Trinity Financial recently arranged a £500,000 residential remortgage to help a client pay off his buy-to-let loan.
After speaking to an accountant, he decided to restructure his finances and pay off the buy-to-let mortgage by raising money against his unencumbered residential property. Once our broker understood his financial situation, he recommended an offset mortgage because he had cash in the bank earning minimal interest.
The application was submitted to a large building society with a reputation of providing impressively priced rates with an offset facility. The lender was happy the funds would be used to pay off another mortgage and provided a free property valuation. The mortgage offer was produced within ten working days.
Once the mortgage completed and the offset account was opened, our client transferred his savings into the linked account to reduce his monthly repayments.
After the buy-to-let tax changes were announced, Trinity's brokers have arranged more mortgages for landlords raising funds to pay off their buy-to-let debts.
