Below are some useful tips to think when considering purchasing a property in the UK with a mortgage:
- The lending criteria will be based on your long-term employment
If you have just started a new job, this may make lenders more cautious in offering a mortgage, so try and apply when you have been in long-term employment
- Get a decision in principle first before buying a property in the UK
Don’t waste time and money in dealing with estate agents, travel and research until you have secured your decision in principle first
- Some online interest rates may not apply to your circumstances
If you’re looking at online interest rates via a comparison website, please bear in mind these rates may not be suited to Expat mortgages
- Prepare in advance
Be open and honest about your personal circumstances at the outset and be prepared to provide evidence to support your application
- Use a qualified specialist
