Case profile

Our client was the Chief Executive of a well-known PLC who had left his post to start a new role with another company. As his new job was several hundred miles away from his family home, our client decided to purchase a pied-a-terre where he could stay during the working week. Having found a suitable property, he came up against a challenge securing a mortgage because at that time he was effectively between jobs without an income.

Our client had signed a contract for future employment, but in the eyes of a number of lenders he was not working and would not have an income for the first few months of the mortgage. Therefore, it proved to be a challenging case.


Our team of expert advisers scoured our network of lenders to source a Building Society which would be willing to take a view on the situation. largemortgageloans.com explained that the client had a wider investment portfolio which – if necessary – could be liquidated to meet the income/affordability criteria for the loan. That information, coupled with the signed employment contract, gave the Building Society the confidence they needed to lend the required sum. Our client pressed ahead with the purchase of his pied-a-terre in time to take up his new post.

This case study is for information and illustration purposes only. It is not an offer, or suggestion of an offer. Each mortgage case is assessed on an individual basis and there is no guarantee that the solution described here can be repeated in the future.

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 The rate quoted may become out of date at short notice and may not be available at the point at which customers enquire about it.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 4.70% APRC representative variable based on 24 payments at a fixed rate of 2.24%, followed by 120 payments at the lenders variable rate, currently 4.99%. 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 12.00%, the APRC could increase to 12.80%. The actual rate available will depend on your circumstances. Ask for a personalised illustration.

Your home or property may be repossessed if you do not keep up the repayments on your mortgage. Changes in the exchange rate may increase the sterling equivalent of your debt.
