UK Expat Mortgages
I’ve now organized two buy to let purchases through Capital Fortune and can totally recommend their services.
Anthony Yee, Sydney, Australia We offer a bespoke and holistic service to all UK expats seeking mortgages here in the UK. The UK mortgage market has shrunk considerably since the economic downturn with many high street banks and building societies withdrawing from the ex pat market. There remains a number of competitive options available. Typically, we deal with ex pats based in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle and Far East, as well as the States and Canada - although we usually assist expats wherever they are in the world. Our team can source mortgages for ex pats both coming back to the UK and remaining in their host country.
A professional and smooth process…from start to finish.
Mrs P Ustunkal, Turkey Despite difficulties with credit scoring applicants and jurisdictional issues, a number of lenders have remained in the ex pat market and mortgages can be potentially sourced whether you are employed, self employed or even retired.
As you would expect with an award winning company, all our finance is arranged through fully authorised, regulated mortgage lenders, whom can offer Capital Fortune, exclusive products and rates.

Lesley, Dubai We have been voted the Overall Adviser of the Year for the largest UK mortgage and protection network, two years in a row and have recently won a national industry award for Excellence in Treating Customers Fairly.

|2||Approval in Principle|
|This stage involves completing a 45 minute Mortgage Fact Find questionnaire over the phone to fully assess needs and requirements. Once complete, we undertake research across a comprehensive panel of lenders to recommend the right mortgage. A detailed illustration is provided which we will take you through. If you are happy with the illustration we will then request documents from you to support the application. On receipt of the documents we will obtain formal approval in principle from the lender.|
