I’ve been a contractor for a number of years with regular clients and stable income. My question is why is it so difficult to get a home loan as a contractor?
Mick, it shouldn't be that difficult. Lenders want to be able to evidence your earnings capacity to ensure you have the ability to repay their loan. The structure of your contractual work will depend on the requirements you need to show the lender that you have the ability to repay the loan. Usually you show 2 years tax returns & providing the income is consistent & adequate then it should not be too difficult. Plus there are other ways of structuring the loan.
Happy to discuss options with you.

Peter is 100% correct. It simply comes down to the income you have declared on your tax returns. Each lender views self employed people differently. I would suggest you give Peter a call and he can take you through the 25-30 lenders he deals with and find you some options
Best of luck
