Scenario: Chain Break*

Planning to start a family, John and Kirsty want to move from their current two-bed to a bigger property close to good schools. They find a four-bedroom house, but their own property is tied up in a long chain. Their mortgage adviser helps them secure a regulated bridge. Their old house sells quickly and having arranged a mortgage on their new home, they use the funds to fully repay the regulated bridge with no early repayment charges.

Scenario: Downsizing*

Mr and Mrs Khan have owned their house for 25 years. Their three children have flown the nest and they want to downsize as their property is too big for their current needs. 

They find their dream bungalow, however they do not have enough cash for the deposit and are worried they may lose their new home to a rival homebuyer. Through a mortgage broker, Shawbrook was able to provide the Khan's with 100% of the purchase price, which included 75% LTV secured against the new property, and the difference secured against the property being sold. 

Six months later, the Khan's are happily settled in their bungalow, have completed on the sale of their old property and have paid off their bridging finance.
