International oil executive, working offshore, buying in the UK

MORE

Proposition

Our client, an oil worker in Kazakhstan, has family living in northern England. He wanted to buy a family home there for £360,000, needing to borrow £288,000 (at 80% loan to value ratio) and spent three months talking to various lenders, none of whom would help. Because he works and is paid in Kazahkstan, he did not meet the criteria of any high street lender and his income was not enough for the private banks. He had almost given up hope of being able to purchase a property when he was introduced to Private Finance via one of our estate agency contacts.

Solution

We realised that an offshore lender was the answer. By this point the client had run out of time on his purchase because he had spent so long trying, and failing, to arrange the loan himself. There was only a month left. We called the vendor directly and were in contact with her every other day to ensure the deal was proceeding according to plan because she was anxious to put her house back on the market.

Thankfully, the offshore lender agreed the deal and issued a mortgage offer within 4 weeks. Our client completed within 8 weeks on a two-year tracker at 3.29% over Bank of England Bank Rate, giving a payment rate of 3.79% (APR 4.0%* - the overall cost for comparison).

Fees

The client paid arrangement fees of £2,160.

 

*APR (the overall cost for comparison) calculation based on a 16 year term, interest and capital repayment mortgage with £2,160 arrangement fee, legal and valuation fees of £1,500. 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.
