Trinity Financial recently arranged an £850,000 mortgage for a couple buying a large property with a self-contained flat.
They had agreed to purchase the property but were struggling to secure a mortgage. They had three other broker firms working on the case and had a 15% deposit.
Both clients had senior positions at large companies and a mixture of employed and self-employed income. They wanted a competitively priced two-year fixed rate and a fast mortgage offer.
Trinity’s broker approached his contact at a large bank offering some of the cheapest fixed rates in the market. They spoke to the property valuation team and agreed the property was suitable security.
Even though the property had a self-contained flat and two kitchens, the bank was happy to provide a mortgage on the condition the flat would not be let out. This suited the client as they planned to convert it into a family room.
The lender provided a fantastically low two-year fixed rate for £500,000+ mortgages saving the client a fortune based on the specialist lending rate one of the other brokers provided.
The mortgage offer was produced within ten working days and the bank was happy with the mixture of employed and self-employed income.
