Mortgage For Older Tenant-In-Common

Area
South London
Capital Raised
£200K

Experienced property owners can find – perversely – that their age counts against them with some mortgage lenders. And other factors can also prove too challenging for creditors.

The Scenario

Our client owned a mortgage-free £1.25M property in Crystal Palace, south London, divided into a studio flat, two one-bedroom flats and a garden flat, with four tenants, earning a rental income of £41,000 a year.

He wanted to mortgage it to raise £200,000 to pay off the mortgage on another BTL property, pay off some credit cards and spend £11,000 replacing all the windows on the Crystal Palace house to meet the new EPC rating requirements (it was currently rated E).

The quirks of this case: the client was 71, and he owned the property as tenants in common (TIC) with his wife and daughter.

The Solution

Many lenders are reluctant to lend to older clients, and don’t like the added complication of tenants in common. 

We found him a lender who is willing to work with clients aged up to 85 and is open-minded about TIC. Classing the property as an HMO they were willing to offer a very favourable 5-year fixed rate of 3.75% on an interest-only mortgage.
