How much could my mortgage go up by?

The information you provided on your monthly payments would not be sufficient to pay off your mortgage within the number of years given.

This calculator does not constitute financial advice. It is based on a standard mortgage repayment formula based on the mortgage size and length and a fixed interest rate. It should be used as a guide only and does not represent the suitability, eligibility or availability of mortgage offers for users. For exact figures, users will need to approach an official mortgage lender.

Interest rates fluctuate based on the Bank of England’s base rate and market conditions.
