Our client asked for help to secure an interest-only mortgage using his Swiss pension income and limited company accounts.
After recently switching from a sole trader to a limited company, he struggled to get a mortgage when he applied directly to a lender.
He hoped his generous pension pot accrued when he was living and working in Switzerland could be used, as he transferred funds into his UK bank account each month.
After assessing the client's financial situation, our broker researched the market and sourced a bank with low rates accepting pension and foreign income.
The lender was happy to assess his sole trader accounts and take the limited company’s latest income.
As the mortgage was agreed on an interest-only basis, the bank used his investments as the interest-only repayment vehicle.
