    190,000 mortgage... 12th Jul 17 at 10:43 AM
    Would anyone be able to guide me to a website that could advise on affordability?


    Background, we have seen a house for 240k, we have 60k of equity in our house if we sell for 185k, which is very realistic, so around 25% deposit (for a re-mortgage)


    Our household income net is 2400 a month, no debt, no credit cards etc, any ideas where I could see what companies would lend?


    Thanks for reading.

    What is your gross yearly income? You can get roughly 4.5 times that assuming you have good credit.

    Also remember to budget for solictors fees, surveys, stamp duty, etc.

    (assuming you are both basic rate taxpayers, no student loans, I make 2,400 net as equivalent to approx 32,000 gross (for both of you combined), which means you could probably borrow up to 144k - so you'd be short about 50k)

    Use lender online affordability calculators which use gross annual basic salary and gross annual variable earnings, usually restricting the latter to 50%.

    Enter credit commitments, childcare costs, ground rent and service charges and other items requested as accurately as possible. Most lenders ignore anything being repaid on or before completion.
