How much can I borrow?

Work out how much you may be able to borrow based on your income and expenses. 

The amount you may be able to borrow is determined by your financial situation. This is largely made up of your income, your financial commitments, current savings and your credit history. You'll also need to consider your spending habits and any existing commitments such as personal or car loans, credit card debt, even travel expenses.

 

The calculator only provides an approximate guide as to your maximum borrowing power and should not be used as an indication on how much you will be able to borrow from a specific lender: Other factors may also be relevant such as geographic location, type of property or internal risk settings by the relevant lender. When considering your maximum borrowing amount, you should also plan ahead for any future interest rate rises. This calculator is not intended to be your sole source of information when making a financial decision. You may wish to consider getting advice from a licensed finance professional. The calculator assumes that interest rates do not change throughout the loan.

Fees and charges are payable. The calculations do not take into account fees, charges or other amounts that may be charged to your loan (such as establishment or monthly service fees or stamp duty). If you are borrowing more than 80% of the value of the property, Lenders Mortgage Insurance may apply. Any of these additional amounts will increase repayments under the loan and will affect your borrowing power.

Calculations are not a loan approval. Applications are subject to credit approval, satisfactory security and minimum deposit requirements. Conditions apply to all loan options.

For investment loans, your borrowing capacity may also be influenced by other factors, such as the effect of negative gearing and the taxation laws in effect at the time of your application. Taxation considerations are complex and invariably linked to your personal circumstances. You should consult with your tax advisor before making any decisions.
