Reduce your outgoings and save money

Proposition

Our clients moved into their property in late 2008, taking out a £336,000 mortgage secured against a property value of £465,000. They have significantly renovated the property since then, building a large kitchen extension. These works were funded using loans and credit cards to a total cost of £130,000.

The clients attempted to remortgage several times, both going direct to their lender and using another mortgage broker but were declined due to their credit score. They have no missed payments but their debt to income ratio was the issue, even though they used the debt to improve the property rather than for personal spending. They have a joint income of just over £100,000.

Solution

We were able to arrange a £446,000 mortgage for the couple against the enhanced property value of £625,000, enabling them to raise capital to consolidate their debts. The remainder of the unsecured borrowing was cleared using the proceeds of the sale of shares. The clients opted for a discounted variable rate of 2.99% (APR 3.1%* - the overall cost for comparison) with an offset facility and no early repayment charges.

The clients have much improved cash flow and making considerable savings as the unsecured credit card loans were at much higher interest rates than the secured loan that has replaced them. They are also paying a lower mortgage rate than before, so are saving there too.

Fees

The client paid an arrangement fee of £2,230 (0.5% of the £446,000 loan amount).

Cold called Michael 17:23 on a Tuesday evening who within 20 minutes had gleaned sufficient information to email a solution on Friday afternoon. All correspondence and phone calls were answered quickly and accurately. Mortgages were raised in plenty of time for exchange. Michael, Maniksha and all others involved made an excellent responsive team making a difficult situation so much easier.
Just brilliant. Simon and Chloe have taken care of everything, twice now. The first time was really difficult, and Simon put in a huge amount of work to make it happen. Second time around, Chloe has taken the lead and it has been seamless. Thank you!
Jason Hall has always been outstanding and faultless to work with. He's also a top guy that really makes me feel like I'm his only client. Thank you!
