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.

Is a Professional Mortgage the Most Viable Borrowing Option?

The right lending for your property purchase will depend on your circumstances, but often professional mortgages offer more competitive rates, fees, and an expedited application process.

For detailed advice about the most suitable mortgages for your professional or income level, contact Revolution on 0330 304 3040.

Some of the advantages of applying for a professional mortgage include:

  • Lower risk analysis and therefore, less rigorous qualification criteria.
  • Exclusive product ranges for professional applicants.
  • Greater discretion with underwriting in unusual circumstances.
  • More options for newly employed professionals.

The key differences between a standard residential mortgage and a professional mortgage are:

  • More Competitive Lending: A lower-risk application means lower interest rates, and sometimes discounted fee structures.
  • Lower Deposit Requirements: Given the reduced risk profile, a lender can offer up to 90% LTV, with lower deposit requirements for professional applicants.
  • Greater Maximum Lending Flexibility: Most lenders will offer up to five times annual income as an absolute maximum to a standard applicant. For a professional mortgage, lenders can often be more flexible, with higher multiples offered to applicants earning over £100,000 per annum.
  • Generous Facilities: Professional mortgages often provide more flexibility, such as being able to overpay without a penalty. The typical allowance for overpayments is around 10%, with many professional mortgages increasing this to 20%.
  • Borrow Back Options. As with more options to overpay, and reduce your mortgage interest expenses, professionals can sometimes find mortgages with flexible borrow back allowances, allowing you to release capital to take advantage of other investment opportunities.
  • Repayment Options: Mortgage holidays are not unheard of and provided you have repaid a particular value, you can take a break from mortgage repayments to allow you to invest capital in other projects, or temporarily reduce your outgoings.
  • Better Self-Employed Mortgage Terms: Self-employed professionals have a greater chance of negotiating a competitive mortgage, with lenders accepting as little as one year of trading history, as well as considering applicants with adverse credit issues.

Mortgage lenders find professional applicants more appealing, and so you will usually expect to receive more personal attention, sometimes with a direct mortgage account manager to ensure the application precedes smoothly.

Why is it Easier to Get a Mortgage as a Professional?

Lenders all work around risk. Professionals are lower risk since there is less chance they will face employment issues, and usually, their career path provides the anticipation of growing income streams over time.

Revolution Brokers works with mainstream lenders and very specialist providers who only offer professional mortgage products, with extremely competitive rates and terms.
