We have been able to arrange a competitively priced £2.4 million mortgage for a client with dual nationality and significant offshore assets. To discuss this or any other large mortgage case, please contact us now.
Our client owned a flat in London and had the opportunity to purchase the remaining two flats within the property for £3.5 million to create a unique double fronted house with a projected value of £6 million. The freehold property was split into separate titles and our client’s intention was to let out two flats whilst living in the third. He wanted the ability to move his main residence between the three flats, depending on space requirements.
Whilst the projected rental income was sufficient to enable the total borrowing required, the client’s personal income was insufficient to cover all three flats therefore preventing one lender having a single charge over all three units.
After reviewing the client’s circumstances in depth, we realised that the client has significant offshore assets which would enable certain lenders to offer a mortgage on all three units at residential terms. The client has dual UK/US nationality which further restricts the choice of lender. With our connections we found a private bank which would lend against the freehold and had both an offshore platform for investments and offered specialist advice regarding remittance. This gave the client the flexibility to move between the flats, significantly reducing his costs and provided the specialist advice needed for the future.
