The clients wished to remortgage their main residence to raise capital for the purchase of a new holiday home in France. However, due to their age (both are 60 plus), the high loan amount, and them requiring an interest only product, securing the borrowing was a challenge.
The clients approached us with the aim of arranging a short-term bridging loan facility, which would give them the time to sell their home in the UK and the funds to buy the new property. They already had the cash deposit for the property but were looking to raise the remaining 80% LTV. They planned to eventually live in their new home in France once they retired.
Their age and the size of the loan required meant that they would not be able to secure the borrowing they needed from a high street lender and would need advice from a specialist broker.
Using our extensive knowledge and strong relationships with a range of UK and international lenders, we were able to arrange a mortgage for the client with more favourable terms than they had initially anticipated.
We took the time to understand the client’s circumstances fully and recognised an alternative solution: There was enough equity in the client’s home to allow them to remortgage it, rather than taking out a bridging facility, to buy their second home. This would not only give them more time and flexibility but would also be much cheaper with more favourable terms, suited to their circumstances.
After presenting their case to both French and UK lenders, we evaluated the various terms and selected a part interest only, part capital repayment mortgage.
The clients were happy with the nine-year term and the repayment method and were able to purchase their new home in France successfully.
