Securing lending against country estates and properties with large areas of land can be difficult, if you don’t work with a specialist mortgage adviser. Properties with separate cottages, outbuildings, stables or animal grazing rights can prove problematic for some lenders and may require a commercial mortgage. However, there are solutions on the market, if you work with an adviser who knows where to find them.
Our clients owned a substantial country home with a number of adjoining land parcels under separate title. They were all being used as security for multiple loans with different lenders and the clients wished to refinance them all with one lender. They also wanted to raise capital to gift some funds to their child to make their first property purchase. They would use any remaining capital to repay some outstanding unsecured debt.
Due to the complexity of the current lending arrangement and the type of asset, the client needed our specialist team on board to find a solution to their requirements.
Our Specialist Adviser a private bank which has a particular strength with this property type. They were happy to take all available titles as security for one single loan and, at the same time, release the capital required to both repay the unsecured debt and provide the funds for the client’s child to successfully purchase their first property.
