How Do Lenders Calculate Borrowing Capacity?

Every lender has a unique set of policies which determine how they assess and calculate an individuals borrowing capacity. In general the principles are the same – lenders will look at your overall net income and then subtract any liabilities and declared living expenses to determine the excess cash flow available. From here the lender will use a variety of means to determine how much that excess cash flow can be used to support any new/further debt. Borrowing capacity calculations are very complex and require specific analysis from a financial professional. To find out your borrowing capacity speak to a mortgage broker who can provide you with accurate and up to date information.
