What is considered large mortgage loans?

While this will vary from every mortgage lender to another, most experts agree that a large mortgage is one worth £1 million or more. If you are borrowing this amount, specialist advice is strongly recommended. Not all mortgage providers can offer such a large mortgage, even if the repayments are affordable. A private bank or specialist broker would be required.

Large mortgage loans from private banks

The lenders that are most likely to approve mortgage applications for multi-million-pound and million-pound loans are not necessarily the biggest names on the high street.

Customers looking for large mortgages will often find the best rates and deals through private mortgage lenders, specialists mortgage providers and lenders that can only be contacted through a broker.

Are large mortgages harder to obtain?

Large mortgages are more difficult to obtain if you don’t meet the affordability requirements. Many mortgage lenders have a limit on the amount of mortgage they will offer. This is why people looking to buy multi-million-pound properties often find themselves in trouble.

A mortgage broker that specialises in large mortgages and high-net-worth borrowers is the best way to avoid lender caps. They are familiar with the needs of these customers and can recommend the right lender depending on how much they require.

If you approach a lender directly and are declined because of their maximum loan limit, it can damage your credit and make it difficult to get finance in the future. However, with the right broker, this can be avoided and you will find the right provider for your mortgage needs.

How to get a large loan

The same applies to large mortgages as to smaller loans. Your creditworthiness will be assessed by the lender to determine if you are able to repay the loan amount. The process doesn’t change if you have sufficient income or a deposit. Read about the mortgage application process in our standalone Guide and learn about mortgage eligibility.

The steps of the mortgage process don’t differ for large loans. However, it is important to get professional advice. There are fewer lenders who will approve deals over a certain amount. This means that you may be declined or have to settle for lower rates than if you had a mortgage of a few hundred thousand.

A mortgage broker that helps high-net-worth people get finance is a good place to start. They can give you personalised advice on your options, guide through the application process, and help you to find the right lender.

Large mortgages with high loan-to-value ratios

Lenders will limit mortgages to different levels depending on your loan-to-value ratio (LTV), and how much equity or deposit you have. The tiered structure means that applications with lower deposits (higher risk) are subject to stricter limitations. Those with a greater deposits (lower risks) can borrow much more.

One lender might limit the amount you can borrow to £500,000 in 90% LTV applications, £800,000.000 at 80% and a maximum £1,000,000 at 75% or lower. Lenders are willing to consider large mortgages exceeding £2million, depending on your financial situation. They will also consider a higher loan to value loans. A broker who specialises in large mortgages is your best bet to find a flexible lender.

Criteria for affordability

affordability is a key consideration when considering large mortgages. A lender will need to determine how much you can borrow based on your income and ensure that you are able to repay the loan.

Most mainstream mortgage deals limit income to 4.5x-5x for employees, net profits for sole traders or partnerships, and salary plus dividends if there is a reasonable income. Some lenders will allow higher-income clients to borrow more. They can also consider discretionary income for those with high incomes, which may result in a greater mortgage amount and, in some cases, up to x6 income.

You can, for example, find out the estimated monthly payments and interest rates on mortgages up to £1,000,000 on online mortgage calculators.

 

Directors of limited companies can get large mortgages

Limited companies may have difficulty finding a lender to finance large mortgages because they only consider income from earned salaries and dividends. Directors who decide to keep cash in their business but not withdraw it as personal income can have problems. This is because most lenders won’t consider net profit. It can be a problem for business owners who have their books drawn in a way that penalizes them, even though they are creditworthy.

There are specialist lenders that can assess the income of directors based on their salary and net profit. If funds are earned, but not left in the company, they can still go into the borrowing assessment. This could be a huge advantage if you’re trying to get a large mortgage. You will only be eligible for the amount that you need with all income considered.

Contact an appointed representative to make the process easy and have a bespoke approach to finding the best mortgage deal for you.

FAQ’S

Lenders or banks lend money with interest. The loan is secured against the property value. The loan agreement details are recorded against the title of the property, also known as a mortgage.

What’s LTV?

Lenders frequently refer to the LTV requirement. LTV stands for Loan to Value Ratio. LTV is an acronym that stands for Loan to Value Ratio. It refers to the ratio of a loan to property’s value. If you borrow £170,000 to buy a property worth £200,000, the LTV is 170,000/200,000. The remaining 15% is your equity.

Are you able to get a mortgage if you have a part-time job?

Lenders are generally more concerned about your overall income and financial situation than how many hours you work. It is possible to make more as a part-time worker than a full-time worker. Part-time employment should not be a problem if you can prove your income.

Is it possible to have two residential mortgages?

The cheapest mortgages are residential mortgages. There may be restrictions on how many residential mortgages you can get. Lenders will finance additional homes for personal or weekend use as long as you have the income to cover the monthly payments.
