Case profile

Our client wanted to borrow £1.5million to buy a new main residence. However, due to their complex income structure they were finding it difficult to secure a mortgage.

The income received is from two sources. The first is rental income. The fact that the accounts had losses carried forward from previous years presented a challenge. It has only been this year that the client had earned any taxable rental profit. Most lenders are not prepared to accept this income, as they average the last 3 years in order to evaluate earnings. This meant they fell below the affordability criteria.

The second source of income comes from a business that has only been trading for two years. Although the profits are growing, most banks would not accept this income as the business has been trading for less than 3 years. In addition, the majority of the profits have been retained in the business to date.


Through our extensive range of private banking contacts we were able to find a lender who would offer the client a mortgage and take a view on their income. After we presented the client’s case to the bank they created a bespoke mortgage solution.

The lender accepted that our client plans to draw a higher income from their business. In addition the client’s taxable rental income, going forward, would be substantially higher. Both of these income streams will be used to service the new mortgage.

The client was happy with this solution and was able to purchase their new home.
