Do I qualify for a Spanish mortgage?
To qualify for a mortgage in Spain, including the Canary and Balearic islands, a calculation is used to establish whether you can afford to maintain the mortgage repayments. This will automatically happen when you complete the application form, and Mortgage Helpline International won’t charge you for this service.
How much can I borrow?
Calculation based on the valuation or purchase price, whichever is the lower.
Up to 70% of LTV available for house purchase, Re-Mortgage or Equity Release for all purposes.
Based on joint net “take home” pay, where joint income is applicable.
Existing liabilities, e.g. mortgage or rental payments, loans, credit card payments and maintenance are taken into account, together with the proposed Spanish mortgage payments. All this must not typically exceed 40% of your monthly net income.
What evidence of income do I need?
If you are employed:
Your last three month’s payslips
Your latest P60 and/or Employers Reference
Your last six month’s personal bank statements
YOU WILL NEED TO OBTAIN A FULL CREDIT REPORT FROM EQUIFAX OR EXPERIAN FOR MOST SPANISH LENDERS.
If you are self-employed:
Your last two year’s audited accounts & last two years tax returns.
Your last 3 month’s personal bank statements.
Example mortgage payments
If, for example, your net joint monthly income is £2,500, 40% of this equates to £1,000. If your only liability is your current UK mortgage payment, of say £300 per month, this would leave a balance of £700 for your Spanish mortgage repayment.
