Frequently Asked Questions

What is the maximum LTV available?    

For non-residents the max LTV is usually 65%, maybe 70% in some rare cases.

What will it cost to arrange my mortgage?    

The fee to help prepare your mortgage varies from country to country but will be made clear to you in advance. It is usually 1-1.5% of the mortgage amount.

Will my UK credit record affect the success of my application?    

 Yes, it is a key factor in the eligibility criteria.

What is the min/max mortgage available?    

We only arrange mortgages of at least approx €100,000/$100,000. LTVs available vary from country to country but generally are n higher than about 70%

How important is my income?    

This is hugely important. Most overseas countries look at the Debt to Income ratio i.e. the percentage of your total net monthly income that is used to make debt repayments such as domestic mortgages, personal loans, car payments, credit cards AND the mortgage you are now applying for. Depending on the country you wish to buy in, this DTIR is generally between 30-40% so can be quite strict. In our experience this is the single biggest obstacle faced by UK buyers when looking to purchase overseas.

What is needed to apply
