Case Study 1

Helping a Client Navigate a Complex Buy-to-Let Remortgage

Challenge: Our client, who owned a semi-commercial property with an office space and a three-bedroom maisonette, approached RHL Unique Financial Solutions seeking a loan to convert the maisonette into two separate two-bedroom flats.

Solution: RHL successfully secured a facility allowing the client to proceed with the conversion project. However, when it came time to refinance with a long-term mortgage the application was declined due to discrepancies between the completed conversion and the approved planning permission.

Action: Recognising the urgency, RHL swiftly explored alternative solutions. Due to the non-compliance with the planning permission, securing a traditional term loan proved challenging. RHL opted for a strategic approach:a.


  1. Securing a bridging loan: RHL arranged a new loan with an alternative lender, providing the client with additional time and resources to complete the conversion according to the approved plans.
  2. Ongoing communication and guidance: RHL maintained close communication with the client, offering expert advice and ensuring they understood the importance of adhering to the planning regulations.

Outcome: Once the conversion was completed in accordance with the planning permission, RHL successfully re-approached the original lender. This time, the client's application for a term loan was approved, providing them with a long-term financing solution.

Unlocking Potential in a Complex Property Purchase

Case Study 5

Navigating a Complex Development Loan Completion

Challenge: Our clients faced a critical situation as the term on their existing development loan was nearing its end, and the property renovations were not fully completed. While the original lender offered an extension, the proposed terms came with significantly higher interest rates and fees, creating a financial burden for the clients.

Solution: Recognising the urgency and potential financial strain, RHL proactively explored alternative solutions. Their in-depth market knowledge and understanding of development financing enabled them to identify a lender willing to accept the partially completed property.


  • Favourable Terms: RHL secured a "Development Exit" product from a new lender, offering significantly lower interest rates and fees compared to the original lender's extension proposal. This provided the clients with substantial cost savings.
  • Extended Flexibility: The new product granted the clients additional time to finalise the property renovations, market it effectively, and secure a buyer. This eliminated the pressure associated with the impending deadline and facilitated a smoother sales process.
  • Successful Completion: With the financial flexibility provided by the new loan, the clients were able to complete the development project, successfully sell the property, and ultimately repay the bridging finance.
