    IO & minimum income query

    IO & minimum income query 11th Jul 19 at 7:37 PM
    We are currently exploring options to raise funds, one of which is against our home.

    In the past we have had interest only mortgages but the criteria around these seem to be ever changing so I wondered if anyone could offer up to date knowledge on this scenario?

    Also since our last mortgage DH has become a shareholder (30%) of a Ltd company which changes the scenario from him being employed to self employed - correct me if I am wrong.

    His income is all PAYE and is made up of salary @ £50k, and a bonus which for the last tax year was £100k and the year prior £90k.

    I was looking at Barclay’s as we seem to fit the criteria. Basically, can you confirm if they will accept his self assessment details and so view his income as for the past 2 years as £150k & £140k, as opposed to £50k?

    I know we need to seek independent advice but just wanted to see if generally speaking interest only would be an option for us.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can work their way through my muddled question!

    Barclays need 2 years self employment evidence, so if he has only recently become self employed, it does not fit criteria, unless their criteria has changed, we try to avoid barclays so I am not that up on their current criteria.

    He has been employed by the same company since he was 18. He became a shareholder 6 years ago. Apologies I was trying to give enough information without an unnecessary wall of text!

    I appreciate the reply, many thanks.

    I use barclays quite a lot and recently did an interest only with them.

    Income requirement was 75k

    As long as you have 2 yrs with him being self employed and tye average of the 2 yrs salary and dividends being more than 75k then it should fit

    The purpose of the funds being released may have a bearing on the decision.

    Luckily Barclays are one of the few tht allow lending to repay a tax bill.

    I just checked on this as Barclays website doesnt exclude capital raising for a tax bill but another site that collates lender criteria says they wont do it.

    I called the broker support and the girl initially said they would do it and then went off to check with an underwriter who confirmed that Barclays will not lend for purposes of paying a tax bill.

    Bit of a shame as the website is a bit misleading

    Looks like another plan is needed!

    Hang on.

    Who is paying this inheritance tax bill? Presumably the estate has insufficient cash resources?

    Usually in such circumstances, the beneficiaries purchase the asset from the estate (eg property) so the mortgage is being used to purchase equity (assuming the beneficiary will inherit a share) then the cash in the estate can be used to settle the tax bill?

    That is exactly the case. It is complex, I was perhaps trying to over simplify things. There were 2 related deaths close together. We had been given IHT figures which we had sufficient funds to add to estate funds to clear the bill. Then the bill increased, and other bills appeared. I think the property has already been transferred (or at least we have been charged for it) I can get DH to look into that on Monday.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to throw ideas into the mix.
