Arc & Co. Secures £1.7M BTL Refinance for 7 Flats in Chertsey

Deal breakdown:

  • £1,764,000

  • 5 year fixed @ 3.99%

  • 80% LTV

This capital raise enables our client the acquisition of future development sites. 80% LTV mitigates relatively harsh valuation due to lack of up to date comparables.  This allows our client the advantage on a sale to keep the net proceeds.

Arc & Co.'s Nikita Nigai Featured in Forbes Kazakhstan!

Why the Acquisition of London Property is Still Advantageous and Profitable

‘Currently, the UK finance market can offer a solution for almost every client. If you do not wish to pay a large lump-sum payment straight away, it is worth to think about the mortgage which is being offered nowadays at 1.5% and goes up to 75% LTV with the term from 2 to 35 years. The property, in this case, would be the only collateral. In the past year we have noticed extensive interest from Kazakhs investors, where, in most cases, clients acquired an investment - BTL properties. It should be noted, that sometimes rental income can cover your mortgage interest payments, which is another advantage/argument to use the mortgage today.’

Arc & Co. Secures Loan for Refurbishment & Ground Up Works for Bungalows in Berkshire


Arc & Co. advised on the £220K loan for the refurbishment of a bungalow in Berkshire and the ground up development of a new bungalow adjoining to the existing.

Bridge lenders do not favour ground up works, therefore we were keen to collaborate with Think Property Finance who were on hand to help.

This deal was even more interesting as the borrower was able to JV with a land owner who was completely separate from the transaction. We were able to use their land as security.

Client: Private Client

Requirement: A total loan of £66,280,000 for 4 branded, city-centre hotels located in the UK and Scotland

The loan consisted of both senior and junior debt; with a combined loan-to-value (LTV) of 80% and a blended margin of 3.4%. The loan is for a 5-year term and on an interest-only basis.

Arc & Co. Secured a Quick Turnaround Mortgage with Fixed 1.9% Rate for 5 Years

Screenshot 2019-06-13 at 09.51.46.png

Our clients were looking to purchase a new build detached property in Northern Ireland for £377,500.  The vendors of the property were pushing to complete within 4 weeks since they had previously sold the property, but it fell through late in the process. Despite the time crunch, we were able to secure a mortgage offer from Barclays within 2 weeks of the application being submitted, and completion occurred within 4 weeks. We secured a rate of 1.9% fixed for 5 years with Barclays for a loan size of £237,000. Clients were Directors of two companies and had just started a third.  The case was also falling short on affordability, however after submitting the accounts to the underwriter it was signed off as affordable.

Gareth Briggs was very responsive and helpful. I ended up getting a fixed deal that was lower rate than my usual bank while still having a good permitted overpayment allowance.
