More of us are choosing to purchase a property abroad for a holiday home or for investment purposes. In both cases this will usually require an overseas mortgage.
Our expertise and experience is in creating an individual solution for your personal requirements, whether you are buying a property in France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, the US, Australia or elsewhere.
We can assist in over 50 countries in the world. As a specialist overseas mortgage broker, we have access to banks in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
Applying for an overseas mortgage is very similar to applying for a domestic mortgage in that the lender will look closely at your income, assets, expenditure and credit history, and assess you accordingly.
The type of mortgage arranged on an overseas property, and the eventual size of the loan offered, will depend on the country the property is based in, and whether it is secured against the equity in your UK home.
The deposit required on overseas mortgages tends to be higher than on a standard UK mortgage, although this will often depend on the country you plan to buy in. Because even large overseas mortgages tend to run over a shorter time period than their UK counterparts, they generally involve higher repayments.
Whatever and wherever the property you wish to buy, we can help you decide whether you should take out a sterling or foreign currency mortgage, and work with our network of lenders to find you the right mortgage for your circumstances.
We understand the complex nature of buying overseas and can ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible, whether it be an investment property or your dream holiday home.
Think carefully before securing other debts against your home or property.
