Property investors often turn to us when they’re in need of fast funding. This could be due to a chain falling through, a looming auction deadline, or a rare opportunity that won’t last for long. An example of the latter emerged recently, as in investor approached us for help with a probate sale.

The probate system is the legal process of managing a person’s estate once they die. Property usually makes up a large portion of a person’s estate and often, the parties involved will want to sell real estate on. Probate properties can show up in estate agent windows and while they can be lucrative for investors, they’ll need a lot of due diligence.

An investor, coming to us via a company, planned to invest in multiple probate properties at once. They needed access to funding quickly. The traditional mortgage process wouldn’t allow them to complete in time. With this in mind our underwriter, Kieron Coote, worked quickly to get everything lined up and ready for action.

Sorting out complications asap

Kieron had to address potential delays from the outset. During the initial background checks, a possible roadblock emerged in the form of an alert. To make sure the process wasn’t slowed down, Kieron immediately jumped on the issue and confirmed that the identified issue wasn’t even related to our client.

Moving forward, we had to address the fact that the borrower was purchasing two probate properties at once, which could have complicated things further. To ensure the situation continued at pace, Kieron organised to have both properties valued on the same day.

The client’s wider goals were also assessed quickly to get the deal over the line. Kieron established the properties held a lot of rental potential and following the valuations, he worked to make sure the funding costs could be easily serviced. With these elements sorted, alongside a solid exit strategy, we got the funding issued with plenty of time, allowing the client to move ahead with the purchases.
