What is your Investment income mortgage qualification?

  • You are receiving some form of investment income.
  • This may be in the form of stocks and shares, or other investments which are a non-primary source of income.
  • Primary income is your main source of earning income (employed / self-employed) and secondary income is any investment revenue additional to this.

How lenders assess mortgages with investment income

  • If your investment income is secondary income, some lenders will consider all your investment income, half your investment income, and some lenders none.
  • If investment income is your sole source of income, then lenders may be more reticent to lend as this type of income is seen as risky.
  • Therefore, it so important to seek advice from specialist investment income mortgage brokers.
  • Some lenders will want to see bank statements or accounts, or if investment income is your sole source of income you may need evidence from the investment Fund Managers.
  • Affordability criteria applies, and so qualifying for a mortgage with investment income is complex.
  • A consistent track record is important.
  • We work for you to present your case to the most suitable lender for a positive outcome.


For mortgages with investment income how much can I borrow?

  • The short answer is, about four and a half times your income.
  • But some lenders may offer as much as five and a half times your income.

Your Borrowing = 4.5 to 5.5 x your income

A simple example:


Half of Investment income assessed

Investment income = £100,000

Lender includes 50% = £50,000 x 4.5 = £2250,000


All of Investment income assessed

Investment income = £100,000 x 4.5 = £450,000

  • You can see that how much you are able to borrow with mortgages with investment income depends on the lender and how they assess your investment income.
  • Therefore, it is essential to talk to the right lender at the outset to ensure you get the right outcome.

  • Not all lenders take this view, but it is rarely a high street lender option.

Our key aims are to fully understand what you are looking to achieve, create a solution tailored to your needs, deliver results through an excellent service and build a relationship for life.

Your Investment income mortgage structure

One of the first things to consider is your repayment vehicle.

Do you want to opt for?

  • a repayment loan?
  • an interest only loan?
  • part & part which is a combination of the two?

What is a Repayment mortgage?

  • You make monthly payments and at the end of the term the loan is repaid.
  • With a repayment mortgage the monthly payments are higher but with less risk.

What is an Interest Only mortgage?

  • You simply pay the interest on the mortgage loan and look to pay off the loan later with say, the sale of property, investments, or bonuses.
  • With an interest-only mortgage the monthly repayments are lower but is assessed as higher risk.

Your mortgage product

You will also need to consider which type of mortgage product is best for you as this determines your monthly payments.

  • Fixed Rate Mortgage. Your repayments are set for 2,5, 10 years.
  • Variable mortgage. This is sometimes cheaper, but the rate can go up or down depending on the market and is often penalty free if you want to remortgage.

Rather than asking how much it will cost, consider how much can you afford. Your broker will then structure your mortgage appropriately, based on your risk profile.


What Investment income mortgage rates can I get?

  • The actual investment income mortgage interest rate you will be offered will be dependent on your personal circumstance and deposit level.
  • Therefore, think about how much you want to spend each month on your mortgage repayments.
  • We have access to a range of lenders in the market, and we have access to exclusive mortgage rates.

How much deposit do I need for an Investment income mortgage?

  • The long answer is that it is dependent on your circumstances: purchase price, income, and property type.
  • The short answer is – about 15%
  • Lenders consider you a low-risk buyer when you put down a 25% deposit or more.
