Definition Of LTV And LTV Ratio
Fortunately if you are wondering how to calculate loan to value, that `s straightforward as you can use our loan to value ratio calculator. Alternatively our mortgage advisers will happily work out what your loan to value ratio is from just asking you a few basic questions which you will probably already know the answers to. If you haven `t spotted it yet `L.T.V.` stands for `Loan To Value`. This is the calculation used to give lenders the ratio of the loan or mortgage they give to you compared to the value of the home that you have borrowed the money for or on. The LTV ratio is often expressed as a percentage. So to take a common example if you had a 10% deposit and were looking to buy then you would be looking at 90 LTV Mortgages Knowing this figure is useful for the mortgage lenders because they can see how much security they have, however it is also useful to our customers as the remaining percentage is your share of the equity in the property at its current value.
How To Work Out Loan To Value ratio And LTV
Loan to value is often used in the criteria of many lenders with people with low loan to values finding it easier to find finance as the lenders have more equity on top of their loan to you than in a higher LTV ratio agreement. By the same principle as risk increases rates tend to do the same, therefore if two separate applications are equal in all other ways but one is at a notably higher LTV then it is likely that the higher LTV ratio mortgage or loan applicants would be offered a higher interest rate on their mortgage or homeowner loan. If you are raising additional money on your home for example via a remortgage then your loan to value ratio will change from the current LTV to the proposed or new LTV if you get the loan or mortgage. For your current LTV ratio calculation you need to know your estimated mortgage balance, which you can find on your most recent mortgage statement, together with the value of your house, a great source for this can be local papers to see what houses are selling for or perhaps from somebody who recently bought or sold a house similar to yours near to your area. You then divide the current mortgage balance by the property value. If you are raising extra money through a remortgage your proposed or new LTV would be calculated by taking the new total loan, mortgage or remortgage amount to be borrowed and dividing that by the current property value.
Loan To Value Ratio Calculator Example
We have hopefully now established the formula for calculating your loan to value is not too complex.
LTV Ratio Percentage = (Current Mortgage Balance / Property Value) x 100.
For example, your home is worth an estimated £160,000 and you have a current mortgage on it with a balance at £90,000. Your current loan to value ratio is 90,000 : 160,000 which is 0.526. To make that into a percentage you multiply by 100 to give you 52.6%. This is actually a low loan to value position for the home owner to be in.
Now if the same home owners wanted to raise an additional £20000 then by using the loan to value calculator we can work out what the new LTV is, (90,000 + 20,000) / 160,000 which is 0.6875. As a percentage we multiply by 100 again to get 68.75%, this is the loan to value ratio that your lender would be agreeing to go to for you to get the money. As mentioned before you can see how much equity you have left in your property by taking the new loan to value away from 100, so in this case your remaining equity at the current property value would be 100 minus 68.75 = 31.25%.
How Can Loan To Value And LTV Ratio Affect You?
Usually if you have a low loan to value, you will find getting approved for a homeowner loan, mortgage or remortgage easier in addition you may even receive a lower interest rate on your finance. However there are many other factors and as LTV is only one of them and some plans we have access to may go up to 95% LTV don `t worry. Even if you think your LTV is too high we suggest you call or enquire through our on line form to First Choice Finance as we have a selection of loan and mortgage plans to help people with either low loan to value or for those with very little equity in their home, i.e. have or need a high LTV but could still potentially obtain a mortgage.
