Trinity Financial recently arranged a £3.6 million remortgage for client switching from a private bank. He wanted to raise funds to recoup the money he paid for a basement dig on his home and access a market leading rate.

When our client purchased his house, he arranged a mortgage through a private bank offering a competitive rate while he was living and working overseas. When he returned to the UK, he decided to extend his home and complete a basement dig to have more living space and add value to his property. 

The lenders offering super-cheap large loan rates would not allow him to switch to them because of the amount of work involved in redevelopment. He used his funds to complete the works even though he was on a variable rate and waited for the extension on the property to be completed before remortgaging.  

Our client wanted to lock into a five-year fix that was cheaper than the one offered by his existing bank and borrow money based on his increased property value.


Once Trinity's broker knew that the property was finished, he called a specialist mortgage underwriting team at a large bank providing £1 million+ deals at standard pricing.

The bank was happy with our client's income and the rate and arrangement fee comfortably undercut the terms the private bank offered. The underwriter issued a mortgage offer within ten working days and this included a free property valuation and remortgage service.

While interest-only was available to the client, he was happy with a capital repayment mortgage.
