- Let-to-buy mortgage arranged to ensure client could complete on new purchase without selling home
- Personal income from partner used to secure larger buy-to-let mortgage
- Incredibly cheap fixes for both residential and buy-to-let mortgages
Our client was an investment banker who had found a property he wanted to buy. He had put his house on the market but was unsure he would sell it in time to have sufficient funds to complete the deal. He did not want to take a bridging loan and asked what his options were.
How did we help?
Trinity's broker suggested that he keeps his existing property and releases some of the equity to use as a deposit for the onward purchase. He could then keep his home as a long-term investment and let it out.
After permitting us to arrange a buy-to-let, we did the calculations, and the rental income was not sufficient to raise the funds he needed. His income was also not enough to cover both mortgages and be used to top-up the short rent on the buy-to-let mortgage. As a solution, his partner was put on to the buy-to-let mortgage application, and her income was enough to boost the mortgage and make up for the rental income shortfall.
