Full details:

We were approached by a broker looking to source buy to let finance for his client – a full-time landlord with six rental properties.

In 2015 the client had purchased a two-bed maisonette in North London, via a bridging loan. The property had been purchased with a bridging loan as it needed refurbishing before it could be let.

Since then, the client has refurbished the property to a high standard and has started letting it to a family.

Keen to refinance onto a buy to let mortgage and raise capital to repay the bridging loan, the client had approached a broker for help in sourcing suitable funds.
