Our client was looking to remortgage his current residence and raise capital in order to repay the cost of refurbishments. However, due to his age and his planned repayment strategy, finding a mortgage was a challenge.
Our client’s home, situated in London, is valued at over £3 million. He required a total loan of £2 million; this amount includes increasing his current outstanding mortgage in order to repay the refurbishment costs, and securing better terms and rates offered by his existing lender.
The challenge for the client was twofold. Firstly, he is over 65 years old and required an interest-only mortgage for a 3 year term. Secondly, he wanted to use the value of future shareholdings as a method of repaying the loan. He owns three companies and is planning on selling them in 3 years’ time, releasing a multi-million pound windfall.
He had approached his current lender but, given his age and repayment strategy, they were unable to help him.
After utilising our unique relationships with an extensive range of private bank contacts, we were able to find a lender who would take a view on the client’s repayment strategy and his age.
The main challenge we overcame was the lender’s reluctance to accept his reliance on the future value of his company shares. However, we successfully negotiated the remortgage for the client with two stipulations; firstly, the loan was to be written over an 8 year term and secondly, the client had to make capital lump sum repayments, in addition to the interest-only payments.
The client was happy with the mortgage deal and was able to remortgage his property and pay off the costs of the refurbishments.
