Foreign National with no credit history


Our client is a 67 year old living and working in Dubai. He is Australian passport holder, with no substantial assets in the UK. He has a good annual income, but no credit history. Before meeting us he had resigned himself to having to liquidate £650k of Australian assets in order to purchase - in cash - a retirement home in UK.


Having discussed the situation with him, we have negotiated - with one of our private bank partners - an interest-only loan up to 60% loan to value (LTV ratio) over a rolling 5 year term.

He intends to repay the loan by the age of 75, but was pleased with the flexibility that this arrangement gave him, both with his Australian assets and with his monthly payments.

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.
