Case Study – UK Expat Couple Successfully Navigates Property Purchase

UK Expat Couple Successfully Navigates Property Purchase

Property Auction Finance Case Study

In October 2021, a couple living in Singapore, but originally from Southend-On-Sea wanted to enter the Buy to Let Market. As first-time buyers, they approached Liquid Expat Mortgages for assistance in taking their initial steps onto the property ladder. Their goal was to purchase a home for refurbishment which had come up at an auction in their home town. The property was a two-bedroom terraced house with a suggested price of £185,000. It needed compete refurbishment.

Working on behalf of the borrowers, we arranged for an independent RICS survey, and subsequently, a gross loan offer of £125,000 was made to the couple and they successfully secured the property at auction for £155,000.

To finance the purchase, the couple borrowed money from family members. To assist their renovation project seven months’ interest was deducted from the gross loan advance. This meant that the couple did not have to pay any interest for the first seven months of their loan, allowing them to allocate more funds towards the renovation work. Over the following seven months, the couple instructed contractors to renovate the property. Upon completion of the renovation, a 25-year BTL mortgage was obtained, and the property was valued at £229,000.
