Expat Money Newsletter - April 2018

Welcome to the Expat Money Newsletter for April. This month we look at the UK buy-to-let mortgage market for expats. Many financial institutions claim to offer mortgages to expats but only a select few are really interested and offer decent terms. We have produced a new Financial Action Checklist to help you to identify the financial issues that you need to address before going abroad and we are delighted to feature our new Guide to Living in Australia.

Buy-To-Let Mortgages For Expats In The UK

Buy-to-let mortgages for expats are available to help you invest in the UK property market and there are various options for obtaining a loan.

There are additional challenges for expats beyond those faced by domestic borrowers.

Expat Tax 2: Beware UK Stamp Duty Hike

British expats have to look longer and harder to find affordable deals for UK house buying. Problems encountered by expats include having to find much larger deposits than UK-based customers, and higher interest rates and arrangement fees. These come on top of the usual hassles of finding and conveyancing a property purchase from a distance.

As a leading offshore lender Skipton explains why UK property remains one of the best investment opportunities and why it will always be an expat-friendly bank.
