Hi Does anyone know if you can apply for a mortgage if your contract is only temporary. It is a joint mortgage and partners job is permanent but mine is to cover a maternity leave. Officially ending Feb 08 but is likely to be sooner as at the moment she wants to return ASAP. As this is more than a year's contract is it possible to secure a mortgage on it. I am hoping to get another job in September and if not teraching would settle for something else until teaching comes along so won't be unemployed. Help!!
