We are particular specialists in taking care of people looking to make a new purchase or refinance to release equity for Expatriate London Mortgages.

Expat Residential Mortgages In The UK

As a mortgage broker that focuses mainly on expats we can arrange financing for expats returning to the UK or expats looking to have their own residential property that they can stay in when they return to the UK for a holiday or vacation. There are some special terms that the lender likes to see for a residential mortgage which we will be happy to discuss with any potential inquiries from either expat clients, clients based in the UK or overseas based international clients looking to move to the United Kingdom to live.

Expat Global  Life Insurance Cover

In our dealings with clients for mortgages we also specialize are just one of the areas we assist potential enquirers and we also provide expat life insurance to cover any unforeseen eventuality in life by offering expat life and critical illness cover. Having the right level of expat life insurance cover is vital and we can carry out a life insurance assessment whilst preparing your mortgage agreement in principle for you.  Everybody expatriate has a different set of individual circumstances that are clearly unique, and your cover will need to reflect this. For example, an accident in the family may result in higher medical costs for non-nationals depending on where you are, as will extras, such as an interpreter, if required. For global expats, it is likely to be important to arrange insurance policies that have international coverage that enable you to move countries without having to re-new your life insurance cover. Always inform your insurance company if you move to a posting in a new country as the rate, level and type of cover may need adjusting. In effect, this could mean changing or updating your policy every time you move. An easier solution could be to take out a portable policy that can move with you, wherever you are in the world. Life Insurance provides a vital protection against the impact of unexpected events and should be tailor-made to reflect you and your family’s needs and circumstances.

UK Investment Property

As inner London becomes increasingly less affordable, young professionals are beginning to move to towns within commutable distance of the capital. With regards to property investment, will 2018 be the year of the commuter town or will the northern cities such as Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool show more favorable returns that that shown of London over the past 3 years.  UK Investment Property property for overseas expatriate investors has always been a very good investment choice because of the growth potential.  The London property investment market has been very popular because of the growth in the London market from overseas buyers over the last few years.

Can i get a UK mortgage as an expat based overseas?

Getting a UK mortgage as an expat living outside the UK can be tricky as most lenders will perceive you as higher risk borrowers ecause you dont have an up to date  credit history or maybe no credit history at all. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of mortgage providers who will offer you a mortgage whether you’re moving into your first UK property, remortgaging or buying to let as an  investment property.

Can i get a UK mortgage as a non UK citizen buying a property in the UK?

Yes you can get a mortgage in the UK even if you dont hold  a UK passport and do not live there. The UK housing market has always had a very open and transparent structure allowing virtually any nationality to buy property in the UK.

How much deposit will i need to obtain an expat mortgage for the United Kingdom?

For a buy to let property you will be looking to need a deposit of 25% to place down. For a residential property you would like to keep as your own home you will be needing to place down a deposit of 20%

Can i get a mortgage if i am paid in Euros or USD?

Yes you can get a UK mortgage as an expat earning in Euro’s or USD. Lenders all have different criteria but in general expat lenders understand that many applicants will be paid in currencies different form the GBP british pound sterling. Some clients have been known to be remunerated in 3 or 4 different currencies at the same time.

How long does it take to put an expat mortgage in place from first contact to mortgage being completed

Expat mortgages take a litte bit longer than if you were based and arranging the mortgage from the UK.  Because the lender doesnt have the opportunity of performing a credit check they work on full affordability assesment. Normally you would ideally need 10 to 12 weeks to complete the mortgage through to completion. Some banks have been known to state that they will only look at offering mortgages for applications with 6 months to complete. This is a little strange and rare but it means they dont have to rush the process and they generally have small teams working on the mortgages.

How long do you need to be living in the UK to secure a mortgage?

You dont have to be based in the UK to be able to secure a mortgage. Out expat mortgage team have been helping clients for over 10 years securing mortgages for clients based outside of the UK.

Do you only offer expat mortgages for the United Kingdom?

No we offer mortgages for expats for a range of different countries. We arrange mortgages at present for Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand,  Hong Kong, France, Spain, Germany, Canada and the United States (USA)

Fees: Investment property purchases because of their investment role tend to attract higher fees charged by the lender and the broker. Here at Premier Expat Mortgages we understand the case of keeping these as low as possible. With broker fees of up to 2% and lender arrangement fees as high as 3% we aim to work with the client to save them monies wherever possible. Get in touch and tell us what you broker is charging and we guarantee to beat them with a lower broker fee.
