Case profile

Our client needed finance very quickly in order to purchase a new build investment property in London. The further complicating factors of this case were that he was a foreign national and had a complex income structure.

The client is a Saudi national living in Dubai. His local bank in Dubai originally confirmed they would lend him the funds two years ago, and after this, the client exchanged on the new build apartment. When completion was nearing, he approached the bank to obtain the finance, only to find the criteria had changed and they would no longer advance funds. When the client came to us he had under two weeks left to complete, due to the new build deadline.

The situation was further complicated by the fact the client was effectively self-employed, having three separate businesses which he either owned all or a significant share of. As the businesses were property related this would prevent some lenders being able to assist, purely on this basis.


Using our extensive range of private bank contacts we were able to source a lender that would not only lend to foreign nationals living overseas, but was also able to get from application to completion in under two weeks. The lender was able to meet the client in Dubai to obtain all necessary paperwork, greatly expediting matters. The case was then underwritten in less than 24 hours, with a valuation and legals instructed immediately.

The client was therefore able to complete before the deadline, meaning he did not lose the property and his substantial deposit of 30% of the purchase price.
