Swedish entrepreneur lands in Scottish mansion.

·         Lender type: International Private Bank 

The borrower had moved from Sweden to Loch Lomond and needed to refinance his house in order to release funds to renovate the B listed building, enabling it to then become his main residence. The property was a substantial period property previously utilised as a youth hostel. 

The borrower, an ultra-high net worth individual and foreign national, had no UK income to declare and so had to utilise his global income. This required the private bank to carry out extensive translation and information gathering from various EU countries, to ensure he was complying with various rules and regulations, and complying with lender affordability calculations. This was in addition to the recently tightened money laundering regulations. 

Mark Reidy was called by the borrowers secretary as she was made aware of Conduit Finance from our website after a search of advisers who had experience sourcing finance through private banks. Mark approached a number of banks with the objective being secure a competitive refinance package to release £1,000,000 of capital from the property. These funds were used to repay the overseas directors loan – originally used to buy the property – and the remained of the funds were used for full renovation of the property.

After experiencing our service and our access to Private Bank mortgage lenders, the client said;
