Hope Capital Save Borrower Huge Default Costs, with Tailored Re-bridge!
The client needed a re-bridge of a current bridge but was being pushed to redeem by the existing lender with no extension and the threat of receivers. Furthermore, the client’s solicitor did not have full property information and needed to investigate if the property had listed building consent and full residential consent, as this was what the valuation had been based on.
Even though the client – an award-winning architect – had owned the property for two years and had already fully refurbished it, there was some adverse press about the legals of another project he was working on.
We had a video call with the client and investigated the legal status of matters. We were happy that it had no impact on our security and were happy to go ahead and refinance his project. He needed 75% to clear existing debt and needed maximum net, so we agreed to retain four months and client to service two months to maximise the net for him.
The client re-bridged with Hope Capital, saving them several £1000’s in default interest and other costs, on to a facility that was tailored to his specific needs. This allowed the client to put the property on the market and realise the return on his investment and still maximise his profit under the circumstances.
