Thinking about taking out a mortgage to finance your overseas property?

What are the benefits of an Overseas Mortgage?

It is important to get professional advice when borrowing overseas, so you can be sure you get the right product for your circumstances. You will work with a highly trained, multilingual team who can help you through every stage of the process. Not only will they be fully knowledgeable on the local market but they will be able to offer you support and advice whenever you need.

Before you apply

Before taking out a mortgage make sure you are fully aware of the risks involved. A mortgage is a serious financial responsibility so you need to make sure your finances will be able to cope.

It is worth bearing in mind that each country has its own rules and regulations, and transaction time period. Many people forget that it can take longer for transactions in the overseas markets in comparison to the UK. You may be accustomed to making an online transaction or application in minutes, but in some countries this can take weeks.

Finding the right service

There are many overseas mortgage companies available so you should take the time to research the market. The first offer you find will not necessarily be the best so make sure you shop around and compare as many offers you can. You can use the table above to compare different services to help you find the one that best suits you.

Make sure you are fully away of the costs involved and that you have a breakdown of the costs so you know exactly what you are paying for. Fees vary according to providers as some will charge applications but some wont. Watch out for any hidden administration fees which can be expensive. You need to be sure that the service they can offer is worth the fees involved.

When deciding on the service to use make sure you look at what countries they work in and languages the teams can speak.

Make sure they are regulated

Always look at whether they are regulated and are an established company so you can be sure you are dealing with licensed professionals. Most mortgage brokers are regulated by the Financial Services Authority, and since 2004 the FSA has taken over the regulation of mortgage brokers. However, overseas mortgage brokers are not required to be regulated by the FSA - therefore, make sure they are regulated by an authorised firm. Check your provider's Terms and Conditions, or feel free to ask them if you are unsure.

Check the terms and conditions

Always ensure that you check the terms and conditions when looking at overseas mortgage providers. Each company will have different lending criteria which you must ensure you make yourself aware of.
