Largemortgageloans.com was approached by a couple who had found their dream family home but had been let down by their previous broker who was unable to secure them a mortgage.
The husband and wife pairing were 50% shareholders each in a business they started in 2012. While the company had gone from strength to strength, the most recent three years’ accounts showed fluctuating net profits as the couple had reinvested heavily and changed their business model in the second year, dampening the net profit figure in that year. This posed a problem as lenders will typically want to see a two or three year business history with income either stable or consistently rising.
When we were first contacted by the clients, they had been looking to sell their existing home in East London, while simultaneously purchasing the new property in Belsize Park for an agreed purchase price of £1.05m, of which they wanted to borrow £789,000.
After analysing the clients’ overall circumstances and liaising with the clients’ accountants to better understand the health of the business, our broker Devraj Ray was able to pinpoint a lender who would look at gross profit figures, as well as take a logical view on the fluctuating income figures – and were able to evidence the reason for the dipping year 2 profits as sound financial planning and business management.
Eventually, we secured the full requested loan amount for the clients, on an interest-only basis at a rate of 2.04% fixed for two years. This demonstrates the importance of a well-packaged case being presented to the right lender.
While the clients were overjoyed at finally being able to proceed with their purchase – we took one further step and were able to help them keep their existing property by refinancing it to a buy-to-let mortgage. As they already had significant equity in the property, the couple were able to release capital – which they had initially wanted to do but felt was out of reach. With the new BTL mortgage in place, the asset remains under their ownership and is now generating an extra £1,400 per month in income for the family.

Please note that this specific deal may not be available to – or suitable for – all customers, dependent on their individual circumstances.

Overall cost for comparison 4.50 % APRC representative variable based on 24 payments at a fixed rate of 2.04% followed by 276 payments at the lenders standard variable rate, currently 4.74%. Because all, or part of, the mortgage is currently, or will revert to, a variable interest rate mortgage, the actual APRC could be different from this APRC and the payments could increase, if the interest rate of the loan changes. For example, if the interest rate rose to 9.99% the APRC could increase to 10.60%. The actual rate available will depend on your circumstances. Ask for a personalised illustration.
Your home or property may be repossessed if you do not keep up the repayments on your mortgage.
