    Who gives a 5 times salary mortgage? 8th Aug 06 at 11:58 AM
    My other half and I are looking to move soon. At a developers' recently we were told that some mortgage providers give a mortgage of 5 x salary. Does anyone know the criteria for this? My partner earns more than me and with a joint mortgage we could comfortably afford the house we want. However his credit rating is not great and we'd be better off keeping our credit records separate. If I'm given 5 x my salary we can avoid a joint mortgage.

    Has anyone been given this?
