 Offshore mortgages

Getting the best deal as an expat on an offshore mortgage (sometimes international mortgages) can prove difficult. Different lenders operate in different countries and the rules and criteria can vary from country to country.

If you're an expatriate thinking of borrowing money through an  mortgage, whether it be for house purchase, capital raising or even inheritance tax planning, there are a number of questions you will have, such as:

  • How much can I borrow?

  • How much deposit do I need?

  • What is the lending criteria?

  • What's the best rate I can get?

Before these questions can be answered, it is important to consider what type of mortgage you want, whether the interest rate is fixed and won't change, or is variable and go up and down. Perhaps you would be best with a discounted mortgage or one that is capped at a maximum level. The other main issue is the decision on which currency to take the mortgage in, Sterling, Euros, Dollars or perhaps the local currency.
