Trinity Financial recently arranged a £1.9 million mortgage for a client to purchase a property she had been renting.
When her landlord decided to put the property on the market, she wanted to act quickly and secure a large interest-only mortgage.
As the rent she was paying was expensive, she wanted to take advantage of the cheap fixed rates and access a mortgage that was cheaper than her rent.
Trinity’s broker approached a lender offering competitively priced two-year fixed rate mortgages on a part interest-only and part capital repayment basis. He got the mortgage agreed with our contact at the bank's specialist broker large loan team.
As 25% of the mortgage was on capital repayment and the rest was on interest-only, the monthly repayments were significantly cheaper, and part of the mortgage was repaid each month.
The mortgage came with the facility to make up to 10% overpayments each year so our client could bring down outstanding balance.
