Typically speaking if you have £500 a month to spend on a mortgage and you have around a 20% deposit you could be looking at a mortgage that ranges from £75,000 to £120,000 dependent on your circumstances, interest rates and lender criteria.

What mortgage can I get for £500 a month in the UK?

We often get asked “what mortgage can I afford with £500 repayments per month?” Mortgage lenders access affordability using their own criteria which is explained below, but they will also make a decision based on how much deposit you put down.

The maximum amount of loan that’s available to you is calculated to include factors like the following:

  • Personal income: How much do you earn, or what other income do you receive?

Your lender will also consider the LTV (loan to value rate) to determine how much you can borrow in relation to what the value of the property that you want to buy is.

The maximum amount you’ll be offered will vary between providers which is why it’s important to get quotes or speak to a mortgage broker who can assist you with this. We can help you find one, simply make an enquiry and we’ll connect you to one of the experts that we work with.

What factors could affect what I get for a mortgage that’s £500 a month?

As well as your employment status and income, mortgage providers take the following into account which will impact on the amount of loan they offer you. These include:

Age: Often the younger you are the better the mortgage you’re offered as you have a long working life left to make repayments. If you’re close to retirement you’ll need to prove you can afford to pay back the loan.

Credit rating: A bad credit score can mean you have difficulties getting a mortgage approved or that you’re offered unfavourable rates. Find out more about bad credit mortgages.

What length of mortgage can I get for a £500 a month mortgage?

Typically the average length of a mortgage is 25 years, but this is a discussion you’ll need to have with your mortgage broker or provider. They need to be confident that you can afford to pay back any loan, whether that’s for a shorter or longer period of time.

What interest rates would I pay on a £500 per month mortgage?

This will vary according to the amount of loan that’s approved. The larger your deposit, the lower your interest rate should be. However lenders will take your personal circumstances into account and if you have a history of bad credit, they may charge higher interest rates.
