£2 million BTL mortgage – offshore income

Offshore income and assets? Need a million pound plus buy to let mortgage? We have the private banking contacts to provide a tailored solution. To discuss this or any other large mortgage case, please contact us.

Case profile

The client, a director and majority shareholder of an offshore private equity firm, owned a property in London that was to be rented out (he had previously lived in the UK). The firm had not been trading long so proof of income was difficult and the income was offshore. The client’s mortgage was on a very good tracker rate but the rate was ending shortly which meant that he would be reverting to a relatively expensive standard variable rate.

Although the client couldn’t show much income from his company he did have other offshore assets, which were a mix of properties and Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF’s). He received rental income from the properties so could demonstrate his income and wealth.


As the client’s income and assets were based offshore it was particularly difficult to find a suitable solution for him. We needed to find a bank that would recognise his offshore property income and assets, as well be comfortable with the income from the offshore private equity firm. The property was in a prime West End location, the loan to value was low and the rental income was strong therefore we were able to find a Private Bank willing to offer better terms than the client’s existing lender would offer.

The Private Bank wanted the client to bank with them in the UK and also requested he place cash with them for additional security.
