Where can you get an expat mortgage in the UK?

UK high street banks normally require you to be resident in the UK to qualify for a mortgage, however, private lenders are normally much more flexible. This makes them ideal for British expats looking to buy property in the UK.

Private banks offer a range of mortgages for expats on residential and commercial properties, including buy-to-let mortgages.

What are the lending criteria for UK expat mortgages?

Lending criteria for private banks tend to be quite flexible as they normally lend on a case-by-case basis.

This is good for expats as it means issues which would cause problems with high street banks, such as income in a foreign currency or from equity need not be an issue.

For investment properties, many private lenders will want international mortgage borrowers to provide a deposit of at least 25%, although this depends on the lender and your personal circumstances.

With a standard buy-to-let mortgage, you will often be told the monthly rental income must equal around 125-145% of the monthly interest payments. However, private lenders are more flexible and often allow you to use your personal income towards your buy-to-let interest calculation.
