Associate Director Tom Foster was approached by clients who were looking to raise over £2million in capital against the remortgage of their buy to let (BTL) property.
The complexities with this case came from the BTL property which earned over £100,000 per annum, as many lenders may consider this as a commercial tenancy. Immediately, this reduces the number of BTL lenders who would consider reviewing a remortgage for this type of property.
In addition, the clients did not have the earned income proportion to what they wanted to borrow. However, their illiquid assets were valued at over £5million and this was taken in to account, in the background.
Finally, the couple comprised of one UK domiciled resident and one non-domiciled resident. As such, this resulted in a lack of ‘footprints’ or tax status in the UK.
Despite their proportionately low income, Tom was able to approach a lender who considered high net worth exemption and could view some of the clients assets as a form of income. Applying this common sense approach resulted in the clients securing their desired mortgage amount of over £2million.
