Our client asked for help to remortgage his family residence in North London and secure a lower rate.
After struggling to find a competitively priced deal through another broker, he contacted Trinity Financial.
As he lived and worked in Doha and his family were residing in the property, he did not meet the criteria of many of the lenders.
Trinity’s adviser contacted a large bank and explained the client’s situation, providing evidence of his strong financial track record.
Although his application was outside the bank’s normal lending criteria, he had substantial experience working as a contractor with a good salary.
The bank was happy to offer a low fixed rate even though part of his income was paid in Qatari Riyal with the remaining salary in GBP.
