Re-Mortgage for UK Expat

Re-Mortgage For UK Expat. Expats are re-mortgaging to free up cash.

 Expat mortgage business is very buoyant currently. Especially the re-mortgage area as expats look to released locked capital within their UK properties.

A recent report shows the average amount released currently stands at over £40,000 per case as of the end of March this year and the number of re-mortgages rose by 18.5% year to date.

The report shows February and March witnessed a very strong month for mortgage lending within the expat community.

Our director of operations commented “It would seem expats have re-mortgaged their current UK property to raise funding for further purchases within the buy-to-let market”.

There are some very good re-mortgage deals on offer currently with good interest rates being available. If you are considering a re-mortgage, it may well be prudent to explore what fixed deals are on offer as at some stage interest rates are likely to rise.
