BEWARE !! Mortgage Calculators are great tools but they don't take the whole lending scenario into consideration.
Different lenders use different methods of calculating your borrowing power therefore, your borrowing ability will differ significantly between lenders. Lenders also have different lending policy around what they will lend and your circumstances. A simple example of this is that each lender has their own policy around self-employed income and what can be used in terms of working out borrowing capacity.
Your borrowing ability will also be influenced by the amount and type of deposit that you are willling or able to contribute. There are many factors which influence your borrowing capacity so whilst online mortgage calculators can be a guide they are merely just a starting point.
