Income & Monthly Repayments For A £350k Mortgage

One of the first questions when looking to buy a new property, or remortgage, is to work out what you can afford - and how much you're likely to be able to borrow.

In many cases, clients have been rejected for a mortgage by their bank. That could be for any number of reasons such as having bad credit, or not passing the affordability assessments.

This guide will explain how a lender will assess an application for a £350,000 mortgage, and what criteria will impact your likelihood of approval. For more information, or to get started with your application, give the Revolution Brokers team a call on 0330 304 3040, or email us at [email protected].

What Salary Do I Need to Be Eligible for a Mortgage of £350,000?

The mortgage you might be approved for depends on the lender - since each provider will use a different calculation basis to arrive at a maximum, they can lend.

Generally speaking, most applicants approved for a mortgage of £350,000 have an income of around £55,000 to £60,000 - which could be one salary or a combined income of joint applications.

Below you will see an illustration of what four different lenders might offer in terms of a maximum mortgage to the same applicants at different salary levels, depending on the multiple they can offer depending on your circumstances.

What Factors Impact How a Lender Will Calculate My Mortgage Limit?

Every lender has a different set of policies, and will consider your circumstances to decide what multiple of your income they can offer:

  • Your employment - generally, PAYE employment is included at 100%. However, if you're self-employed or have a variable income such as bonuses, each lender will include a different proportion of this income in their assessment.
  • Declarable income also depends on the lender. Some will ask for things like regular overtime, benefits, freelance income or rental income, all of which are added to your annual earnings before the mortgage cap is calculated.
  • Your experience - the longer you have been in a role, the more stable the job. Newly employed applicants are often asked for a contract to demonstrate that the income will be long-term.
  • Lending policies also make a difference, as they may use very different systems to calculate your net disposable income to work out if they believe you can afford the repayments. Most lenders will cap your mortgage value at four or five times your salary, although you can borrow as much as six times your earnings in the right circumstances.

What Annual Income is Required for a £350,000 Buy to Let Mortgage?

Income assessments work differently on buy to let mortgages - some lenders require applicants to have a minimum yearly income of £25,000, whereas others have no threshold.

The more critical factor is how much rental income the investment property is expected to generate. Usually, this needs to be at least 25% and up to 45% above the monthly interest-only mortgage costs.

What Eligibility Factors Impact my Approval for a £350,000 Mortgage?

Your income is one of several eligibility criteria - lenders will also assess:

  • Expenses - such as other debts, loans, dependents or regular costs to offset against your income and arrive at a disposable earnings figure.
  • Deposit - the higher the deposit, the less risky the application, and the more generous a lender can be with their affordability calculations.
  • Mortgage term - a longer-term means lower monthly repayments, although you will pay more interest overall.
