In this article, you’ll learn what mortgage you might be able to get for £300 per month and how a broker can help make sure you get the right deal according to your circumstances.
What type of mortgage can you get for £300 per month?
Realistically, there are 2 potential mortgage types which might be available::
- Repayment mortgage: This is the standard type that sees your monthly payments cover the capital and interest. At the end of the term, your loan is fully paid off.
- Interest-only mortgage: These are less common but have lower monthly payments as you only pay the interest. They can be a good choice if you need a mortgage on a low income or face affordability issues. You will need a suitable repayment vehicle to clear the capital at the end of the loan term.
If you’re looking for a buy-to-let mortgage for approximately £300 per month, interest-only is usually your best bet as you could invest your rental income in your repayment vehicle.
The main factors which will affect how much you can borrow will be the size of your deposit, interest rate and the term of your mortgage. There will be other factors but these are the key drivers.

How much can you borrow with this budget?
There are a lot of factors which will determine how much you could borrow but to give some illustrations, the table below will give a mix of scenarios. It’s important to understand and highlight the difference the mortgage term and the interest rate will make (aside from your deposit which you’ll need to consider).
|Estimated monthly repayment||Interest rate||Mortgage term||Size of mortgage|
For the purpose of this table we are assuming the interest rate stays the same for the full length of the mortgage. Interest rates can change, if you decide to remortgage on to a different rate or move from either a fixed or discounted deal on to the lender’s standard variable rate (SVR).
How is affordability calculated?
Maximum mortgage borrowing is not based on the amount you have budgeted for monthly repayments;£300 per month. The majority of mortgage providers determine this based on a multiple of your annual salary.
Most lenders use income multiples to calculate your borrowing capacity. Typically, the maximum you can borrow is usually between 4.5 and 5 times your annual salary, although a minority of lenders might consider letting you borrow 6 times your income, under the right circumstances.
