How many mortgages can a person have

Customer Question

Can a person hold as many mortgages as they want? In other words, if a person can afford to have 5 mortgages, for personal and rental property, will a bank lend them as many mortgages as they would need?

Banks are in the lending business. The old joke is that bamks only lend money to those rich enough to not need a loan.

Yes, lenders will lend to you based on your overall debt to income ratio. Be aware, however that multiple loans, and even multiple unused but open lines of credit can lower your credit score -- wven with a perfect payment record.
