How much mortgage can I get for £1500 a month?

The amount you can borrow with a budget of £1,500 a month will vary depending on the following factors: 

  • Mortgage term
  • Interest rate
  • Repayment method
  • Your lender

Of the above, the length of the term you choose and the interest rate will likely have the largest influence over how much you can borrow with £1,500 per month to spend on monthly mortgage payments. 

Using a traditional repayment method, the table below offers a few different examples of how much mortgage you can get for £1,500 a month.

Interest RateTerm – 20 YearsTerm – 25 YearsTerm – 30 Years

(Amounts rounded to nearest thousand)

The interest rates and terms will vary from lender to lender, hence why the provider you choose may influence how much you can borrow.

In order to pass affordability checks with a mortgage lender you would need to be earning far more than £1,500 after tax each month.

Most lenders will use your annual income to work out how much they will be willing to lend you. The majority of lenders are happy to offer between 4-4.5 times your annual salary, though some will consider 5 times in other circumstances, or possibly even six.

If you have set yourself a budget of £1,500 a month and would like to know how much you could borrow for a mortgage get in touch and we can ask for an advisor we work with to discuss this in more detail with you. 

What kind of mortgage can I get for £1,500 a month? 

The type of mortgage you can get is less dependant on your budget and more upon your own specific requirements and circumstances. 

For example, if you had a budget of £1,500 per month and wanted to buy a property for your business a commercial mortgage would most likely suit your needs. Alternatively, if you were looking to buy a property with the specific intention of renting it out then a buy to let mortgage would be your best option. 

If you were looking for a mortgage to buy a house as your main residence and you have a budget of £1,500 a month then you have two repayment options: 

Both repayment methods would be available, however, choosing which one is most suitable would depend upon your own personal needs. This is where we can help. 

If you’d like to know more about the kind of mortgage you can get for £1,500 a month, make an enquiry with us. The advisors we work with deal with these types of enquiries all the time and can help you find the right type of mortgage that best suits your requirements. 

Will a mortgage calculator show me how much I can borrow for £1,500 a month? 

A mortgage calculator will certainly be able to give you an indication of how much you can borrow for £1,500 a month. However, the interest rate offers available will vary from lender to lender, therefore, the final choice you make may ultimately differ from the one you worked out on an online calculator. 

The advisors we work with adopt a ‘whole of market’ approach and will be aware of the best deals across the entire spectrum of mortgages available throughout the market, whether for business or personal requirements. 

If you get in touch, we can arrange for an expert to contact you and help you find the most appropriate mortgage for your £1,500 a month budget. 

Example: For a 30 year mortgage how much can I borrow with £1,500 per month? 

As outlined in the sections above the amount you can borrow will depend upon the kind of mortgage you are looking for, over what length of time and the interest rate a provider is prepared to offer. 

To give you a broad example, the table below provides an idea of how much you could borrow over 30 years based on a traditional repayment method using a range of different interest rates.

What other factors will influence how much I can borrow for a mortgage with £1500 a month? 

Setting yourself a budget, regardless of the amount, is the first sensible step towards attaining the right mortgage you need to complete the property purchase you desire. However, there are a number of other factors that lenders will take into account before they agree to lend you the amount you need. 

These factors include: 

Every lender will adopt their own internal criteria when assessing your application against all of the above factors. For example, if you’re self-employed, one lender may assess your business’ track record differently to another. 

The advisors we work with have a full understanding of how lenders view each of these points when considering your application. If you get in touch we can arrange for a specialist to contact you and discuss these points in more detail.
