Enhance Your Mortgage Approval Odds

Navigating the mortgage landscape as a seafarer poses unique challenges. Whether you’re on a yacht, tanker, container ship, or cruise liner, the demands of your profession can complicate the mortgage application process. Prolonged periods at sea make it difficult to visit your bank or provide the necessary documentation promptly.

Moreover, many lenders are hesitant to extend mortgages to individuals not consistently based in the UK or those with a transient lifestyle. This perceived higher risk, combined with factors like the Seafarers Earnings Deduction (SED), which, while advantageous for tax reduction, may limit the consideration of your full earnings, can turn securing a mortgage into a daunting task—especially if you’re paid in a foreign currency or employed by a non-UK company.

That’s where we can help…

At Liquid Expat Mortgages, we understand the frustrations faced by seafarers denied mortgages due to their occupations, despite having stable incomes and low monthly expenses. Recognising the difficulties faced, we’ve developed a tailored solution to guide individuals like you through the complexities of the UK mortgage market.

Understanding that mainstream banks might not be your ally, we’ve established partnerships with numerous specialist mortgage lenders who have a long proven history of working with seafarers and offshore professionals. This strategic collaboration allows us to work with you to secure your mortgage quickly. 

Additionally, our team is geared to handle all administrative tasks and paperwork on your behalf, ensuring that your mortgage application progresses smoothly even if you spend extended periods abroad. Don’t let your profession hinder your dream of homeownership or property investment, let us be your trusted partner in achieving your financial goals.

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.
