The Story

Fox Davidson were approached by a partner in a law firm as he was wishing to purchase a new main residence.

The Challenge

The applicant was a non-equity partner at his firm, meaning he received a base annual draw and also received an element of variable share income on top of this. He submitted tax returns and his income had increased considerably in the most recent year.  His projected income for the following tax year was looking to be at a similar level.

Most lenders will look at tax calculation (SA302) forms from HMRC to ascertain income levels and then average these over the last 2 years.  This did not provide enough affordability for this applicant to borrow the required amount.

The Solution

Fox Davidson requested the applicant obtain a letter from the finance director to provide an overview of his income and an estimated projection of earnings. Fox Davidson were then able to arrange a mortgage at high street rates for the applicant based on the letter provided and the most recent figures.
