Find a suitable £200,000 mortgage deal

It’s no secret that in general property prices have been on the rise for many years and for many buyers to get the property they want they need to apply for a large mortgage. If you are looking at getting a £200,000 mortgage there are some key pieces of information you may need, and questions answered. At Finance Advice Centre our expert advisers can answer any queries you might have and help you find suitable deals on any type of mortgage.

How much income do you need to qualify for a £200,000 mortgage?

£200,000 is a significant amount of money to have as a mortgage and affordability based on your income and outgoing will be a major factor in deciding how much lenders will be willing to lend to you. Some lenders will cap the amount you can borrow based on x4.5 your salary others can go up to x5 and potentially x6 in the right circumstances. As a rough estimate, two applicants for a £200,000 mortgage would need a combined salary of between £33,000 and £50,000, but this does not include other variables lenders look at when assessing affordability, such as how much deposit you have and your credit rating.

Will bad credit affect how much deposit you need for a £200,000 mortgage?

Unfortunately, bad credit can have an impact on how much deposit you will need for a £200,000 mortgage, but it doesn’t have to be a deal breaker. A history of bad credit means that lenders will perceive you as a higher risk, and the worse your credit the greater the risk, which can often mean paying a higher deposit and having poorer rates. Keep in mind though that no two providers are the same and they will handle the issue differently. Therefore, each could offer you different rates and ask for different deposit sizes for a £200,000 mortgage payment.

In general, some issues related to credit are seen as lower risk by lenders. For instance, if you have a low credit score and a few late payments recorded, there are a lot of lenders that will offer you a higher loan to value ratio (LTV) and a better rate. However, if you have something more serious like a recent bankruptcy or repossession the majority of lenders will be much more cautious, asking for a higher deposit and giving you an increased rate of interest on your loan.

There are providers who will work on a ‘case-by-case’ basis when it comes to offering mortgages. You might have to submit a written document about the circumstances of your bad credit in order for the provider to make a full assessment and your application could have to go through an additional underwriting evaluation. So, having bad credit won’t make it impossible for you to get a £200,000 mortgage. Speak to one of our advisers now to see what deals are available to you.

Can you get an interest-only £200,000 mortgage?

In short, yes, and there is a considerable number of them available on the market, but lenders will want to see a viable ‘repayment strategy’ before offering you the money. A repayment strategy is a pretty much a written plan that demonstrates how you will be able to repay the full balance of the mortgage at the end of the term. This is because in an interest-only mortgage your monthly payments only meet the interest on the loan, the capital will be due at the end of the term in one large sum.

The criteria for an interest-only mortgage are slightly different than a standard mortgage. It is more likely that you will be asked to put down a larger deposit. Also, the majority of lenders will only offer 75% LTV, although a small number will offer 80% and some could even go up to 85% if the circumstances are right.

What other factors can affect your £200,000 mortgage application?

There are quite a few factors a lender will look at when considering you for a mortgage. These include:

  • Age – upper age limits are not massively uncommon, some providers won’t offer a loan to anyone over 75, others have a cap at 85. There are providers that don’t mind how old you are as long as you can provide concrete evidence that you can make your repayments during retirement.
  • Expenses – under the government’s recent Mortgage Market Review, your expenses are now examined much more thoroughly than before, almost in as much detail as your income. This means that any expensive outgoings could decrease your chances of a successful application.
  • The type of property you want to buy – some lenders are cautious about properties that are referred to as “non-standard” construction. Examples of this include houses with timber frames or thatched roofs. There are providers that won’t lend money for such an unusual property and some will have stricter terms such as paying a higher deposit and increased interest rates.

As a mortgage is secured against your property, it may be repossessed if you do not keep up the mortgage repayments.
