Do I qualify for a Portuguese mortgage?

To qualify for a mortgage in Portugal, a calculation is used to establish whether you can afford to maintain the mortgage repayments. Once you have completed our enquiry form, Mortgage Helpline International will be able to assess your suitability for a mortgage.

How much can I borrow?

The calculation is based on the valuation of the property and up to 70% of LTV available for house purchase, remortgage, construction loans or home improvements.
Based on joint gross & net monthly 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 Portuguese mortgage payments. All this must not exceed 35% of your monthly net income.

What evidence of income do I need?

If you are employed:

Your original last three month’s payslips

Your latest original P60 and Employers Reference

Your original last six month’s personal bank statements

If you are self-employed:

Your last 2-3 year’s audited accounts and tax returns

Your original last 3 month’s business bank statements

Your original last 3 month’s personal bank statements.

Example mortgage payments

If, for example, your net joint monthly income is £4,500, 35% of this equates to £1,575. If your only liability is your mortgage payment, of say £700, this would leave a balance of £875 for your Portuguese mortgage repayment.
