You can also get a good idea of your expected mortgage costs by using a mortgage calculator. You will also need to factor in other costs such as legal fees, furnishings, stamp duty and so on. It is always worth exploring any schemes or financial incentives that may be available to you. Ask your sales advisor for more information.
