With a strong real estate market and straightforward access to financing, the UK is still one of the most alluring countries for property investment. The variety of real estate available, including buy-to-let property, country estates, pied-a-terres and vacation homes, makes the UK an especially appealing market for American clients.
In this case, we assisted a US resident in financing an £18.85 million country estate situated in the historic county of Gloucestershire. The client was willing to contribute with a 35% deposit and approached us looking for a UK mortgage. The majority of the client's income was derived from intellectual property rights alongside stock options paid offshore.
Although US residents and citizens have no restrictions to purchasing real estate, obtaining a UK mortgage as a non-resident can be difficult, particularly if you wish to buy property over £1 million. Moreover, you might not be familiar with the procedures and laws governing UK real estate purchases. Here, understanding the key differences between the UK and the US markets, from how a mortgage application is normally made to the function of a real estate agent, will be vital.
