Are you looking for a large foreign currency mortgage to buy a holiday home?

At MillionPlus Private Finance our clients regularly approach us to ask ‘How can I get a large second mortgage to buy a second home?’ Buying a holiday home, whether at home or overseas, often requires getting a large second mortgage or a multi-million foreign currency mortgage. We regularly arrange million plus mortgages on holiday homes in a variety of foreign currencies through our international network of lenders.

One in ten British adults is now owns a second home; that’s 5.2 million people in the UK and just 3% are buying a second home to rent it out as a holiday let.

Our team is regularly approached by clients looking for a million plus second property mortgage, either to buy a holiday let or to buy a holiday home as an investment.

Often, these large second residential mortgages can be to buy property overseas and therefore need to be large foreign currency mortgages, most commonly million plus euro mortgages or multi-million US dollar mortgages.

Recently, we were approached by a client looking for overseas foreign currency financing to buy a million plus holiday home in Ibiza. He was a multi-million pound property investor with a large portfolio.

However, his employment status meant that securing foreign currency lending was a challenge.

Our client had recently left his job but had been placed on gardening leave, so would receive his usual salary and bonus for the next 12 months.

On paper, this meant that he was unemployed and looking to secure a multi-million pound mortgage. His status meant that most lenders would only be willing to offer 12 month mortgage terms, as his income was only secured for a year.

The MillionPlus Private Finance team secured multi-million euro funding on the foreign currency mortgage through a private banking contact in Spain.

The private bank created a bespoke offer, tailored to the client’s requirements and covering the full million plus euro loan amount.

The lender took a view on the client’s current employment situation and based its offer on his considerable experience and the prospect of his future earnings.

The lender took into account our client’s real estate portfolio and allowed the income from his investment portfolio to service the interest of the loan.

Our client transferred assets to the value of €500,000 to the private bank to create a greater level of comfort and confidence in the deal. However, these funds are accessible at any time and are not pledged to the bank.
