House Deposit Savings Calculator

If you’re wanting to make that first step onto the property ladder, you might be wondering how you can make that dream a reality.

To help you on your journey to becoming a homeowner or upgrading your current property, we’ve created a handy house deposit savings calculator and planner to help you organise your finances.

Benefit from our easy-to-use savings calculator to find out how much you need to save per month and how long you need to save for before you reach your target. It’s worth noting that the higher your deposit, the better your mortgage rate too!

In order to get the most accurate results from the mortgage calculator, it's important to consider how much deposit you have available, taking into consideration other property purchase costs. Once you have worked this out, use the sliding scale to enter this amount and then the value of the property. This will then indicate the size of the mortgage which you will require.

Work out your typical monthly repayments

Based on the amount mortgage you will be borrowing, you can now find out what your monthly repayments will be. This figure will be prepopulated from the results previously entered, but is also dependent upon the number of years the repayment is made and the interest rate. These factors can be amended by moving the sliding scale.

It is worth considering how much repayment you can comfortably be able to afford, so you do not try to stretch your funds too far and make sure your budget allows for other eventualities.

This calculator is intended as a guide only and does not take into account other fees that you will be accountable for when taking out a mortgage. For advice and guidance you should speak to an independent mortgage broker/advisor, who is authorised to provide financial advice based on your specific circumstances.
