Can I get a UK mortgage while working abroad?

Posted on 9 April 2013 by Karolina


Currently working in the Middle East. My base is in London. Can I get a UK mortgage while working abroad? I have a deposit of £40k.  Thank you

Karolina,

The short answer is that 'yes' you can. The loan to values are not as high as they would be if you were residing and working in the UK, and the process is a little more laborious, but it can be done.

If you'd like to see what your options are, then please let me know and I'll arrange a convenient time for you to speak to one of our consultants.

Regards,

Simon
