Summary

Our client sought a sophisticated refinance, to consolidate debt across their £15m real estate holdings. Based in the Channel Islands, the portfolio comprised of mixed use assets but over 70% of these by value were medical use. The client was hoping for 60-65% LTV, despite the concentration of the portfolio towards this lead asset.

The large medical centre made up the bulk of the portfolio value and received healthy income from 20 tenants. Leases varied from one to 22 years and the WAULT across the portfolio was only around 5 years. Given the client required a long term lending solution, we were delighted that our modelling secured a ten year term at 2.85% over 3 month LIBOR. Not only could the viability of the lend be demonstrated, but the high quality of the tenants and demand for professional medical services within the local market.

Aside from the margin, a low amortisation profile was agreed and the debt was secured for pan island use.
