Loosing Property Auction Deposit Wasn’t An Option

Loosing Property Auction Deposit Wasn’t An Option

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.

Loosing Property Auction Deposit Wasn’t An OptionHolme Finance Bridging Solutions were approached in the hope of rescuing the deal by approving and funding a 69,000 bridging loan quickly.

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.”

INHERITANCE CONUNDRUM SOLVED BY HFBS

It isn’t everyday you inherit a house, but with the requirement to spend a lot of money on its derelict state the benefactor didn’t know where to turn when her bank refused to advance a loan for refurbishment works.

Thankfully a broker approached Holme Finance Bridging Solutions (HFBS) on the benefactor’s behalf requesting funding to enable the semi-derelict property to be transformed for a quick sale.

Dan Yendall-Collings, senior underwriter at HFBS says: “Our broker’s client had been let down by her bank who had refused to approve her application or compromise on her catch 22 situation. A mortgage was refused based on the fact she couldn’t provide evidence of meeting monthly payments and the property being in a semi-derelict state wasn’t habitable.”

The benefactor had no intention of becoming a landlord, and had no desire to live in the property but couldn’t afford to maintain the house, so after the refusal of a loan from her bank she looked for alternative funding.

Dan continues to say: “In consultation with local estate agents the client was advised that with a limited amount of investment it could achieve a sale price of £300,000, £100,000 above it’s current valuation of £200,000 as semi-derelict property. We did need a full valuation purely down to the current state of the property. But thankfully the valuation confirmed that spending just £50,000 would transform the property into a mortgageable asset where a quick sale would likely be achieved.

HFBS completed a full valuation, which confirmed the property in its current state to be worth £200,000. With a quote from the builders of £50,000, and confirmation of a four-week turnaround, HFBS were happy to advance £50,000 as a net loan for up to 12 months giving her time to complete the works and achieve a sale.

HFBS issued a £50,000 bridging loan over a 12-month term at 1.45% per month.
