Case Profile

The client wanted to remortgage his residential property; however, due to his age, income and proposed repayment strategy, finding a lender willing to take a view on his circumstances was a challenge.

The client wished to remortgage the current mortgage, which was due to expire within 6 months. Along with the remortgage he also wanted to raise additional capital to service another loan.

The client was due to turn 71 on his next birthday. This created a challenge in securing a loan as his current lender, along with most mainstream lenders, normally only lend to borrowers up to a maximum age of 75. As most would require a minimum mortgage term of 5 years this would exclude him from most mainstream lenders. In addition to his age, the client’s income did not meet most lenders’ affordability criteria.

Furthermore, the client wanted an interest only repayment option (to reduce his monthly costs), using the future sale of his shares in his company as a repayment vehicle.


Using our extensive experience in arranging large and complex mortgages we were able to find a remortgage solution for the client. We sourced a lender who would consider the client’s circumstances in more depth and offer a bespoke solution.

After putting the client’s case together and presenting it to the lender, they accepted the client’s requirements and income. The future sale of the client’s company shares were also accepted as the repayment vehicle.

The client was happy with the mortgage terms and was able to proceed with remortgaging his property.
