Loan to value ratio
How much you will be able to borrow as a mortgage is likely to be influenced by a number of factors, including how much you earn.
Another important consideration is your loan to value (LTV) ratio. This shows how the amount you want to borrow relates to the market value of your property.
So, if you want to borrow £50,000 as a mortgage on a £100,000 house, your LTV would be 50%.
If you then wanted to take out a second charge mortgage for a further £25,000, this would make your LTV 75%.
The higher your LTV, the higher interest rates most lenders will tend to offer.
