Nationwide Building Society will only accept income from furloughed workers who have returned to work or will be returning to work by the 2nd November 2020.
An income cannot be used where an applicant doesn’t have a firm return work date
An income cannot be used where an applicant doesn’t have a firm return work date, or if their work date is after the 2nd November 2020. This applies to all applicants regardless of if they apply directly through Nationwide of through a Mortgage Broker in Sheffield and in response to the closure of the Governments furlough support scheme closure.
Depending on if the applicant is fully returning to work no later than the 2nd November and has the firm return date to work, Nationwide will use up to 100% of a basic income, including income that is currently treated as basic.
Conformation the applicant’s terms and condition of employment will remain unchanged till the 2nd November, or full details of where there be a variation in the employment contract.
As the governments’ coronavirus job retention scheme comes to a close at the end of October we must ensure, as a responsible lender, that members can afford their mortgage payments both now and in the future.
Nationwide will take up to 100% of an applicant’s basic income
That is why we are asking all mortgage applicants from 13th August to provide a letter from their employer outlining a firm return to work date. Once that is confirmed, Nationwide will take up to 100% of an applicant’s basic income into consideration.
