Mortgage Income Multipliers

Mortgage Income Multipliers Explained

Income multiples are used by lenders as one calculation in determining how much they are prepared to lend on mortgage or remortgage. The most common multiples used is 3 times a single income or 2.5 times joint incomes, whichever gives the higher figure. More generous income multipliers are available from some mortgage lenders and these lenders will be more flexible if the loan to value is relatively low . In the example of Abbey your credit rating is used and may get you an income multiplier of 5 times your salary. The examples of income multipliers given below are a guide only.

Try Go Direct's mortgage budget planer to calculate how much you can afford for your new mortgage then once you have got an idea how much you can borrow using the income multiplier guide below use our mortgage calculators to see if the mortgage payments match you monthly mortgage budget.
