Our client was looking to purchase a holiday home in Ibiza. However, due to his employment status, finding a foreign currency mortgage was a challenge.
Our client had recently left his job and although the employer had agreed to pay him his usual salary for the next 12 months, including his bonus, he was effectively unemployed. For this reason most lenders were only willing to give him a 12 month mortgage term, as his regular income would cease after a year.
We were able to place a million pound plus mortgage for the client through one of our private banking contacts in Spain. A bespoke deal was created for the client after we presented the client’s case to the lender. We were successful in obtaining a formal credit sanction for the full loan amount.
The lender took a view on the client’s employment situation based on his historical income and his ability to earn income in the future, given his experience. In addition, the client has considerable equity tied up in his main residence in London, as well as a large investment portfolio.
He will use the yield from his investment portfolio to service the interest of the loan. He was also able to transfer assets to the value of €500,000, which were held on account with the bank for additional comfort. These were, however, not pledged to the bank and our client has full access to these at any time.
