What Salary Do I Need to Qualify for a £300,000 Mortgage?

There isn't a fixed amount you need to earn to be eligible for a £300,000 mortgage, since every lender uses different calculations and criteria.

For example, if you earn a variable income, you might find that one lender includes 50% of all overtime, bonuses and commissions - but that another will only consider your primary salary.

Other factors also apply, such as how a lender assesses your other debts and outgoings. Most UK lenders will offer a cap of somewhere around four to five times your annual income - but others can offer as high as six times, depending on how closely you meet their terms.

The below table summarises the maximum mortgage you might be offered by three lenders, each with a different income multiplier policy:


Lender A - 4.5 x Income

Lender B - 5 x Income

Lender C - 6 x Income













































How Much Deposit Do I Need to Be Approved for a £300,000 Mortgage?

Your deposit will determine what sort of rates you are likely to be offered, as well as your likelihood of being approved for a £300,000 mortgage.

The higher the deposit, the lower the risk, and the better the rates on offer. Higher Loan to Value mortgages are becoming more widely available, with LTVs as high as 90% or even 95% in the right circumstances.

Can I Get a £300,000 Mortgage with Adverse Credit History?

Your eligibility for a £300,000 mortgage will depend on many factors, with credit history being something that every lender will need to check on.

Each lender will have different policies about what credit issues they consider acceptable. Whereas one provider might reject any applicant with anything but a clean credit record, a specialist bad credit lender might even be able to consider lending to those with serious issues such as a previous bankruptcy.

The key is always to consult an expert broker before making an application to ensure you know that your chosen lender will be able to approve your loan.

Can I Get a Mortgage of £300,000 if I am Nearing Retirement?

As with your credit history, age is a factor that can make your application higher risk and impact whether you meet the lender's criteria. Some lenders cap mortgages at specific ages and others have no cap at all.

More and more later life mortgages are coming onto the market, so being past retirement age or approaching retirement does not mean that you won't be eligible for a mortgage.

What are the Income Requirements for a Buy to Let Mortgage of £300,000?

In some cases, a buy to let lender will only accept applicants with an annual income of above £25,000 - but this is not specific to the application value.

The mortgage itself will depend on what sort of rental income your investment property is anticipated to achieve. Most lenders use a calculation to dictate the minimum mortgage payment cover that the rent needs to meet to be eligible.
