I would not hesitate to recommend Private Finance and I can’t praise the firm highly enough. Alexander Armstrong, Comedian, Actor & Presenter
So many people have congratulated us on getting finance in place to buy without selling. Very few people realised before how useful a broker can be. Jan Harrison
Once again, many, many thanks for the help provided by you and your team (especially Tricia). We were very impressed with how quick and responsive you all were. More than that, you were the key to us realising that we could actually move ahead on a let-to-buy basis, after I’d rather been discouraged by a previous conversation with another intermediary, so it’s no exaggeration to say that we couldn’t have done it without you. Mr & Mrs Lethem
Dear Edward, it was such a pleasure dealing with your firm, I wanted to make a special effort to write and thank you and your team for all your efforts.  I set you a difficult task because of the many circumstances surrounding my refinance. Having bought and sold property in England some years ago and then becoming a licenced commercial property broker in California, I was involved in arranging many mortgages both for myself and my clients. Both Simon Marsh and Tricia Clarke were gracious and helpful, and assisted me in every way possible. They were right on top of the situation and made me feel as if I was the only client they had. I have never had such excellent service before; both sides of the Atlantic! I truly appreciated the promptness with which all the requests were passed on to me, and in helping me to fill out the forms.  Now it is in the hands of the solicitors. Thank you again and I will have no hesitation in recommending your firm. Basia Fuller

Case Study: Doctors Seek to Let Out Existing Property And Purchase Dream Home

by Kate Blissett | Mar 26, 2019
Our clients – two doctors – wished to let out their property and purchase a second, larger one, into which they planned to move once the necessary financial arrangements had been made.


Our clients – two doctors – wished to let out their property and purchase a second, larger one, into which they planned to move once the necessary financial arrangements had been made. In order to do this, they hoped to take equity out of their first home and use it to put down a deposit for their second. They were particularly set on the idea of keeping their current home while purchasing their second, and this presented them with a number of difficulties, because the mainstream lenders with whom they had been dealing up to this point were unwilling to offer them a loan of the required size. There were a number of reasons for this: firstly, because both of our clients worked for the NHS while doing private practice work, and this left them each with two primary sources of income, one of which was classed as employed, one as self-employed. Mainstream lenders were unwilling to incorporate the entirety of our clients’ incomes when calculating affordability, which severely reduced the size of the loan for which they were deemed eligible. In addition to this, our clients were committed to paying £3k of school fees per month.


When they came to us, our clients had £328k equity in their first home, which had been valued at £550k. The second home they wished to purchase was worth £760k. We needed to find a lender who was willing to accept both of our clients’ incomes as primary, to take both incomes in full, to accept the £3k school fees per month, and who was amenable to top-slicing, so that we could take equity out of the first mortgage and put it towards the deposit for the second. We were able locate lenders who met all of these requirements, and our clients were able to achieve their desired outcome.   

Lending Facility

We advised our clients to take £114k out of their first home and put it down as a 15% deposit for their second. We then arranged two five-year fixed mortgages: the first was a let-to-buy interest-only mortgage on the first property, with a loan size of £336k, a rate of 2.44%, and mortgage payments of £685 per month. The second was a standard 85% LTV residential mortgage with a loan size of £646k, a rate of 2.14%, and mortgage payments of £2786 per month. The rent for first of these properties had been valued at £1400, which meant that it would cost them around £2k per month to run both properties.

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!
