Initial funding provided in just three days for an investment property

The Challenge

Our client is a property investor who is developing her investment portfolio. We were approached for an urgent loan of £10,000 for the deposit to buy an investment property at auction with an estimated selling price of between £35,000 and £45,000. Timing was critical as the auction was taking place in two days’. Unfortunately, the client wasn’t successful at the auction but bought a property in the same area a week later from an estate agent and required further funding to complete the deal.

The Solution

As the client already owned a buy-to-let property, we took a 1st Charge over this which allowed us to lend the client £10,000 for the deposit to potentially purchase the auction property. As the client ultimately purchased an investment property via an estate agent, we also took a 1st Charge over the new buy-to-let property to allow us to provide a total of £59,300 for our client to complete the purchase of her second buy-to-let property.

The client’s exit strategy is to re-finance with a standard buy-to-let mortgage.

Deal Breakdown:

Funds required: £59,300
Time taken to complete: Three and ten working days
Loan duration: Five months
LTV: 69%
Security: Two two-bedroom terrace houses both located in Bootle, Liverpool
Charge: Two 1st Charges
90 Day Valuation: £85,000 over both properties
