Live Work Mortgages

Live work mortgages are specific mortgages for properties that have both a live and work sections. We appreciate that the structure and complexity of Live Work mortgages are generally misunderstood by the majority of lenders or brokers. Typically, clients we successfully assist tell us of the difficulty they have experienced in trying to arrange competitive finance on a Live Work unit.

Often they express their frustration in finding an appropriate lender or are a little unsure how to start their search despite these properties being the ideal solution for business owners looking to save money.

Usually we find that clients seeking these types of mortgages have more specialised finance needs and we are able to provide personalised advice on the appropriate lenders to meet those requirements. They may have spoken to a number of brokers without success, before making contact with us.

“It was quite an easy decision to make….the run of the mill mortgage brokers really were not going to be able to help me on this one. I would recommend Capital Fortune to any one asking and I do so too.” Joe Crosby, Golders Green

Clients we successfully help in similar situations, typically tell us of their annoyance at the current restrictions on obtaining a mortgage a HMO. They usually have a healthy deposit for a purchase or significant equity to undertake a re-mortgage. They find it difficult to understand why the vast majority of lenders will not consider their individual circumstances when securing the workspace can often reduce overheads as bills, mortgage payments and other costs will only apply to one property

They confirm the additional problems they come up against, if they want to rent out the property and may be uncertain where to begin.

They generally are looking for appropriate guidance to obtain the available deals in the market. They frequently seek to ensure that they do not fall foul of the lenders conditions or invalidate the property insurance given the property’s semi commercial status and who may be living and/or working at the property.

Our Live Work mortgage service is based not only on knowing UK lender’s criteria but also our ability to access the available private banking and bespoke lending solutions. Such lenders will often take a more holistic approach to the Live Work unit and will look at the mortgage as more than a standard transactional deal.

“They arranged a re-mortgage for us…. which was unusual and certainly must have been difficult. It went through smoothly, more smoothly than any other mortgage I've taken out.” RH, Stanmore

Live Work mortgage applications often require a greater degree of negotiation with national lenders, the underwriters, their panel surveyors and property valuers. Clients we successfully help, also appreciate there is a limitation on the number of providers in this specialist market and understand the fact that many do not openly advertise their available products direct to customers.

“Capital Fortune are a blessing...I feel like I’ve got the best rate on the market and a very personable and friendly service.” Reuben, South London, SE27
