Case Profile

A large proportion of our clients here at are ex pats or foreign nationals who often struggle to source finance from High Street lenders. Their situations are not unusual – in fact with the rise of the global citizen they are in increasingly common. However, there’s usually a factor or a series of circumstances that make their case slightly more complex. That’s where we step in, as we have the network and skills to negotiate the best possible rate, even if the lender is manually underwriting our client’s lending.

We recently worked with a client who was returning to the UK after a number of years as a self-employed tradesman in Australia. He was looking to raise £237,000 to cover his divorce settlement against a buy to let (BTL) property worth £500,000 which he owned outright in his home town.

The BTL property was tenanted and our client was living with family and friends during the first few weeks of his return to the UK. Long term, he planned to resume his work as a self-employed tradesman and build up his client base in the UK. However, when he approached us he had no evidence of UK earnings outside of his BTL rental income.

Our client had much in his favour; the rental yield from the property was high and he was seeking a low loan to value ratio. However, his lack of recent income meant that most lenders wouldn’t consider his application.


Our Senior Mortgage Associate Daniel Gracie took up the case and approached a small building society with whom has a very strong relationship. He presented the case to their small team of accessible underwriters, who took a common sense approach to the application and agreed an offer from their standard product range.

Please note that this specific deal may not be available to – or suitable for – all customers, dependent on their individual circumstances. The rate quoted may become out of date at short notice and may not be available at the point at which customers enquire about it. This document may not contain all the information needed for customers to make a decision and they should seek advice.

Overall cost for comparison 4.4% APRC representative variable based on 36 payments at a the lenders variable rate, currently 3.4%. Because all, or part of, the mortgage is currently, or will revert to, a variable interest rate mortgage, the actual APRC could be different from this APRC and the payments could increase, if the interest rate of the loan changes.  For example, if the interest rate rose to 10.50%, the APRC could increase to 9.00%. The actual rate available will depend on your circumstances. Ask for a personalised illustration.
