It is possible sometimes for a mortgage to be offered to a specific type of buyer or a limit put on the mortgage amount. In all cases, though, mortgages will be subject to a maximum Loan to Value, known as LTV. You may well ask: what is that? LTV is all about how much mortgage you have in relation to how much your property is worth. It’s normally a percentage figure that reflects the percentage of your property that is mortgaged, and the amount that is yours (the amount you own is usually called your equity). To find a mortgage that is right for you, it will be necessary to calculate your LTV. You can find it by using our mortgage calculator.
You also need to consider the different types of mortgage – fixed rate, tracker or discount – and we will explain them all to you in a way that you can easily understand. There are additional costs, such as set-up fees to take into account; you have to decide on the mortgage term; whether you want repayment or interest only.
