Trinity Financial recently arranged a 500,000 Euro mortgage for a client and his partner purchasing a second home in Spain.
They were buying a fantastic property with a sea view and required a mortgage to top up their 250,000 Euro deposit.
Our client had contacted another broker to secure a mortgage and had terms in place, but he wanted another option because it had to be taken with life insurance.
Trinity’s broker arranged a competitively priced 2.4% five-year fixed-rate mortgage without the requirement for life insurance.
The lender was happy with the applicant's joint income as they comfortably met the affordability requirements and was happy with the loan-to-value.
In many cases, buyers of cheaper Spanish properties are stretching themselves financially to access a mortgage so applications are declined.
As the mortgage was over 250,000 Euros the arrangement fee was lowered from 1% of the loan amount to 0.5%. The monthly repayments were set to come from their UK bank account.
The Numero Identidad Extrajero was also in place as required by foreign buyers to purchase or sell a property in Spain.
