Case study: High value mortgage for entrepreneur

Investec Mortgage Intermediaries team

Investec supported an entrepreneur who wanted to buy a unique property in the south west.


The client

Our client recently sold his award-winning business with an annual turnover of over £100m. The sale of business transaction was mainly funded by loan notes and corporate leverage debt.

The challenge

The case presented two challenges: the unusual nature of the property and the complex nature of the client’s income.

The client wanted to purchase a new main residence in a super prime location on the south coast. The unique nature of the asset made it more challenging to estimate a realistic market valuation.

Having sold his business and taken a dramatic reduction in income, Investec had to understand the sales transaction to be able to structure a loan facility that met the clients LTV requirements and satisfied affordability requirements too.

The solution

After careful and detailed risk analysis of the client’s business sale transaction which included various different scenarios, we were able to confirm that the nature of the sale and the performance of the business provided sufficient income to meet affordability requirements.

Investec was also able to commission a highly specialist valuation to undertake an appraisal of the property to ensure it provided appropriate security.

We offered a £7.8m mortgage, on a five-year interest-only basis, with capital reductions made in the early years of the term.
