Our client had a very good profile. However it was a bit difficult because he had withdrawn less funds from his Self-Employed activity than he had the previous years.
French mortgages are calculated on a DEBT TO INCOME ratio which generally cannot exceed 30-33%. That means that the total of your monthly commitments (personal loans, car loans, student loans, mortgages or rent) cannot exceed more than 30-33% of your monthly income.
Our client’s debt ratio actually reached 40%.
Thanks to our panel of banks, we managed to get THE French bank that would allow a debt ratio to exceed the 33% limit and go up to 45% depending on the profile, all this without requiring Assets Under Management (or collateral). The client ended up with a 80% loan to value mortgage (2,861,600 €) for a fixed rate of 2.54% on a repayment basis over 20 years.
Cerise sur le gâteau, we negotiated the bank fees to… 0€!
