Interest Cover Ratio (ICR) & Top Slicing Case Study

This is a great case study on how Liquid Expat Mortgages helped a self-employed expat by using top slicing to successfully secure them a remortgage.

The scenario.
Ms. Foster, a self-employed UK expat in Hong Kong, sought to remortgage an existing property in London. With higher interest rates and her fluctuating self-employed income made it difficult to meet the ICR requirements for a standard remortgage.

Here’s how it worked.
Liquid Expat Mortgages used “top slicing” to consider Ms. Foster’s overall financial situation. In this case we considered her savings and investments, to demonstrate her ability to cover the mortgage payments. On this basis we successfully secured a remortgage for her London property.
