Our clients asked for help to secure a £1 million buy-to-let mortgage against their existing home. They wanted to purchase a new main residence with cash.
As the house was unencumbered, the clients liked the idea of buying their new home while retaining the old one for investment purposes.
Even though the house was in a great location, the anticipated rental income was not enough to support the mortgage.
Trinity’s broker approached a challenger bank offering let-to-buy mortgages, allowing them to release funds from their home while letting it out.
As the rental income generated by the property was not enough to fund the full loan amount, the bank took their pension and investment income to boost the mortgage loan size.
The bank had a generous interest-only policy and was happy to offer a 15-year term.
Property: House in central London
Rate: 2.99% fixed for two years
Reversion rate: The bank’s standard variable rate, currently 4.25%.
The overall cost for comparison is 4.12% APRC representative.
Lender’s arrangement fee: £999
Mortgage term: 15 years
Repayment type: Full interest-only
Early repayment charge: 2% until 01 June 2018, 1% until 01 June 2019.
Overpayments: Up to 10% per annum without charge.
Representative example: A mortgage of £1,200,000 payable over 15 years, initially on a fixed rate for 24 months at 2.99% and then on a variable rate of 4.25% for the remaining 13 years, would require 24 monthly repayments of £2,992.49 followed by 156 monthly repayments of £4,253.54. The total amount repayable would be £1,936,950.68 made up of the loan amount, plus interest (£735,371.68) and fees of £999. The overall cost for comparison is 4.12% APRC representative.
