The school summer holidays offers the perfect opportunity to trawl the internet, visit local estate agents and start viewing properties if you are hoping to move during the summer holidays.
One of the questions that we are asked time and time again by supply teachers is ‘will I be able to secure a mortgage?’ The answer is yes!
As a supply teacher, you can borrow based on your teaching contract rather than your umbrella payslips. This means that you can often borrow more and at the same rates that permanent teachers can secure at their local branch.
Will supply teachers be eligible for a mortgage?
The most important role performed by an umbrella company, such as Genie Education, is to employ supply teachers. In addition to being able to claim for expenses were you aware through becoming an employee of Genie Education this then grants access to an extensive list of other benefits too?
"I’ve been working for an umbrella company as a contractor for a big company. This company agreed that motoring/travel expenses would be paid at cost. So every week I received car parking and road toll monies, plus fuel allowance at £0.15p a mile.
