UK Expat Mortgages

Countries We Can Support

Expat Locations where we can help source UK mortgage finance  

Your country of residence as a UK expat can have a significant impact on the success of your UK Mortgage Application, which lender you should approach and the mortgage rates and fees you'll be met with.

When looking to buy or refinance UK property, the choice of lenders who will deal with you will depend on where you are based as well as your circumstances.

Some UK high street banks have international arms which provide solutions to those living outside the UK, however, the criteria for each of these lenders will differ. 

Seeking the advice and guidance of an experienced Expat Mortgage broker can make the process of securing an expat mortgage much easier.

Why does your country of residence matter in your UK mortgage application?

  • Your expat status can be an administrative burden for lenders, especially if you’re earning in a foreign currency.
  • Overseas income is more difficult for banks to verify the source of, and it also poses a higher risk for money laundering. This makes expat mortgages more expensive, and harder to find.

That said, many lenders are set up to deal with expats, and if you're based in the US or United Arab Emirates (UAE), there is a good number to choose from.

But other countries are less commonly seen by lenders or are associated with higher risks. In addition, UK banks are reluctant to lend to borrowers in countries that aren’t on the international Financial Action Task Force (FATF) of countries that meet the highest standards of measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.
