We were recently asked by a couple to investigate the mortgage options available to help buy their first home. The couple – both foreign passport holders but with permanent rights to reside in the UK – had their heart set on a house in south west London valued at £850,000. They required an 85% loan-to-value mortgage to complete the purchase. This is quite a high level of borrowing at that price level, which the majority of lenders would not be comfortable with.
Another layer of complexity came in the form of the husband’s income structure. As is often the case for people in the banking industry, a high base salary was accompanied by even greater bonus income. Not all lenders will accept this form of earnings, while some will cap the level of bonus income allowable in their affordability calculation.
Whilst the client was not hopeful we could find attractive terms – we were able to draw on our considerable lender knowledge and found a bank who could accept the client’s income structure and factor his increasing bonus income into their affordability calculation.
In addition to this, the bank was able to take a view around expected future income levels that allowed for the full loan required.
To the client’s surprise – and delight – the recommended product was at a phenomenal rate over a full 35-year term, allowing the happy couple to move into their dream home in no time at all.
