In your current position.

Clearly there needs to be some element of fantasy eg the house I would love is probably in Wales or Scotland but then I would earn 20p a year

So the house can be anywhere
but you would have to be able to raise the mortgage on it in your current circs

how much do they lend now (income multiples) is something crazy like 5 x both is is not?

CountessDracula Wed 26-Sep-07 13:11:48

oh and you can take into account existing equity if you have it of course

MintyDixCharrington Wed 26-Sep-07 13:15:57

CountessDracula Wed 26-Sep-07 13:17:46

tiredemma Wed 26-Sep-07 13:19:42

can I do it but with my estimated income once I qualify? ( otherwise I will just have to post a link of a shop doorway)

CountessDracula Wed 26-Sep-07 13:19:49

of course
the house can be anywhere
not where you live now

CountessDracula Wed 26-Sep-07 13:20:09

yes of course

Also you don't have to use it ALL
so can find something cheaper

MintyDixCharrington Wed 26-Sep-07 13:20:30

tiredemma Wed 26-Sep-07 13:20:43

MintyDixCharrington Wed 26-Sep-07 13:21:15
