How much can I afford to borrow?

Want to know how much you can afford to borrow for your mortgage? You're in the right place.

Basic affordability

In it's simplest terms, what you can borrow takes into account...

Loan to Value (LTV)

The value of the property you are buying/remortgaging versus how much deposit you have/the current mortgage balance.

Loan to Income (LTI)

How much you earn versus the loan amount requested.

If you're after a basic view of what you can borrow, check out our mortgage calculator below.

Detailed affordability

If you dig a little deeper, it can be a bit more complex than that and can be affected by things such as:

  • Credit history

  • Monthly expenditure (incl credit commitments)

  • Disposable income (how much money you have left at the end of each month after general commitments likes bills, shopping, etc)

  • The type of property and where it is

  • How much rent you'll get each month if it's a let

  • And so on

Every case is unique which is what makes Mojo so special.
