Most expats have a strong desire to buy or retain ownership of a residential property in the UK due to ever increasing property prices. Even with the latest setback of the Brexit vote property in the UK has remained strong with values seemingly rising all the time.
Certain parts of the country are stagnating in terms of increasing but overall the UK market is as vibrant as ever. There is still a lack of housing which makes the buy-to-let market very attractive to expats who want a foothold in the UK and achieve a return on their capital. If you look at the interest rates on offer at the major banks it’s little wonder why expats don’t see savings as a way forward.
Whatever reasons you may have for considering purchasing a house or flat in the UK, the good news is that there are lenders who are more than willing to offer expats mortgages. Many providers don’t even advertise the fact.
The expat mortgage market is very complex and you should seek professional advice as to what product best meets your needs. We have a select number of companies offering very favourable rates which are tailored to suit most needs, including buy to let.
