Trinity Financial recently arranged a remortgage for an engineering contractor switching rates and borrowing additional funds.
He wanted a part interest-only mortgage to keep the monthly repayments low and secure a leading five-year fixed rate.
As he had come to the end of his current deal, he thought it was a good time to switch to a more completely priced rate and borrow an additional £150,000 to purchase a buy-to-let property.
He had one full year’s experience working as a contractor and was previously employed in the engineering sector. He was three months into his second 12-month contract.
Trinity’s broker contacted a high street lender with an excellent policy for contractors combined with excellent five-year fixed rates.
The bank was happy with his track record of working in the engineering sector and that he had nine months left in his job.
As the client met the minimum qualification income for interest-only, it accepted part interest and part capital repayment mortgages. He had £450,000 on interest-only and £150,000 on capital repayment.
The bank provided one of the most impressively priced five-year fixed rates and was happy to release funds to purchase an investment property.
The mortgage offer was produced in a week.
