Case profile

A client recently inherited a cottage which had an existing equity release mortgage secured against it. The property had a significant amount of land surrounding it and the client wanted to split the land into 2 plots, apply for planning permission and build a new property which would then be sold.
The client’s mortgage broker attempted to arrange buy to let finance but the banks were reluctant to lend due to the client’s lack of income and because the property had structural damage.

The solution

The broker approached a commercial mortgage manager at, who has extensive experience and connections in bridging finance. A bridging loan was arranged to repay the existing equity release mortgage, repair the structural damage on the cottage and fund the fees for planning permission. In addition, the client had enough capital left over to fully refurbish the cottage. Our commercial manager negotiated a bespoke rate of 1.2% per month over a 12 month period, with no early repayment charges.
