Looking for Mortgages for Business? You're in the right place! Welcome to our new site...

Our clients were looking to purchase a multi-unit property located in the Scottish Highlands and required funding to support their deposit.

The Client

Experienced landlords and holiday let owners. They had a substantial background income from their day jobs, making them ideal applicants to lenders..

The Property

A multi-unit property located in the Scottish Highlands, comprising of a detached house, detached garage, and a detached cottage. The property was ideally located, with access to local amenities such as shops and transport facilities for visitors to use.

The Finance

Our clients were looking to purchase this property, so required funding to support their deposit.

The Challenge

The case created two challenges for us, the initial being the deposit source. As experienced landlords, our clients wanted to use a Further Advance to capital raise on one of their existing Scottish holiday let properties as a deposit. Despite the fact this property had increased in value following refurbishments, our clients only completed on the purchase during the 2021 COVID lockdown. This meant that it lacked evidence of letting income, meaning lenders were wary of this as a source of secure funding.

The second challenge we faced was that the Highlands location meant limited lender appetite and availability. With very few lenders happy to offer on properties in this area, our options were restricted.

The Solution

Our experience and expertise in Holiday Lettings meant that we knew to get in contact with a reputable holiday let agent local to the area. The agent used their professional opinion to work out projected holiday lettings income for both properties, which worked out at £36,000 per annum for their existing property and £60,000 per annum for the new purchase. With these projected earnings presented to our clients’ current lender, they were happy to offer a loan for the purchase. Here are the property details:
