One of the most stressful parts of home ownership is arranging the right mortgage. With 1000's to choose from, we can ensure the process is simple and straightforward.
How much can I borrow?
There is no point in finding your ideal home or planning an extension on your current property only to find that it is beyond your financial reach. In the past, lenders traditionally calculated the amount you could borrow as a multiple of your salary. So, you might typically have been granted a mortgage of four times your gross annual earnings. Nowadays all banks and building societies lend funds according to affordability and will ask for details of your income and outgoings before they decide on a figure. They will also consider the impact of future interest rate rises.

Help to Buy – New Build only
If you are eligible for the Help to Buy scheme some banks and building societies will only require you to put down a 5% deposit. If not, you will generally require a minimum deposit of 15% for a new build house and 20% for a new build flat. The larger the deposit you have, the better the interest rates available to you will be.
