Our client initially applied directly to a large high street lender but struggled to get a mortgage.
As a first-time buyer who lost the first property he agreed to buy because of his bank’s slow processing times, he wanted help to secure a fast mortgage offer.
He received a salary where part of his income included a bonus and was keen to find a lender happy to take his overall income into consideration.
It was important the client secured a low rate with a longer mortgage term to minimise the monthly repayments.
As our client was keen to secure a fast mortgage offer in order to purchase his first property, we approached a high street lender with a specialist broker division.
They were happy to use a percentage of his bonus income and they also agreed the property was of sufficient security to provide a £585,000 mortgage.
The rate was competitively priced and the mortgage was taken over a 35 year term to minimise the monthly repayments.
