Case profile

Our client, a South African lawyer, wanted to purchase a property, valued at £2.35 million, to use as a second home in London. He works and lives in South Africa with no permanent rights to reside in the UK and is a wealthy individual who could afford to purchase the property outright. However there are restrictions on the amount of money that may leave South Africa and so the client needed a substantial mortgage of £1.85million.

The solution

As the client has no permanent rights of residence, he could not find a high street bank that was willing to lend. He chose largemortgageloans.com because of its reputation as a large mortgage specialist having strong relationships with over 44 private banks and boutique lenders.

The experienced largemortgageloans.com mortgage manager recognised that the client banked with one of the largest financial institutions in South Africa which also operates a specialist UK bank. A meeting was set up with the private banking division of the UK bank, which offered the client a competitive rate of 2.24% over the Bank of England Bank Rate.
