In this case, we were approached by a client in Nigeria who was looking to release some capital from their unencumbered London property to part-fund another UK property purchase. The client only needed a short-term loan which would eventually be repaid in a lump sum from funds owed to their business. 

The client is a resident of Nigeria and works in the oil and gas industry, so their profile was considered high-risk by many lenders. As well as this being the leading cause for concern, the property is also owned in a Hong Kong SPV, which most lenders need to become more familiar with and, therefore, cannot get comfortable with, even with a legal opinion.

The client needed a flexible lender and loan that would allow full repayment with no penalties.

Paige secured the client a competitive bridge loan at 0.89% per month for ten months and also approached a lender that had no requirement for the client to fly to the UK or be in the UK to sign the loan documents.
