The following calculations have been made based on the information you have provided and on the assumption that your credit file is of sufficient standing to get a Mortgage. Our calculator will show you a range of your potential borrowing amounts; this is because the level of your outgoings and commitments will have an impact on the amount a mortgage lender may be willing to lend to you. If you have large outgoings and commitments, your borrowing potentially is likely to be at the lower end of the range; but you may not be able to get a Mortgage at all. In addition, if you are seeking to purchase a leasehold property, you will also need to factor in any ground rent and annual service charge costs. Lenders change criteria frequently and these figures are produced as a guideline only. To get a more accurate figure, please speak to a Mortgage Friends Advisor and they will happily be able to provide you with a tailored borrowing potential.
