Lenders may use various multipliers depending on their own preferences and whether someone is applying as an individual or part of a couple. Even in the latter scenario, you might find the lender takes the higher salary and multiplies that before adding the second income on top.

However, it is quite common to see multiples of between, three and three and a half times your salary, four and four and a half times’ your salary, even 5 times in some situations.

There are many factors that can determine how much you can borrow, such as income and existing loans and financial commitments.

Mortgage lenders have their own set of lending criteria, and each lender can be different. This means that if one lender rejects you, another might not. However, it’s best not to make too many applications at the same time.

That’s why it’s usually best to go through a mortgage advisor, such as Clever Mortgages who can assess your situation and then know which lender to apply to.

Generally, a lender will be looking at:

  • The amount you want to borrow
  • Your income and outgoings
  • How much deposit you have
  • The type of property you want to buy (certain properties such as flats above cafes and bars are deemed riskier to lenders)
  • Your employment status
  • Your credit rating
  • Your affordability
  • If you have had any pay day loans
  • Missed or late payments

If you have a poor credit history then you might struggle to get approval for a mortgage from certain mortgage lenders. As a specialist mortgage lender, we will still consider your mortgage application based on your affordability, regardless of your financial history.

The main difference with a bad credit mortgage is that your interest rate might be higher, so you might want to factor this in when using our tools. To get a better idea of what interest rates you’re eligible for, you can speak to one of our mortgage advisers for help and advice.

Stamp duty land tax – known in Scotland as land and buildings transaction tax – is a tax payment you have to pay when you buy a property or plot of land which costs more than a certain amount. The amount of stamp duty you pay depends on the type and price of property. It also varies when you buy a commercial building rather than a residential property.

  • No stamp duty tax on the value of the property up to £125,000 (Currently the price is capped at £250,000 until Oct 2021 then it reverts back to £150,000) See here for more details
  • 2% stamp duty on the property value between £125,001 and £245,000
  • 5% on the property value above £250,000
