Our clients were looking to arrange a mortgage for their new home valued at £1.78 million. However, due to the age of one of the applicants, their low income and the speed at which they required the finance sourcing a mortgage created a challenge.
Our clients were selling their current home to move into a larger, new build property. They had already exchanged contracts on the new property, however, at the last minute their bank had pulled out of financing the purchase. As a result, they needed to arrange a new mortgage very quickly to meet completion deadlines and avoid substantial penalties.
Their income presented a challenge as it was not high enough to meet most lender’s affordability criteria. They jointly own and run care homes, which they hold through a complex limited company structure. Much of the profit they made from their companies was retained in their businesses, and not drawn as a salary or dividends.
The developers of the new property had agreed to pay £90,000 of the total stamp duty due on the property, as a purchase incentive. However, as this amount was over 5% of the purchase price, some lenders would not be happy to accept this.
They also required an interest-only mortgage on a short term of just 8 years, which would end before the retirement of one of the applicants. They planned to downsize at the end of the term to service the loan. However, the LTV of the mortgage was over 50% and many lenders would not be happy to accept this as a repayment method.
They had approached their own mortgage broker. However, they were unable to assist and so contacted us to arrange their mortgage.
Utilising our extensive experience in arranging large and complex mortgages we were able to arrange the mortgage our clients required to purchase their new home.
Through our relationships with an extensive range of banks, we sourced a specialist retail lender who would accept a builder’s incentive. We also negotiated with the lender to enable our clients to use the retained profits from their business to demonstrate their affordability. In addition, we also arranged an interest-only mortgage above 50% LTV and the lender accepted downsizing as the repayment method.
As well as securing our client’s low rates and fees, we were able to process an application through to completion very quickly.
Our clients were delighted with the outcome as they secured the property with a great mortgage deal and could complete on time.
