How much can I borrow ?

What Is Mortgage Affordability?

We’re often asked “can I borrow 5x my income for a mortgage” or “should I just multiply our joint incomes by 4?” Whilst income multiples exist in the background that lenders won’t exceed, it isn’t the sole driver of the amount you can borrow. The amount of money you can borrow on a mortgage is dependent on a number of things covered below.

1. The amount & frequency of your income – are you salaried or paid weekly? Do you earn overtime or receive bonuses or commissions & are they monthly, quarterly or annually, are you self employed and submit accounts at the end of the year or are you a limited company director and receive dividends?

2. The amount of credit commitments you have; so that’s debts such as loans, credit cards, car finance, store cards etc. Are these debts staying or being paid off before you buy the home, and if they’re being paid off how will it be paid – mortgage lenders will often check that the debt has been paid off before completion by doing a final credit check if you say you will pay it off.

3. How many children, if any, do you have – it often costs a lot of money to have children & lenders make an assumption about that cost based on national statistics. We also might have to take into account the costs of childcare and nursery for example as well.

4. Any other income you receive – eg some people get child benefit, some have working tax, or child tax credit. Some people receive personal independence payments, there may be CSA or maintenance payments paid monthly to support a child – all of these can be taken into account in various combinations.

5. Your age & how long you can take the mortgage over in combination with your retirement plans. The longer you can stretch a mortgage, often the more you can borrow as the payment will likely be lower and therefore more affordable, however the longer the mortgage the more interest in total is payable so it’s a double edged sword!

As Mansfield’s top rated award winning mortgage & protection brokerage our job is to look at all the above points & then to work out what your borrowing capacity is & what will be affordable – now sometimes this isn’t what a client wants to hear, nevertheless we have a duty of care to make sure you’re not stretching things financially. This can sometimes be a difficult discussion as a client can sometimes desperately want to buy a house & is adamant they can afford it, but as advisers we have to be cautious & look at what might happen in the future & determine that, if things change with interest rates would it remain affordable at that point because we never want to see a client in financial difficulty.

You see, there’s more to it than at first meets the eye, and it’s actually a very big financial decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly – which is why it always pays to have a chat with someone that knows what they’re on about.

We are independent mortgage brokers covering Mansfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield & Chesterfield. If you need a mortgage broker in Mansfield, mortgage broker in Sutton-in-Ashfield or mortgage broker in Chesterfield we’re here to help.

What insurance do I need for a mortgage?

Mortgage payment protection insurance will cover your mortgage payments for up to two years if you lose your job, have an illness or get into an accident. You can also get life insurance, insurance for the building and insurance for the contents within your home.

What costs are there when buying a property?

Mortgage broker fee’s- Get in touch with us to find out more.

How much deposit do you need as a first time buyer?

This depends on quite a lot of variables but the minimum deposit you will need is 5% of the purchase price of a home. To get a 5% deposit mortgage you have to have excellent credit conduct for the last 6 years,

This means you can’t have any late or missed payments, defaults, CCJ’s or insolvencies to your name. You need to be registered on the electoral roll, ideally not have more than 25% of your gross annual income as debt and be in a stable job or have been self employed for at least 2 years.

Now that doesn’t apply in all cases but it covers most. Of course the more deposit you can save the better deals you’ll be eligible for and the quicker and easier it will to get your mortgage approved.

If you do have bad credit this doesn’t mean that you can’t buy a home, it just means you’ll probably need a bit bigger deposit. The size of deposit you’ll need will depend upon the type and recency of when the adverse credit was registered and if it’s now been satisfied and paid back along with being able to demonstrate good credit conduct elsewhere on your credit report.

As a rule of thumb if the adverse credit was over 2 years ago then you will need between a 10%-15% deposit, however we would always recommend getting mortgage advice before you start house hunting so that we can make sure that we can get you the mortgage you will need to avoid any possible disappointment.

Can I pay my mortgage off early?

Yes. If you’ve only had your mortgage for a short period of time, you may have to pay early repayment charges.

Can I make over payments on my mortgage to pay it off sooner?

Yes, but the amount you can overpay depends on what your lenders allow. Most lenders allow up to 10% of the mortgage balance to be overpaid each year.

What is a buy to let mortgage?

A buy to let mortgage is when you buy a house for the purpose of renting the house out to tenants.

How much deposit do you need for a buy to let mortgage?
