace on the way out to Tottington.
As he was self employed he found that getting approved for a mortgage was not the most straightforward thing he'd ever done. He didn't have any employers pay slips for example but he was able to demonstrate a regular payments into his account that would adequately cover his mortgage outgoing.
The problem was that these payments were never for a standard amount. This meant that banks were not interested in lending him money. The broker / adviser he used to get him his mortgage was Manchester Mortgages (you can view their Bury page here - https://manchestermortgages.co.uk/bury-mortgage-broker-advisor/)
