Case profile

We partner with several leading accountancy firms, one of whom had clients who needed to arrange a bridging loan of £2.5million, borrowing £700,000 more than the purchase price of the new property (£1.8million) to enable significant works to be carried out. Whilst the property was habitable at the time of purchase, the nature of the works would result in the property being uninhabitable so they would need to stay in their current property for the duration of the works. The clients’ current main residence had no mortgage on it and with a recent valuation of £4million, there was no shortage of bridging lenders to choose from. However the solution they had been offered included a 2% arrangement fee and 0.85% per month interest costs. Based on borrowing £2.5million this would have resulted in fees of £50,000 and interest rolling up at the rate of £21,250 per month.


Having reviewed the clients’ three years accounts, assets, liabilities and track record, it became clear that the applicants had significant property experience and that their business banking might be attractive to a lender. largemortgageloans.com wrote a credit proposal which was sent to selected private banks who we felt would wish to lend due to the low overall loan to value ratio of 43% and the high quality client profile.

We arranged the full facility of £2.5million at a variable rate of 3.2% and with total lender fees of 1.5% on a two year facility. This solution saved the client over £14,500 per month in interest costs and £12,500 in fees. The previous valuations were retyped to save £4,000 and reduce the timescales. The offer was issued within 8 days of first contact.
