There are a number of factors that can affect remortgage calculations.
It’s a cliché, but location, location, location holds true, especially as in many instances, the land is often more valuable than the home that sits on it.
The closer the property is to amenities such as shops, schools, restaurants and transport links, the more ‘sellable’ the property is, which means lenders are more likely to get a return on their investment if things go wrong.
Other factors to consider would be, is the property –
All of these factors can affect a remortgage and will not be taken into account by a remortgage calculator in the UK, so you will need to speak to a broker who is an expert in this area, like the ones we work with.
Equity release is a little more complicated than a straight remortgage. It all depends on how much equity you have in your many factors that a calculator may not be able to take into account, such as –
Most lenders will allow you to borrow up to 50% of your home’s value, and you can release the equity as either a lump sum or regular payments.
Either way, you should talk with one of the expert advisors we work with for the right advice, or check out our article on equity release calculators here.
Simply put, LTV or Loan to Value, is the difference between the value of the property and the size of your mortgage.
Here are some examples –
|Purchase Price||Deposit||Mortgage||Loan to Value (LTV)|
The above table is for comparative purposes only. You should talk to your lender or broker for the most up-to-date information for your circumstances
When it comes to working out your loan to value (LTV) for the purposes of remortgaging, divide your outstanding mortgage amount by your properties value and then multiply by 100.
So if you have a £150,000 mortgage on a property worth £250,000, your LTV would be 60%.

Some types of buy to let mortgages are not regulated by the FCA. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. As a mortgage is secured against your home, it may be repossessed if you do not keep up with repayments on your mortgage. Equity released from your home will also be secured against it.
