Mortgage offer with full retention of funds pending conversion

The client was purchasing a new primary residence, however at the point of agreeing the sale it was split into three flats.

None of the high street lenders were interested in making a formal mortgage offer before the property was converted into one habitable dwelling. However, we found a specialist lender who agreed to offer with a full retention.

This meant that the client exchanged contracts, did the necessary work, then the surveyor re-inspected and valued the property and the retention was removed, allowing the funds to be released.

Here are the details of the deal:

Purchase price: £700,000

Loan amount: £425,000

LTV: 60%

Rates: 2.99% 5 year fixed

Terms: 20 years capital & interest repayment

Arrangement fee: £999
