A mortgage in conjunction with Oxford University

MORE

Proposition

Amongst our clients are a pair of leading university professors. One of them recently moved to Oxford University.

Our clients wanted to buy a property in Oxford for £700,000 with a deposit of £50,000 and Oxford University offered to provide a second charge of £150,000 on a separate 3% loan.  So they needed to borrow a further £500,000. A private bank that we know well has experience in Oxford of this exact scheme. 

Solution

The bank met the clients, agreed the case and offered excellent terms and service.  The negotiated rate is 1.5% over the bank’s own base rate, giving a 3% payment rate (APR   %* - the overall cost for comparison).  The £500,000 loan is split between capital & interest repayment and interest only, because the clients are happy to use their pension lump sum to reduce the loan accordingly. The bank has agreed that the 15 year term may continue after retirement due to strong teachers’ pensions being in place.

Fees

The clients paid a £2,500 arrangement fee.

 

*APR (the overall cost for comparison) calculation based on a 15 year term, interest only mortgage with £2,500 arrangement fee, legal and valuation fees of £. The actual rate available will depend on your circumstances. Ask for a personalised illustration.

YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

I always feel in safe hands when seeking advice from Julian. He always seem to find the right product for my circumstances, particularly when the information I have doesn't seem to fit into all the relevant boxes.
The team is excellent. Tim has an unerring ability to come up with deals that can't be found anywhere else and his team, including Maniksha, is superb at tying up all the loose ends and driving the deal to completion. And they got me some money back!
Chris Sykes was great at getting lending sorted. And dealing with surveyors and getting a retention lifted before completion. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
