">Mortgage Debt Ratios

« Back to Glossary Index

Mortgage debt ratios measure a borrower’s ability to repay a loan. Lenders generally will not approve a borrower whose debt ratios are above that lender’s maximums.

There are two common debt ratios, the Gross Debt Service (GDS) ratio and the Total Debt Service (TDS) ratio.
