Expert team builds strong partnership

We recently supported a professional landlord with a refinance deal to purchase a semi-commercial property in North London. The value of this interest-only, semi-commercial loan was £1,295,000 at 71% LTV (including fees) for a term of 25 years.

Already an existing Shawbrook customer, with a large overall exposure of £8.9 million, they once again turned to us for funding to purchase a five-storey Victorian property. The property consists of a commercial space found on the ground and lower ground floors, featuring a pair of mid-terrace shops, and a 6-unit HMO on the upper three floors. The property also includes a roof extension and basement.

We worked closely with DAS Finance Ltd to understand the customer’s complex needs and deliver a practical funding solution that allowed the customer to repay a bridging loan used to purchase the security originally, and subsequently move onto longer-term financing.

We have long supported this customer with specialist finance solutions to expand their portfolio, which has evolved from smaller Buy-to-Let residential properties to include this new commercial asset, which is the largest of the portfolio.

“Shawbrook's commitment to understanding our client’s unique needs and delivering tailored finance solutions has been instrumental in fostering a long and successful partnership"
