The mortgage market has become increasingly challenging for anyone based outside the UK seeking finance on UK property. A few years ago, major players such as Lloyds International, Barclays, Bank of Scotland and RBS International provided competitive and convenient finance to expats and other overseas residents.

Recently, things have changed. The financial crisis saw major lenders retreat to domestic, UK-based clients. Accessing smaller, niche lenders can be tough.

That’s where Altura come in.

With strong relationships with a wide range of private banks, challenger banks and regional building societies, we can find the right lender for you; whatever your situation, whether for investment or as a future home.

We have put together this guide to help you find lenders that are great for expats and overseas residents.

Whether you’re looking for residential, investment or commercial property finance, we can help. If you have any further questions or would like to learn more about how we can help you, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
