This case study demonstrates how we arranged a £2.7million BTL remortgage at 3.8% variable interest rate with rental cover required of just 115%. To discuss this or any other large mortgage case, please contact us.

Case profile

The client was a senior executive at a multinational company. He had a £2.35million loan on a property worth £4.5million, which, due to his development work, had appreciated significantly from its 2009 purchase price of £2.5million. His was borrowing at Base Rate + 5% from development funders who wanted their money back. He wanted to repay his funders, reduce his borrowing rate and raise £350,000 for his next project. He had been living in the property in question but wanted to let it out at a rental cost of £3,000 per week (a yield of 3.5%).

Key issues

1. The client had been living in the property, not letting it out, so there was no track record of rental payments.
2. The yield of 3.5% was too low for traditional Buy to Let lenders.
3. The client’s income, although in six figures, was insufficient to cover the proposed debt of £2.7million.

The solution

The client’s broker had limited experience in arranging such a large and complex loan, so referred his client to largemortgageloans.com’s specialist mortgage brokers who know the small number of private banks who would be interested in the case. The clients were flying out to Bali, so the largemortgageloans.com broker went to meet them face to face to start the process immediately. A bank was quickly found willing to offer a loan, based on 115% rental cover, at Libor+2.95% (a pay rate of 3.8%) on a ten year term, interest only. There were early repayment charges of 1% for 2 years and the arrangement fee was 1.25%.
