Case profile

The client is a foreign national living and working in Switzerland. He wanted to purchase a main residence in the UK valued at £1.6 million. He had a buy to let (BTL) property in London which was valued at £1 million, but it had an existing £200,000 mortgage. He also had £200,000 of cash that he was happy to put down towards the purchase. The client therefore needed a mortgage of £1.4 million to purchase the new main residence in the UK, and pay off the existing mortgage on his BTL property.

We were unable to arrange the mortgage with a high street lender because the client could only show offshore income and was not a UK taxpayer. The client also wanted an interest only mortgage to suit his income stream as he was reliant on bonuses to repay the capital.


Having reviewed the client’s situation, selected a short list of private banks to see which would offer the best terms to the client. We were able to arrange a £1.4 million mortgage secured across both properties to repay the existing £200,000 mortgage on his buy to let property and purchase a new residential property on an interest only basis.
