Trinity Financial recently arranged a £900,000 residential remortgage to help a client restructure his debt.
The mortgage rates on his main residence and buy-to-let were coming up for renewal and he wanted arrange new deals. His monthly repayments on his home were higher than he wanted because they were on full capital repayment over a short term, so he planned to switch it to interest-only.
Our client asked us to remortgage his buy-to-let loan to another lender as the deal they were offering him to stay was uncompetitive. However, as the rental income was not sufficient to secure enough funds to repay the mortgage, he needed to release some equity from his home and bring the loan-to-value to 60%.
The intermediary lending arm of a high street bank agreed to provide the £900,000 mortgage including £300,000 of capital raising to pay off the buy-to-let. They agreed a mortgage on one of the bank's specifice interest-only rates and produced an offer in two weeks. The client then repaid a lump sum off his buy-to-let mortgages and switched to a cheaper deal.
