Customer story

This landlord approached Clever as he wanted to renovate the 17th Century barn on the estate where he lived and turn it into a wedding venue – whilst consolidating various unsecured debts. He wanted to raise finance on his property in trust, which was going through a mortgage product transfer at the time as well.

As the customer’s main income was from the trust, his proof of income was provided by SA302s. The fact he was a non-owner occupier meant we used our knowledge to source a lender which would consider the case.

As we could provide sight of the legal agreement in place, Together accepted the trust as income. The landlord was offered his second charge buy-to-let mortgage of £75,000 on an interest-only, five-year fixed rate. With this he consolidated his unsecured debt and renovated the barn into a super wedding venue.
