Work Out Your Borrowing and Repayments

Understanding the amount you can borrow and your ongoing monthly financial commitment is a hugely important part of the mortgage application process. Your mortgage deposit will generally need to be at least 5% of the value of the property you are buying, though 100% mortgages are available from some lenders. Monthly repayments are based on the amount of borrowing, the interest rate and the term of the mortgage. 


How Much Can I Borrow?

Your Financial Status

Every bank or lender uses its own process to calculate how much a consumer can borrow but this is generally based on a few factors:

Income + Spending

Basically, the amount you earn and the amount you spend, including personal finance commitments such as loans and credit cards.

Amount of Deposit

A deposit of 10 -20% is generally considered the benchmark to secure a favourable mortgage deal and avoid other penalties.

Credit Rating

Credit rating can play a big part in the lender's decision. Higher credit scores, above the 850 mark, offer opportunities for better mortgage terms.

Your Lender

The amount you can borrow on a mortgage in the UK is typically 3 to 4.5 times your income, when calculated against your outgoings:

Joint Applications

Joint income mortgages are available for both married couples and partnerships. Tenancy agreements define the share in the ownership.

Bad Credit

For consumers that have previously experienced bad credit, there are still options to pursue though rates may be higher. 

Mortgage Decisions

We advise obtaining a mortgage in principle offer from a lender which is a good indication of your borrowing level before submitting a full mortgage application.
