How much can you borrow for this amount?

The amount that you can borrow on your mortgage can vary depending on many factors, one of which is the interest rate.

The rate you are offered can vary depending on your own circumstances and sometimes the upfront interest offer can increase substantially after a set period.

However, if we were to assume, for example purposes, that a lender provides a fixed interest rate of 3.48% and that you could afford to pay £900 a month for 25 years, it may be possible to apply for a mortgage of up to £180,000.

The end figure that you would have paid off at the end of the term would equate to £269,869, which includes a mortgage debt of £180,000 plus the total interest, which would be £89,869.

To find out whether this is affordable for you, use our mortgage calculator below to work out how what your maximum borrowing is based on the typical income multiples lenders use…

Mortgage Affordability Calculator

Our affordability calculator can tell you how much you can potentially borrow from a mortgage lender. Simply enter your total household income below and our calculator will do the rest.

Input full salaries for all applicants

You could borrow up to 

Most lenders would consider letting you borrow

This is based on 4.5 times your household income, the standard calculation used by the majority of mortgage providers. To borrow more than this, you will need to use a mortgage broker to access specialist lenders.

Some lenders would consider letting you borrow

This is based on 5 times your household income, a salary multiple you might struggle to qualify for without the help of a broker. This income multiple is not widely available to customers who are applying directly with a lender.

A minority of lenders would consider letting you borrow

This is based on 6 times your household income, a salary multiple you will struggle to get without a broker. Six-times salary mortgages are usually only available under very specific circumstances.

Can you get a longer mortgage term for a £900 a month mortgage?

Although the standard mortgage term is 25 years, some borrowers prefer longer mortgage terms as this means that they may be able to apply for a larger loan.

For example, if you were to pay £896 a month, with a fixed interest rate of 3.48%, over the course of 30 years, you would be able to get a mortgage for £200,000.

The total interest over the course of the loan would be £122,661 meaning the overall figure that you would pay the lender would be £322,661.

By comparing these figures to those in the above section, we can see that by opting for a longer mortgage term, it could be possible to receive a higher loan.

That being said, the number of lenders that offer longer mortgage term agreements is limited but depending on your circumstances, it may still be possible.

What factors can affect my £900 per month mortgage?

Lots of people ask us whether they’ll be able to get a mortgage for £900 a month.

When deciding whether or not to lend to you a mortgage provider will need to look at your:

Lots of borrowers worry about this, especially if they have or have had issues with any of the above factors. Click the links in the list above for more information about how these variables can affect a mortgage application.

However, it’s important to remember that each lender will have a different set of criteria that they will use to conclude whether or not they can loan you, so just because you had a mortgage declined with one, it doesn’t necessarily mean they all will.

Which lenders are more likely to approve you?

The problem that many borrowers face is that it can be difficult to predict which lenders are more likely to approve an application. This is because each lender has varying criteria that they use to ascertain whether or not you are a risk.

This can make the application process frustrating for some, especially as each mortgage application can require upfront fees.

However, this is good news for borrowers too as it means that there could still be possible lenders who are happy to let them borrow, even if they have already been rejected by others for a mortgage.

For example, one lender may reject an applicant who is self-employed with limited income whilst another lender who specialises in mortgages for low income borrowers, may approve the mortgage.

Can a broker help me find a lender for my £900 a month mortgage?

Yes! Using their knowledge of your circumstances and the current market, they can highlight which lenders are more likely to accept your application, whilst filtering out those that aren’t worth your time.

How much mortgage can I get for £900 per month on my salary?

Although there are exceptions to this rule, most lenders will loan 4.5 x a borrower’s salary.

As an example, if you earned £45,000 a year, you could potentially borrow £202,500 for a mortgage. (Annual salary x 4.5 = loan amount)

If this were taken over a period of 25 years, with an interest rate of 2.43%, your monthly mortgage payments would equate to £900.

Could I borrow more on my income?

It may be possible to borrow more than 4.5 x you salary as there are some mortgage lenders who will consider lending 5 x the amount of annual salary or even higher.

You may find that higher lending is restricted to borrowers with higher salaries or impeccable credit history, so check with your mortgage broker before applying to avoid any wasted application fees.

Can I afford a £900 a month mortgage?

Many borrowers come to us after receiving poor advice about how much they can afford to borrow.

Misinformation and online mortgage calculators can lead many borrowers into thinking that they can afford to apply for a larger mortgage than they would be approved for.

To avoid mortgage rejections and for your own financial benefit, it is always important to calculate how much mortgage you can comfortably afford to borrow.

As well as your mortgage, remember that you will also have other outgoings which may include:

  • Utility bills
  • Food and living expenses
  • Council tax
  • Home and contents insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Any loans or credit cards you currently have
  • Moving fees
  • Solicitor fees

If you are unsure about whether a £900 per month mortgage is affordable for you, speak to a broker who can calculate your income versus your outgoings.
