Our client wanted to borrow money against his buy-to-let property to secure a deposit to buy another investment flat.
As his terraced property was split into three flats, there wasn’t a lease and he owned the freehold, he found it difficult to find a lender happy to offer him £750,000.
He also needed a bank or building society willing to offer longer mortgage terms to older borrowers.
One of Trinity’s expert buy-to-let brokers found a building society offering a low rate with a good product fee. They were also happy to lend to older borrowers.
They did not have an issue lending to freeholders providing their overall exposure to the block was low and the other leases were in place.
As the client owned a number of other buy-to-lets and received income through his investments, this was more than enough to meet the lenders minimum £25,000 income criteria.
