I applied in November to refinance one of my several properties. A huge amount of information was needed of my portfolio and some of the data required didn’t fit the pre-loaded application form.

I therefore completed what could be captured online and then completed the rest by hand. All the information sought from me was received – and an offer in principle was achieved. Hay ho!

There was no time however to finalise everything before my Christmas holiday so I suspended the application til the New Year. I called the company yesterday to check if the mortgage deal was still available. It is, but I have to re-apply for the decision in principle.

The company said they’d resend me the information I sent them in November and then I could just check it and resubmit it.

I opened up the email to see that I’d also been sent their internal correspondence:

Dear ….

New app attached, client has decided to send everything individually, some written, some typed. Apologies for her stupidness!!

Hmmmm…. I’m just a poor lowly landlord of a multi-million £ portfolio. Only idiots have jobs, eh?

Email them and tell them that they have 1 day to agree in principle based on the info they have or their email gets published.

It looks as thought the email is gone to the mortgage company from your mortgage advisor (intermediary). Are you able to or are you allowed to mention from/who - as a matter of principle, I only deal with companies that genuinely appreciate and respect what I do in the BTL sector!
