With the World Cup 2018 having kicked off in Russia, it would be rude not to link a Mortgage blog to football in some shape or form!

Football may be known as the beautiful game, but the amount of money thrown around across domestic clubs at home and abroad has arguably spoilt the game that is known in Britain as the working man’s game.

When you take wages into account, at one end the sport you’ve got Premiership footballers earning millions in a matter of minutes and at the other, lower league clubs potentially reliant on survival through current sponsorship and fan’s spending power.

After all, why would a professional footballer worry too much about their mortgage spending? Hypothetically they could buy a whole street without feeling much of a dent in their wallet – but what about the rest of us – those who are considered the norm?

While it’s no surprise that the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar probably won’t be submitting a mortgage application anytime soon after their World Cup commitments, professional sportspeople are essentially self-employed with complex incomes.

Nonetheless, an athletes professional career can be a short lived journey, whether it be on a football or Rugby pitch, to a boxing ring or tennis court. Upon retirement, some may choose to head into a media role as TV and radio pundits, earning good salaries long after their playing career comes to an end.

Perhaps the best sporting chance that borrowers with financial complexities have to secure funds will soon be found in the specialist market.

In addition, to lend successfully in the current lenders you will need to be pragmatic, understand the profile of the borrower and the risk involved. If that means adapting to the world as it is now, then so be it.

A one size mortgage for all obviously doesn’t work, but neither does excluding borrowers who have complex, but nonetheless valid incomes.
