Bridging loan then remortgage 2 months later with same lender

The client, a fulltime property developer and landlord, approached us for help in purchasing a two-bed terrace house in need of complete refurbishment before it could be let out.

As the vendor required a quick sale and the property was in a poor state it could not be purchased with a buy to let mortgage, so it was clear that a bridging loan was initially required.

We approached a lender which offered to provide a bridging loan first, then without the need for an additional application, would allow the client to remortgage onto a buy to let mortgage product (subject to a simple re-inspection) once the property was ready to let.

Crucially, the lender agreed to allow the refinance to take place within six months of purchase – not many lenders will allow this type of transaction.

Here are the details of the deal we were able to negotiate for the client:
