Trinity recently arranged a remortgage for a client switching from a large building society. The lender would not provide sufficient funds to carry out a large scale renovation works on his property.
He wanted to borrow an additional £200,000 to completely renovate his home and secure a low rate to minimise his repayment and without early repayment charges.
Our client was employed and earned a generous salary but he received an annual bonus, and he needed all of it to be used to meet the affordability calculations. As the most recent bonus was bigger than the one he had last year, he required a flexible lender.
Trinity’s broker approached the intermediary lending arm of a leading building society providing generous acceptance criteria and a range of early repayment charge free super-cheap discounted variable rates.
He spoke to a specialist underwriter who agreed to provide the full £850,000 using the client's salary and latest bonus. The lender was also happy to provide the funds for the renovation after seeing the plans and receiving proof that planning permission had been agreed.
The lender provided a free property valuation and legal fees to reduce the costs of switching. The mortgage offer was produced within a week.
