With the average house in Central London currently selling for £1,729,897 (Rightmove), it’s no surprise that there’s plenty of demand for mortgages of a million pounds or more. But how do you go about securing a large mortgage for your London property?
There are a number of challenges in getting mortgages of over a million pounds, simply due to the fact that the larger the mortgage, the bigger the risk to the lender. In order to borrow the amount you require, you will not just need to meet the income requirements but also the affordability criteria and LTV which can be more challenging with larger values.
Finding the Right Lender For You
The key is having the correct knowledge when it comes to which lenders will be suitable for the amount of borrowing you require and your personal financial requirements. All lenders are different, for example, some will lend 4 or 5 times your income, whereas others may be more flexible and consider discretionary payments which may enable you borrow a lot more. Lenders will have a maximum amount they will lend on a high LTV mortgage, for example some will only lend up to £700,000 on a 90% LTV, however others may lend more.
Lenders criteria can vary greatly and The Mortgage Hut can find a mortgage deal which suits your personal circumstances, giving you have the best chance of achieving that million pound mortgage for your London home.
