This means that most mortgage providers will consider your deposit amount to be more than satisfactory, but speaking to a broker is still recommended to ensure you get the best deal.

Will the calculations be any different for buy-to-let?
While the loan-to-value ratio will be calculated in exactly the same way for a buy-to-let property, keep in mind that the LTV requirements for lenders in this corner of the market are different.
Minimum deposit requirements for a buy-to-let mortgage are typically between 20% and 25%, which means 75-80% LTV is where creditworthiness starts to kick in.

Our calculator can do this for you, but be sure to enter the value of the share of the property you’re buying, rather than the overall market value. If it’s a remortgage and you’re staircasing, be sure to factor the increased value of your stake into the calculations.
