This case study demonstrates just how price competitive private banks can be. We arranged an 80% LTV £1.6 million mortgage at Bank of England Bank Rate plus 2.24% tracker – a pay rate of just 2.74% – with no ERCs. To discuss this or any other large mortgage case, please contact us.
A client needed a mortgage of £1.6 million to help purchase a property worth £2 million at a Loan to Value ratio (LTV) of 80%. He had already asked his broker about high street bank deals, whose rates – he had read – were more competitive than those offered by private banks for £1 million mortgages. However, his broker knew that, the high street banks will not lend at 80% on this level of borrowing and that largemortgageloans.com would be able to place the deal with a private bank from its extensive connections.
The client’s broker had limited experience in arranging such a large and complex loan, so referred his client to largemortgageloans.com’s specialist mortgage brokers who know the private banks who would be interested in the case. The client needed to exchange on the property in two weeks in order to avoid losing his non-refundable retainer of £20,000. A bank was quickly found willing to offer a £1.625 million (81.25% LTV) mortgage at Bank of England Bank Rate plus 2.24%. The client ultimately opted to take £1.6 million as the loan amount and exchanged within his two week window. Because the deal has no early repayment charges (ERCs) the client will be able to make overpayments from bonuses and quickly reduce the loan amount outstanding.
