After explaining his financial situation to a number of high-street lenders, our client was disappointed that he couldn't secure a mortgage.
He had a contract with an Aviva Premiership club and also received a number of performance related bonuses.
Many of the banks and building societies work out how much they lend sportsmen based on their age and anticipated retirement age.
Trinity approached a bank happy to offer sports professionals a mortgage, providing they have a good deposit and a track record of receiving income.
They also want to see proof that contracts have been renewed and be assured clients can afford the monthly repayments once they retire.
