If you are a foreign worker living in the UK, you may be interested in investing in the lucrative real estate market in Europe’s financial capital. You might also be tired of paying high rent in the cities of the UK. Since buying property, especially in the UK, is usually a costly undertaking, you will need a mortgage to help you acquire the property. Unfortunately, banks and other financial institutions are never eager to lend to foreigners. There are, however, some lenders who know that most expats have high paying jobs and great credit ratings, so they are a great investment. Consequently, these firms have started offering UK mortgages for expats.
All you need to qualify for these mortgages is a decent credit rating, a small deposit and proof of income. Once you have been prequalified, you would have to buy property that is either marketable or generates rental income every month.
