Case Profile

The client was a young, high net worth Chinese national working for a telecommunications company in China. Through work he traveled extensively to the US and UK, and therefore decided to buy an investment property in central London.

Due to the client’s nationality, lack of UK visa and overseas residential status, there were only a handful of lenders that would consider a mortgage loan application. To further complicate matters, the apartment the client wished to buy was an ex-Local Authority property, meaning that all except prohibitively expensive, short term lenders would not consider the case.


Although the property was ex-local authority, it was in an attractive, traditional 1900 building in an up market area of London, Bloomsbury, and was high value, with an agreed sale price of £985,000.
The client had already spoken to our first choice lender directly and been declined at the initial enquiry stage due to the property type. However, we felt that it was a good case and put a proposal to our contact at the bank who in turn sought an exception from their underwriting department. Due to the strength of the client’s credentials and positive nature of the property we were able to get an exception and arrange the large mortgage for our client.
