Large mortgage loans arranged for client with no taxable income

Case profile
Our client wanted to purchase a new main residence. However, due to the method in which he earned his income it was highly challenging to find a lender willing to take a view on it.

The client was a professional sports trader whose earnings were derived from electronic bets made on betting exchanges for various sporting events.

Although the client had over 7 years' trading history, all the earnings from such activities were not liable for income tax as they were classified as 'bets' by the HMRC. As such, no formal trading accounts existed that reflected the client's total annual earnings, which were in excess of £400,000.

The lack of taxable income accounts, and the nature of the client's work meant that vast majority of lenders were not willing to lend to the client.

Through our considerable range of private bank and niche lender contacts, we were able to source a bespoke solution from a niche lender that was prepared to accept that the client's gross income was required.

The client was required to submit substantial betting trade account history, bank statements, and an accountant's letter, as well as showing a positive balance on his savings accounts at the end of each month.

We secured excellent terms for the client, who was very happy and able to proceed with the purchase of his new home.
