Case Profile

The clients wanted to purchase a new main residence; however, they were unable to use the income from the sale of their current property to purchase their new home. This complicating factor along with the client’s income structure meant a more tailored lending solution would be required.

They wished to purchase a new main residence and borrow on a regular mortgage basis. The clients had originally planned to upsize to the new property, but the sale fell through. As a result they required a short term cross charge loan on their current home, giving them time to find a new buyer. The total combined value across both properties was £4,402,000 and the initial total combined borrowing was £3,383,800; giving an LTV (Loan to Value) of 76%, which was problematic for most lenders.

The wife was employed and earning a regular income. The husband, however, was self-employed. His business had only been trading for one year, but it was clear that the business would generate a sustainable income. The client also has a proven track record of being a successful in his profession. Despite this, most lenders were not prepared to accept this income, as the business had only been trading for one year.


Through our extensive range of contacts in private banks we were able to provide the clients with a bespoke borrowing solution to meet all their requirements.

After taking care to evaluate every aspect of the client’s circumstances, we presented their case to a lender who was prepared to accept the relatively high LTV on day one. They also accepted the client’s income from his business.

They were able to refinance their current home on a cross charge loan basis and purchase their new home. The proceeds of the sale on the current home would be used to reduce the overall borrowing, once it had been made.

The clients were happy with this bespoke mortgage solution, and were able to purchase their new home.
