Frequently Asked Questions

Young couple getting keys to property
Can I buy a House in the UK from Abroad?

Yes, it is possible to buy UK property from abroad. Many individuals and investors purchase property in the UK while residing in other countries for various reasons, such as investment, vacation homes, or future relocation plans.

You may be a British expat living overseas or a foreign national looking to diversify your investment portfolio. Either way, it’s quite easy to purchase property in the UK as a non-resident. The challenges begin when seeking property finance while living abroad, but preparation is key, and sourcing international mortgage finance is doable.

Can I get a mortgage for a house in the UK if I live abroad?


While it might seem a bit more complex than getting a mortgage in your home country, it’s definitely doable. There are specific mortgage products designed for expats, and we can help you navigate the process.

Here’s what we can do for you:


    • Connect you with specialist lenders: We work with a network of lenders who understand the unique needs of expat buyers and offer tailored mortgage solutions.
    • Guide you through the process: We’ll help you gather the necessary documentation, understand the eligibility requirements, and find the best mortgage terms for your situation.
Why buy a house in the UK?

Here’s why expats like you are choosing to invest in the UK:


    • Stability and Growth: The UK property market is renowned for its stability and long-term growth potential, providing a secure foundation for your investments.
    • Diversification: Expand your portfolio beyond your home country and reduce risk by tapping into a thriving international market.
    • Steady Income: Become a landlord and enjoy a reliable stream of rental income, especially in high-demand areas like London and university towns.
    • Your Home Away from Home: Envision your children studying at prestigious UK universities or enjoying unforgettable family holidays in your own UK property.
    • Secure Investment: The UK’s strong legal framework and reputation for transparency offer peace of mind and protection for your investment.
Where’s the best area to buy in the UK?

The “best” location for your UK property investment depends entirely on your individual goals. Are you looking for long-term growth in property value, or is a steady rental income your priority?

For those seeking capital growth, major cities like Manchester, and Birmingham, or areas undergoing regeneration, often show strong appreciation over time. If rental yield is your focus, university towns, up-and-coming areas, or locations with thriving local economies tend to perform well.

Remember, your budget and risk tolerance are also key factors. Some areas may offer higher potential returns, but might come with greater risks. It’s also important to consider your personal preferences, whether you envision yourself living in a bustling city, a charming coastal town, or a peaceful rural setting.
