£7 million interest-only mortgage in South Kensington for an investment banker

Location: South Kensington, London

Loan Amount: £7,000,000

Finance Category: Residential Mortgage

The Story

Fox Davidson were approached by a self-employed investment banker who was looking to purchase a townhouse in central London.

He had existing contacts with private banks but was looking for a more competitive offering.

The client was looking to maximise his borrowing against the purchase whilst keeping the loan interest-only and securing a low rate.

The Challenge

The client was looking for a number of factors, a low longer-term fixed-rate, competitive arrangement fees, and a lender who would take his partnership income into account, which had risen significantly in the most recent year.

The Solution

Fox Davidson were able to secure a five-year fixed-rate at 1.62% with a £1,999 lender arrangement fee.

This loan was arranged at 70% loan-to-value against a purchase price of £10 million, and the whole mortgage was arranged on an interest-only basis, allowing the client maximum flexibility with his finances moving forward.
