BUY TO LET MORTGAGE FOR FOREIGN NATIONALS

Changes To The Buy To Let Mortgage Market

There have been a number of changes to the buy to let mortgage market that have affected the way lenders consider mortgage applications.

Paid In Foreign Currency

If you are a foreign national looking for a buy to let mortgage, you may find it difficult to secure a mortgage with a high street lender.

The European Commission introduced the Mortgage Credit Directive, which ensured any foreign currency mortgage lender had to have an arrangement in place to limit the exchange rate risk to which the consumer is exposed.

As a result, the majority of lenders withdrew their foreign currency mortgage services; lenders argued that foreign currency mortgages are no longer cost effective.

If you are a foreign national paid in foreign currency and you need a mortgage, call us to explore your mortgage options.

Paid In Sterling

There are lenders that are prepared to provide mortgages to foreign nationals. However, recent regulation changes introduced by the Prudential Regulation Authority have altered the way lenders consider buy to let mortgage applications.

Lenders will implement an in-depth income stress test to ensure that applicants can afford mortgage repayments in the event that the interest rate increases to 5.5%.

For applicants with multiple properties, lenders will review the applicant’s entire property portfolio to ensure all of the applicant’s properties are profitable. Lenders will not provide a buy to let mortgage to foreign nationals with buy to let properties that are not profitable.

Lenders will require applicants to have a rental coverage ratio of up to 145% for standard buy to lets and 170% for houses in multiple occupation.

If you are unable to meet the criteria set by traditional lenders, it may still be possible to secure a buy to let mortgage. Call us on +44 203 900 4322 or fill in our callback form.
