How many times your salary can you borrow?

It’s possible to borrow between 4-4.5 times your salary, though this varies from lender-to-lender. Some mortgage lenders use income multiples to work out the maximum amount they could lend you, while others prefer to make an assessment based on your application.

Your overall affordability could be affected by other factors, including the amount of deposit you have, your credit rating, your outgoings, age and employment type.

Use our mortgage affordability calculator below to work out how much you could borrow based on typical income multiples…

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.

What’s the minimum loan amount you could borrow?

Many lenders set the bar at £25,000, though there are others who will lend smaller amounts.

If you’re looking to raise funds for a renovation, purchase a house at auction or if you wish to move into a more expensive property and need a small mortgage to bridge the gap, there may be other lending options available for you.

What deposit do I need for a £20,000 mortgage?

For a mortgage or loan this small, you may not be required to put down a deposit at all. Some lenders may class anything below £25,000 as a ‘personal loan’, so you wouldn’t be required to put down a deposit.

If you’re after a small loan to raise funds in order to buy a more expensive house, lenders would take your property value into consideration.

How much will a £20,000 personal loan cost?

Personal loans are usually available up to £25,000 with a maximum 7 year term, on varying rates from as low as 5% up to 50% depending on your credit score.

How much will a £20,000 secured loan cost?

Secured loans tend to have higher repayment rates than mortgages, but still competitive when compared to some of the higher rate personal loans. A personal loan may be favourable for those who have lower credit scores and equity in their homes, because the risk to a lender is lower so the rates tend to be much more affordable.
