Factors that impact your borrowing capacity.

Borrowing capacity is the amount of money a lender or mortgage broker is willing to extend to you to purchase a property. It is also a measure of your ability to make ongoing loan repayments. In bank language we're talking 'serviceability.'

To establish how much they’re willing to loan you, a lender first needs to assess the amount you can afford to put down as a deposit as well as the likelihood of your meeting your loan obligations.
