Couple raise capital against home to fund extension
The Clients: A married couple approached us looking to remortgage their home to raise capital for an extension. The husband is a homemaker with no income, the wife is a self-employed financial adviser.
The Property: A three-bed terraced house located in a popular commuter village in Kent. The pair were looking to extend the property to include a further bedroom and larger kitchen/diner.
The Finance: The couple were hoping to refinance their home at 80% loan to value, raising enough capital to cover the cost of the extension works. In addition to the LTV requested, the couple had asked that we approach a lender which would offer:
- A two-year fixed mortgage product
- Free legals
- A free valuation
- A quick turnaround
The Application Process: Taking the couple’s requirements into consideration we decided to approach a high street bank, which is currently working at a quick turnaround time.
After an initial discussion with the lender’s business development manager, we helped the clients complete the application and submitted it on their behalf.
Within two weeks of submitting the application a formal mortgage offer was received. Happy with the terms offered the clients decided to accept and the case completed just three weeks later!
