Application for loan of £1,295,000 at 85% LTV

  • One of the applicants owned and ran a successful insurance company. They had decided to pay themselves low dividends and the keep cash in the company bank account. The size of loan they wanted wouldn’t have been possible under our standard loan terms as their assessable income (salary plus dividends) would have limited the loan we could offer.
  • When reviewing the case we were able to use the average of the last two years’ net profit after tax (NPAT) and latest salary to achieve the loan amount required.
  • Due to their excellent affordability status of the applicants we were able to apply a loan to income multiple of 5x their combined income; which is higher than our standard terms. We were also able to agree to exceed our standard loan limits, due to the high quality of the application as a whole.
