When a broker’s client agreed to purchase a property at auction via a standard BTL mortgage, no one anticipated it wouldn’t be completed in time.
Unfortunately that’s exactly the problem they were faced with. After agreeing to buy the property, and securing with a deposit, the end of the 28 day period was close and still with no mortgage offer.
Dan Yendall-Collings, senior underwriter at HFBS says: “Thankfully the client had managed to secure a 10 day extension agreed with the auctioneers. We did require a valuation as the property was boarded up and appeared uninhabitable. Thankfully the cash valuation came in as we expected enabling us to release funds immediately. We did this all within the auctioneers extension with two days to spare!”
HFBS approved the funding immediately issuing an offer pack subject to valuation.
The deal was completed within seven working days and provided over a 12 month term at 1.1% per month.
Dan goes on to say: “The client was relieved and happy that they could acquire the investment property and progress with works as originally planned. The alternative would have been to walk away and lose the deposit that he paid on the day, which would have been tragic! We’re pleased to have been able to save the deal, and the investment, and very much looking forward to seeing the development completed.”
