How the mortgage calculator worksThe basic information required to calculate a mortgage is the purchase price of the property, the available deposit and the gross annual household income. These figures are are used to calculate affordability and the loan-to-value ratio, which are important to lenders and provide an indication of your creditworthiness. However, as these figures alone do not tell us much about the monthly costs involved, you can enter your desired or expected interest rate in step 2. This will give you a better idea of the costs that may be incurred.
What do the terms “affordability” and “loan-to-value ratio” mean?Affordability provides an indication of whether you can afford your chosen home in the long term, including during periods when interest rates are high. If the affordability value is low, you have a good chance of being offered an attractive interest rate. If your affordability is greater than 33%, it will be very difficult to find a lender and you will need to consider ways in which you can improve your affordability.
The loan-to-value ratio describes the proportion of the amount you are borrowing and your deposit to the purchase price. Note that most lenders offer a loan-to-value ratio of no greater than 80%, which means you will need to provide a deposit of at least 20%. If the loan-to-value ratio is 65% or more, a second mortgage is usually taken out, generally at a higher interest rate.
