The client in this case had an existing portfolio of 23 residential properties worth around £8m, but each was mortgaged to a separate buy-to-let lender.

Funding requirement: the client wanted to simplify their financing arrangements by having one lender across the whole portfolio plus they wanted to capital raise to allow them to purchase further investment properties.

Facility provided: we were able to offer a range of possible solutions from 60% LTV up to 75% LTV, but the client decided that a 65% facility was the best mix of gearing and pricing as we were able to secure this at a rate of circa 3% and with a 1% lender fee.
