Our clients owns a property in Ladbroke Grove without a mortgage.
As the property has increased in value so significantly, they decided to release some of the equity and purchase more investment properties.
They were keen to ensure finance was agreed up front, so they did not need to apply for separate mortgages and could pay in cash.
They also wanted to lock into a competitively priced five-year fixed rate.
As the unencumbered property was worth £2.5 million and the lender offered mortgages up to 75% loan-to-value - there was a lot of equity to release.
Trinity's adviser approached one of the challenger banks providing larger mortgage loans and leading rates. This particular lender offered selected landlords pre-agreed facilities to provide them with cash lump sums.
Prior to releasing any funds, the bank asks for details about properties being purchased, although the funds can be released very quickly.
