InterBay Commercial completes £23.7 million refinance deal on 95 unit buy to let portfolio
November 21 2019
InterBay Commercial, part of specialist mortgage provider and retail savings group OneSavings Bank, was contacted by Coreco Specialist Finance on behalf of two experienced property developers seeking refinance. The loan application was based on refinancing their existing 95 unit buy to let portfolio and capital raising for further investment opportunities, totalling just over £23.7 million.
The properties were held by two UK limited companies which in turn were owned by a UK family trust with most of the properties held for over 10 years.
Due to the loan size and complexity of the company set up, the case was brought to InterBay’s transactional credit committee. This process helps give early indication as to whether an application will be accepted and allows time to action further evidence requests whilst still enabling the client’s deadline to be met. This factor was especially important as the timing of the deal was absolutely vital to ensure a clean exit from the existing lender.
Adrian Moloney, Sales Director, OneSavings Bank, said, “This deal took months of hard work to pull together and due to that very detailed preparation, we were able to move very quickly when it was ready to go. Paris Smith, our legal representatives on this case, were pivotal in helping to get this application across the line and worked tirelessly across all the challenges thrown their way. InterBay has a very close business relationship with Coreco and we know that our teams work extremely hard to ensure the client achieves a positive customer outcome.”
Julian Ingall, Director, Coreco Specialist Finance, commented, “This transaction was very complicated on a number of fronts and involved many teams working closely to ensure every element was expertly assessed and progressed.
Although there are other lenders that put their hands up for these types of deal, rarely do they have the tenacity or experience to make it happen. The team at InterBay Commercial go the extra mile for the client and we’re always impressed with their attention to detail and professionalism at every stage.
Relationships are so important in this business, and having successfully completed a number of similar size deals, we had no doubt that InterBay would be the ones to get this deal successfully over the line."
