Trinity Financial recently arranged two buy-to-let remortgages and a new residential mortgage to enable our client to purchase a new family home.
He had found a property he wanted to buy but did not have a large enough deposit or enough money to pay for the stamp duty.
Our client did not want to sell his existing home because it was in a good location and he thought it would increase in valuation over the longer term. He also had an investment property with lots of equity.
He had a senior role at a leading financial services firm and had a good income.
As the client already owned two properties and had a good income, it was a case of sourcing the lowest buy-to-let rates and arranging a new residential mortgage.
Trinity's broker switched the client's existing home onto a buy-to-let so he could keep the property and benefit for any capital growth and release funds pushing the loan-to-value up to 60%.
As the buy-to-let mortgage was on a tracker rate and it did not have any early repayment charges, he also remortgaged the product onto a competitively priced fixed rate and released funds. The loan-to-value increased to 50%.
Our client wanted to lock into a longer-term fixed rate, so we approached a building society providing some of the lowest rates at 85% loan-to-value.
To ensure the deposit and stamp duty funds were in place enable our client to purchase the property the buy-to-let remortgages completed a week before the new purchase was due to complete.
