Our clients were looking to expand their growing business by buying more franchises, and needed funding to do so. They decided to refinance their home, valued over £3.5 million to fund the expansion.
Their home already had an interest only mortgage close to £1,000,000 with a large amount of equity in the house. The clients wanted to release £750,000 to fuel their expansion plans and were looking for an interest only loan at a fixed rate.
Unfortunately, our client’s current High Street lender couldn’t help them. Almost all lenders do not allow funds to be released from private residences to fund business expansion; therefore this made the situation more complex. Added to this, the clients had insufficient income on their latest accounts to meet lenders’ affordability models, even though expanding their business would lead to a significant increase in both turnover and profit.
Our team set to work researching all the options available, finding lenders willing to remortgage the property or offer a long-term second charge bridge on the property. Still, the clients could not meet the basic affordability criteria. However, our expert advisers managed to source a specialist short term, second charge lender who was prepared to advance the funds for business use on a rolled up, fixed rate interest basis which suited the clients needs.
This solution eliminated the clients affordability criteria issue, as the interest will be rolled up and paid back at the end of the term. It also meant our clients could plough all of the funding into their business and purchase the additional franchises, which will lead to future rises in their income.
Our relentless pursuit to find a solution led to incredibly happy clients with a lending product uniquely tailored to their specific needs.
