Mortgages for Cricket Professionals

Prospect Tree Mortgages specialise in obtaining mortgages for professional and semi professional sports people. We have in depth knowledge of lenders criteria, which is invaluable when sourcing mortgages for any niche profession or client type.
​ 
We work with Cricketers with various contract lengths including players who have recently received their first professional contract.

A Cricket players income

Similar to a professional footballer, a professional Cricket player will have a contract with a Club that employs them. The contract length can vary but will have a commencement and termination date. The Cricket Clubs’ approved contract will stipulate the basic income. The contract will also state the basic salary, match fees and any individual and team bonuses a player may receive.

​The world of professional Cricket is moving at a rapid pace, with more opportunities available within the UK and abroad as more and more limited over tournaments pop up. If you are lucky enough to be selected to play in any of these tournaments you will likely be paid in a foreign currency and have a potential tax liability overseas. Some lenders in the UK will not be able to use this income if not declared properly.

​We would always recommend discussing the best way to do this with a qualified accountant to make sure you are in an informed position prior to applying for a mortgage.

How do mortgage lenders treat cricket contract income?

​Not all lenders are happy to lend where the contract is not permanent. This excludes many sports professionals on fixed term contracts, such as professional Cricket players. 

As an independent Mortgage Broker with access to the entire mortgage market we work with lenders that will use 100% of the basic salary plus any bonuses received. In addition, many of the players we work with have income from advertising and sponsorship. 

It is often the case that a player may have set up a Ltd company for additional income sources such as these and others. We will be able to find the right lender that will use this income in addition to your main contracted income.
