Mortgage Values Costing £1,000 a Month

What maximum mortgage value can you afford if you have the financial means to repay £1,000 a month? Here Revolution Brokers reverse engineer mortgage standards to help you work out how much you can borrow.

About your mortgage

Error: Yearly income income must be between £1 and £10,000,000.

Error: Regular bonus must be between £1 and £10,000,000.

Based on your yearly income, you may be able to borrow:


Most lenders will let you borrow 4.5 times your annual salary so, as long as you have a standard 10% deposit, you should be able to borrow this much.


Depending on your personal circumstances, some lenders may let you borrow 5 times your salary.


Lenders usually cap the amount they lend at 5.5 times your salary, so it’s unlikely you’ll be able to borrow more than this.

This calculator is an estimation of how much you could borrow. If you’re ready to take out a mortgage, speak to a Revolution brokers to see what options are available.

What Sort of UK Mortgage is Available for £1,000 a Month?

Having a budget in mind is a great starting point when looking for a mortgage! The amount you qualify for will depend on your income and other factors. Still, if you know what you can afford, then it's likely you have already calculated your net disposable income and are prepared for an affordability assessment.

Lenders will look at lots of factors before they can offer to lend, including:

  • What deposit you have available.
  • How much the property is worth, and what Loan to Value ratio you want to borrow.
  • The length of the mortgage term.
  • Your age and credit rating.

Each of these factors is assessed for a risk factor, and so the less risky the application, the lower the interest rates available and the larger a mortgage you are likely to be able to apply for.


Scenario One - you have a £5,000 deposit, clean credit rating, and an affordability assessment confirms that you can comfortably afford a repayment of £1,000 a month.

Your mortgage limit is set at £195,000 - £200,000, and you can afford a mortgage at an approximate rate of 3.5% over a standard 25-year term.

Scenario Two - you do not have a deposit, don't have a great credit history but can afford the £1,000 monthly repayment figure.

In this scenario, you might be offered a mortgage capped at £175,000, and be quoted a 5% interest rate averaged out over the 25 years.

What is the Maximum I Can Borrow on a £1,000 a Month Mortgage?

The maximum you can borrow depends on the assessment, and the policies of the lender. Lenders use an income calculation based on a multiplication of your annual income, which usually determines the maximum you can apply for.

Other factors also matter, such as buying an affordable property with a stable £1,000 per month budget is a safer prospect than purchasing a higher-priced home that you can just afford on your budget.

If your application is higher risk, the interest rates you will be quoted are likely to be higher - which therefore means the monthly cost will be more significant, and the mortgage you can afford will be lower.

The best option in any scenario is to seek support from an experienced independent broker who can recommend the best borrowing products and the most likely lenders who will be able to offer the loan you need.

If you have a budget of £1,000 a month and a 50% deposit, you're likely to be able to borrow somewhere around £400,000.

If you have a small deposit, even on a repayment of £1,000 a month, you're unlikely to be able to borrow more than £175,000.

What Mortgage Term am I Looking at for a Budget of £1,000 a Month?

The standard mortgage term is 25 years, but you can apply for shorter or longer terms, depending on how that fits in with your budget.

  • 30-year mortgages are available and can mean lowering the monthly cost. However, if you are closer to retirement age, a lender might not be willing to offer a longer-term.
  • Shorter mortgage terms are also available and can mean repaying a loan faster if the property's value and the rates on offer allow you to do so within your budget.

How are Monthly Mortgage Payments Calculated?

The same £1,000 budget might look very different depending on which lender you apply to. Each lender will look at factors such as:

  • Your income and outgoings.
  • Your debt.
  • Deposit and Loan to Value.
  • Your age.

All of these factors will influence what interest rates they can offer. A lender also needs to check that you can afford to keep up with the monthly repayments - and even if you are sure you have the right budget to pay back £1,000 a month, your lender will still need to assess this independently to confirm if they agree.

Other factors include the Bank of England base rate, which lenders use to calculate their interest rates against.

When rates are low, you can afford a larger mortgage given that the interest cost will be smaller. However, when rates rise, you will need to cover a higher interest element per month, meaning your £1,000 a month won't stretch as far.

Can I Get a £1,000 a Month Mortgage With a Bad Credit Rating?

You can get a mortgage with bad credit - although in some cases it is advisable to apply to a specialist bad credit lender depending on the scenario.

The same £1,000 a month will look different depending on how much you want to borrow, how secure that investment is (i.e. what the LTV ratio looks like) and what sort of interest rates a lender can offer you.
