We have recently sold our home and looking to buy again. We had pre approval arranged through a broker, through HSBC. my husband however has decided to accept a new job, given the current climate, and taken on a new job with more longevity than hus current role. It's the same role, same industry, even the same job site, will just be with a different employer, but with better pay/conditions and longer viability. I am at home with our 2 very small children, so its a 1 income situation for us at the moment. Question is, broker has advised us we won't qualify for another mortgage for atleast 3-6 months because of a job change. However I've had someone tell me some of the bigger will accept this scenario, given its the same industry etc. Can anyone please answer that for me?
