Insurance Case Study
In May 2017 I was referred to a Dentist who required a new mortgage facility.
Following an initial review of both the current mortgage and the clients insurances, I discovered that some of the policies were outdated, and since these are regularly improved by a variety of providers this should always be assessed as part of the remortgage process.
Previously the client had been sold an Income Protection Policy that was in excess of what his earnings could support, as typically around 60% of gross personal income is the cover limit with an income protection policy. He was therefore effectively ‘over insured’ and paying for a policy that would not pay out the full benefit amount if he ever needed to make a claim. In simple terms the client was paying too much for a product that was not fit for purpose.
I provided him with a new Income Protection Policy that is aligned with his current income as per his SA302 figures, and also upgraded his Life & Critical Illness policy to a more comprehensive cover for him and his family.
Complex Mortgage Case Study
A Dentist was referred in relation to a £465,000 remortgage of his private property located in Leeds.
The client wanted to raise an additional £55,000 for some home improvements.
My client is self employed via a limited company structure and therefore a statutory director.
Following a tax adjustment from the company accountant the profitability of the business had been depressed which made the remortgage a challenge.
The client had been informed by another advisor that the remortgage with an additional advance was not feasible under these circumstances.
Thankfully having access to the whole of market for mortgage lenders and understanding each of their lending criteria, I was able to place this case with a lender who had a commercial long-term view of business and the funds were secured.
