This case study demonstrates how we arranged a £1.6million mortgage at a ten times income multiple across two residential properties. To discuss this or any other large mortgage case, please contact us.
Our client first read about Largemortgageloans.com in an article on arranging large and complex mortgage loans in the Sunday Times. He has a portfolio of properties worth approximately £10million, including his main residence, commercial units with flats above and standard residential units for rental. The portfolio has been built up over many years and his taxable income of £160,000 per annum is derived purely from rent.
He wanted to purchase a property in Esher, Surrey worth £1.8million by putting in £800,000 himself and borrowing the remaining £1million. The only other property in his portfolio on which he had a debt was his main residence in Wimbledon, worth £2.5million, which had £600,000 mortgage secured on it. He had been unable to find a competitive rate from High Street banks, who wanted to lend against his entire property portfolio.
Largemortgageloans.com’s specialist mortgage brokers knew that a select number of private banks would be interested in the case and soon found a bank willing to offer £1.6million on the basis that £1million would be secured (at 56% LTV) on his second home in Esher and £600,000 (at 24% LTV) on the main residence in Wimbledon.
The loan of £1.6million was ten times his yearly £160,000 income. The private bank was prepared to lend at this multiple because of the low loan to value ratios involved and the fact that the client has several unencumbered properties. What was unusual in this case was the fact that the bank did not want to take security across the whole portfolio, just the two most valuable properties.
