This calculator reveals in under 20 seconds the maximum you can borrow for a re-mortgage based on the current rental income per month. The calculator shows the minimum rental income the lenders require based on your current mortgage.
The calculator also shows the maximum amount you can borrow which is limited to 75% of the property value and the minimum rental income the lenders require at this limit for you to remortgage the property.
The minimum rental income is stressed tested by lenders and assumes a higher interest cost than you would have with a mortgage deal. Typically, this would be 145% of a notional interest rate of 5.5% based on the amount of the loan.
Lenders may also require a background stress test on other buy-to-let properties in your portfolio and some may require you to earn a minimum income level.
