Unusual properties can capture the imagination and provide incredible homes, but it doesn’t always mean they are easy to finance. If your property is listed, thatched or of a non-standard construction such as a timber frame, concrete or even predominantly made of glass, you are likely to need a specialist lender.
Our client approached largemortgageloans.com looking to finance a Grade 2, listed property. Added to the complexity of the property itself was the client’s financial situation. Recently divorced, they had limited capital to use as a deposit. They drew income from a number of companies, however only enough to meet their living expenses, which would not have satisfied most lenders in the context of the size of the loan.
This situation meant that the majority of the loan needed to be interest only. Additionally, the client outlined a desire to retire in the next decade, meaning it would need to be agreed on a short-term basis.
Our Associate Director Nigel Bedford used his specialist knowledge of retail lenders to select a small number of banks which would consider such a tricky case. He presented a detailed, compelling credit proposal to these banks, demonstrating the track record of undrawn profits from our client’s various business interests. This information was enough to satisfy a lender and all of our client’s requirements were met with a bespoke and tailored lending solution.
