Freelance Party Broadcast has had a makeover, and is now called Freelance Corner. That's because this podcast was launched by the online platform for the UK's freelancers with the same name: Freelance Corner. Hosts Faye and Jess quiz experts every fortnight, with the aim of answering a question sent in by our listeners. Is there a question you would like us to answer? Email content@freelancecorner.co.uk to have your question answered.

Faye and Jess are joined by CMME's head of mortgages Simon Butler, who answers questions about how to get a mortgage as a freelancer. Simon covers everything, from how to save for a deposit with a fluctuating income, Stamp Duty savings, and the documentation you need to apply for a mortgage.

Simon also answered questions from listeners, including how to meet the affordability criteria as a freelancer, if it's harder to get a mortgage as a freelancer, and what to do if you currently have no savings.
