Case profile

The client is a successful Project Manager for the United Nations based in Afghanistan. Their circumstances are so unique that most lenders could not assist, either because of the country of residence or because many lenders would assume the client would have diplomatic immunity in that role which would make them ineligible for their products. The client wanted to purchase a second investment property in the UK, with a maximum loan to value possible. The client’s income was strong, and spent very little of it on daily basis, due to the nature and location of the job role.


We were able to identify a niche lender that would be prepared to assist even though the client resides in Afghanistan. They accepted a letter from their employer confirming their address, which is a break from their usual criteria. As a manual underwriting niche lender, they are able to make such exceptions for the right clients. The most suitable facility we were able to source was a 2year discounted variable rate, using a rental cover calculation of 125% at 5%, which is market-leading for overseas residents and expatriate.
