How we can help – case studies
Ex Partner with Existing Mortgage
A client approached us to see if we could help after fearing the worst. This couple had been saving for over 3 years for their deposit and had reserved a plot for their dream home. They had received a call to finalise this reservation but unfortunately, an ex partner had not cleared an existing mortgage on a previous property. Panicking they thought that they would have to give this property up as well. Making matters worst, one client was furloughed with no ability to earn due to the nature of her job.
We looked at their income and expenditure and using all income streams from Mr, we managed to secure a mortgage for £177,000 at 85% loan to value on the property, without having to include Mrs’ income. They will be able to reclaim the additional dwelling tax payment once the sale has gone through of the ex partners property as long as this is done within the next 18 months. Two very happy and delighted clients.
Freeing up cash with a Let to Buy mortgage
A young couple desperate for more space, came to see us, they owned their home and another Holiday Let property but had no free cash for the deposit. Mr was a contractor and Mrs was a homemaker.
Using all the properties as security, we managed to release funds from the Holiday let property, on a new Holiday Let mortgage, Raise money from their existing home that they were keen to retain and rent out, using a very competitive Let to buy mortgage and finally secure a residential mortgage for their main residence. In doing this we were able to balance the debt through three properties to make it not only tax efficient but also very affordable, as the investment properties we able to cover most of the residential costs.
