Case details and solution
Securing a buy-to-let mortgage can be difficult if clients live in Australia, although we found a private bank happy to lend.
Property: Three bedroom house in Richmond for £1,100,000.
Required mortgage: Client needed to raise £500,000.
Rate: 3.75% term tracker. This is based on a term tracker LIBOR tracker plus a margin of 3.20%.
Term: The mortgage will be taken over a 5-year term. This is typically renegotiated with the lender or broker once it expires.
Lender''s arrangement fee: 1% of the loan amount.
APR: The overall cost for comparison is 3.8%.
Repayment type: The mortgage can be taken on an interest only or capital repayment basis. Our client took interest-only on this occasion.
Early repayment charges: 1% of the mortgage amount must be paid within two years.
