    25% of net income and FTB. I honestly don't know how anyone survives paying more then that. We only just get by on dh's wage

    Our minimum repayment is 26% of net income, but we pay double most weeks, so 52%.

    29% of our combined wage - this is actually for our mortgage (13.4%) and part of DP's parents mortgage (15.6%). It does freak me out a little that we pay more towards his parents mortgage when things are tight but it's a commitment he made and it's family.

    Oh, completely forgot we refinanced. Just checked with DP, our minimum repayments are actually more like 40% of our income at the moment.

    If/when interest rates go up, we'll definitely need to increase our income, but that's fine. Happy as we are currently.

    I never thought about working the % out. I've now done the sums and it's 18% of our combined gross income. This will be more next year as we plan on building a bigger home.
