What are the best £3million mortgage products in the UK?

We asked our brokers to describe the ‘best mortgages’ available if someone wants to borrow £3 million pounds, and the answers we received are below. These mortgages will be available for higher and lower amounts subject to status.

‘Best’ isn’t always about the interest rate, it depends on your circumstances, your income and your plans.

We look at Loan to Value (LTV), Early Repayment Charges (ERC’s) Assets Under Management (AUM) as well as private banking and bridging finance.

In exceptional circumstances we can arrange up to 95% loan to value. Reserved for very high earners from sports, entertainment and business leaders in their fields. There has to be a reason why this is required and the loan to value will need to be reduced rapidly with agreed over payments.

100% loan to value can be arranged if cash or other assets are lodged with the bank as additional security. This is useful for Non-Doms, Foreign Nationals or those who have recently sold business, for example.

With no or no provable little income

Private Bank based on Asset or Net Worth

This lender is also great if you have no income but a large amount in Investments or other assetrs. Instead of needing to show income multiples, as you would with a high street bank, if you have over £3m of net assets (mostly investments) then the lender can use the High Net Worth exemption rules to justify the mortgage.
