So when you apply for a mortgage, we’ll consider your income, debts and regular spending and your personal circumstances.

Can you borrow 5 times your salary?

Yes. While it’s true that most mortgage lenders cap the amount you can borrow based on 4.5 times your income, there are a smaller number of mortgage providers out there who are willing to stretch to five times your salary.
