Do I qualify for a mortgage in the USA?
To qualify for a mortgage in the USA, 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 75% of LTV available for house purchase, remortgage or home improvements.
Based on joint Gross monthly income, 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 American mortgage payments. All this must not exceed 38% of your monthly gross income. American lenders may take up to 70% of any proposed rental income into account with proof of leases
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
If you are self-employed:
Your last two year’s accounts & two years tax returns
Your last six month’s personal bank statements.
Example mortgage payments for US Dollar mortgage only:
If, for example, your gross joint monthly income is £2,500, 38% of this equates to £950. If your only liability is your mortgage payment, of say £300 per month, this would leave a balance of £650 for your American mortgage repayment.
Example mortgage payments for Sterling & other currency mortgages:
If, for example, your gross annual income is £100k per annum we will use 5 x £100k, minus any existing mortgage/other existing debts. For example, £100k per annum x 5 = £500k minus existing mortgage borrowing of £75k & no other existing debts, we could therefore lend £425k, subject to a maximum 70% LTV.
