Our client was in a poor financial position and struggling to keep up with repayments on her buy to let mortgage and also a second charge loan facility which she was servicing monthly.
This was principally attributable to receiving poor advice from another broker, which led to her taking out a punitive second charge loan facility at an eye-watering interest rate of 18% per annum. The high interest payments meant that our client was in a considerable negative deficit each month against the rental income she received from the property.
The second charge lender served a formal demand which meant our client was required to repay the second charge facility in full within 7 days whilst also incurring default interest of 3.5% per month.
Simply put, we had to act fast utilising our strong relationship with a panel lender and working closely with our client’s solicitor.
We arranged a 12-month regulated bridging facility at a considerably cheaper interest rate of 0.58% per month, with repayment being through the sale of another property. This was with added advantage of no early repayment charges meaning that the earlier that the loan was redeemed the more than she could save in interest.
Our client was very pleased that we were able to give her the breathing room and save her a significant amount of money:
