Hi fish, I changed companies 3 months ago and was trying to get prequalified soon after. The BofA loan officer said I needed 3 months with the same employer. I just contacted her again about getting prequalified and now she said the lenders usually want to see 1 year with the same employer. I did take a 2 month work break this summer, but have a decent salary, down payment, and consistent work history and line of work. Should I look for a different loan officer?

[UK] I’m fortunate to not need my year end bonus (~£20k gross) for immediate use. I’m considering whether to A. Take it and invest it (e.g., ISA, S&P 500 tracker or similar, not too exotic), B. Sacrifice all of it to put in my pension, C. Spend it or D. A combination of the above. (NB: If I take it, I’ll lose ~50% of the bonus given my tax bracket; I’ve already ‘maxed’ my pension so firm won’t match any more that I put in the pot). What do you advise? Thanks in advance. Hard to know what’s best!
