£1.9 million purchase – need to borrow 100% - must exchange in 3 weeks

Proposition

Our client wished to purchase a country property for £1.9 million and needed to exchange in 3 weeks to secure the deal. He wanted to borrow 100% of the purchase price, plus costs, so around £2 million in total. His income was £750,000, with a base salary of £150,000, the rest being bonus. The client had a house in London, with no mortgage on it, valued at £1.2 million, which he did not wish to sell.

Client profile

Aged 39, married with 3 children, his plan was to live in London during the week and in the country at weekends. He had a £1 million investment portfolio of shares and other assets and wished to pay the mortgage off quickly with bonuses and investment returns.

Solution & Fees

After considering his options, we arranged an interest only remortgage for 3 years on our client’s current property for £720,000 – 60% of its value. We negotiated a rate of 1.69% over Bank of England Bank Rate, giving a payment rate of 2.19% (APR1 2.6%* - the overall cost for comparison). There were no Early Repayment Charges, and the remortgage costs were paid by the lender. The client paid a £1,499 arrangement fee on this mortgage.

To make up the total of £2 million that our client wished to borrow, we also arranged an interest only mortgage for 3 years on the new property; £1.28 million at nearly 70% of the £1.9 million purchase price. The rate was 2.09% over Bank of England Bank Rate giving a payment rate of 2.59% (APR2 3.4%** - the overall cost for comparison). Again, there were no Early Repayment Charges. The client paid a 0.3% arrangement fee (£3,840) on this mortgage.

I would highly recommend Private Finance Ltd. Alex Weldon in particular helped us secure our first mortgage. He answered all our queries in record timing (usually within 15-30mins!) and nothing was ever too much trouble. Alex was always on the other end of the phone if needed and he made the process as smooth as possible.
Ed and Donovan are brilliant at what they do. I have used them many times now and each time they have been able to find me a great deal and handle all the complexities of my case. I would always recommend them to anyone.
Great and professional team, especially Elizabeth O'Connor, who guided me through the purchase, which was successfully completed! Highly recommended.
