Case profile
Our client was a High Net Worth foreign national looking to purchase an £8million West London penthouse.

The complexities in this case stemmed from the purchase of this property. It was being purchased off-plan through the reassignment of a contract from another party who had originally agreed to purchase it from the developer. Contracts had been exchanged and a sizeable deposit had been paid well before we were contacted for urgent help to secure a bridging loan.

Neither the clients, nor their regular broker, were able to arrange a traditional financing offer before the purchase option expired. With a wealth of knowledge in securing the most suitable finance option for complex situations such as this, were able to reach out to our vast network of lenders for an ideal solution.

Trying to organise finance for an off-shore borrower is always a challenge and requires extra due diligence which traditional lenders and brokers may struggle with.

Lending to foreign nationals, whether a resident in the UK or overseas, is a familiar prospect for Our team often work with bespoke and non-standard transactions so were not put off by the complexities of this case.

We were able to establish a complicated source of wealth spread over multiple countries. Whilst this is high risk for many lenders, we identified which lenders in our network would be comfortable with this scenario. Our expertise in dealing with high net worth borrowers enable us to be flexible and creative in our solutions. Therefore, through our in-depth due-diligence processes, in conjunction with the bespoke lender selected, we managed to build up a clear picture of the client and their wealth that allowed the underwriting of the facility to progress smoothly.

We completed a 6 month, £4.3m residential bridging loan for the clients, enabling them to complete their purchase and not lose the large deposit that had already been paid.
