HSBC for Intermediaries has changed its maximum mortgage income multiples and introduced 5.5 times salary mortgages for higher earners.
The difference with this HSBC's criteria change is that applicants can earn £100,000 between joint applicants providing they have a deposit of at least 10%. Applicants can also be paid in foreign incomes like euros or dollars and still get 5.5 times their salary.
Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial
, says: "HSBC has some of the cheapest rates in the market and borrowers taking an income stretch mortgage can qualify for the rates. It is good news the lender has started to provide more generous income multiples especially for the borrowers struggling to raise enough money to purchase the properties they like."
