Ex-pat enquiries to invest in the UK is on the increase

Specialist mortgage lender Skipton International says it has received over £500m of expat mortgage enquiries for UK buy to let property in the first seven months of the year.

At the end of July 2017 figures show a 130 per cent increase in enquiries for expat mortgages compared to the same period in 2016.

The top five countries that the Buy to let enquiries from are USA, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland and United Arab Emirates where nearly a quarter of the enquiries come from.

Skipton International launched the UK mortgages in 2014 in response to the difficulties many British expats faced securing loans on investment property in England and Wales.
