Expat Mortgage Options

Expat Mortgage Options

Do you live overseas and want to buy a property in the UK? Considering your Expat Mortgage Options?

Britons living abroad, either temporarily or permanently, will need to obtain a mortgage from a lender that has chosen to lend to expats.

Typically, expats are looking to invest in buy-to-let property whilst living overseas. As such perhaps to provide an income in retirement or even to live in upon their return.

Whilst fluctuating exchange rates can, at times, provide a good opportunity for investors, it is also true to say that many expats earn better salaries abroad than they would do here in the UK.

A lower cost of living means they have more disposable income and want to invest in UK property.

As an expat are you thinking of entering the Buy-to-Let market?

 If so, firstly seek advice on your tax position and if incorporation (Limited Company) could be right for you.

More and more expat investors are considering entering this market for various reasons. What can a buy-to-let investment offer you?

Interest only mortgage.

Good potential returns on your capital invested.

Potentially better returns than on offer at high street banks.

Above are just some of the reasons why expats are considering a buy-to-let investment. If you are thinking of entering this market, always seek advice on the types of mortgages available that best suit your needs. You will generally need a deposit of at least 25%, this varies from lender to lender but the bigger the deposit the better the deal.
