Can a British Expat or Foreign National get a Mortgage in the United Kingdom?

The question is a common one, and the short answer is yes – but you may already know from experience that applying for a UK mortgage whilst living abroad can be difficult. British expats and foreign nationals often face more checks and complicated paperwork requirements. Your mortgage application can also be affected by your personal circumstances, such as which country you are currently residing in. Meanwhile, if you’re paid in foreign currency, the process will likely be even more complicated.

That’s where Liquid Expat Mortgages can help, we are a specialist expat mortgage broker who have been helping clients like yourself to secure UK mortgages since 2007. Whether you want the best mortgage rates or are simply looking for more information, our brokers have many years’ experience in sourcing mortgage finance for expats and foreign national clients and can advise accordingly.

Helping You Through the Expat Mortgage Application Process

Most high street lenders lack expat mortgage options and support structures for Expats or Foreign Nationals seeking finance. This is where a specialist UK expat mortgage broker is usually necessary to ensure your application meets the right criteria and is directed to the appropriate lender. Any available mortgage product will depend on your specific circumstances.

Our consultants and dedicated support team will guide you through the entire UK mortgage application process. We'll identify all of the requirements, including income and visa status. We help reduce disruption, contain your costs, and save you time.

We’re here to Save Time and Take Away the Stress

  • We work with the lender to present your case and ensure an underwriter doesn’t make assumptions based on the fact you live and work abroad or have only recently moved to the UK.

  • We can talk you through the process on how best to present your mortgage application.

  • As a completely independent team of expat mortgage specialists – we have no obligations other than ensuring you receive the best and most valuable service from our team.

  • We can help you secure a more favourable rate when exchanging money across borders.

We came back to the UK in July 2022 after almost 20 years abroad and discovered that, as an "expat", borrowing for a new home is very difficult. Liquid Expat made it possible and we have just moved into our new home. They are specialists in the field and we would recommend them to all expats needing a mortgage.

After an initially shakey experience with a staff member who subsequently left Jae came in like a super hero and helped me to get this deal done. I have been having an immense amount of trouble with my own legal representation (!!!!) and Jae has been the guiding light.
