What was the situation?
My professional sportsman client and their partner were looking to purchase their first property in south west London. It was a lovely terraced property, that offered enough room for their family to grow in the future.
What was the issue?
Due to nature of my client’s profession, many lenders would only take the mortgage term up to age 35, viewing this as an assumed retirement age.
The second applicant had only recently become a contractor also in a change of employment status, so many lenders would not accept their income.
What was the process?
Using prior knowledge of securing finance for this type of client, and my network of lender relationships, I was able to discuss my clients application with underwriters directly at the lenders who could understand and appreciate nature of my clients income.
One of the key aspects of gaining lender confidence was clearly presenting my clients plan to generate income post current professional sports career.
What was the solution?
In discussing the case with the underwriters, I was able to secure a mortgage that extended beyond my client’s professional sports career, therefore giving them ample time to build an income once their sports career had ended.
This allowed the clients to purchase their dream, safe in the knowledge that the mortgage term ending won’t be a factor.
