UK Mortgage Advice For Overseas Residents

Offering specialist mortgage advice for clients who are based overseas, and looking to purchase or refinance a UK property.

How We Help Internationally Based Clients

Here at Pinnacle, we understand the challenges when trying to arrange a mortgage from outside the UK. Due to the typical complexities involved, the lender pool is naturally shallower compared to a conventional lending arrangement, although this doesn’t mean the deal secured is less competitive.

Having the ability to navigate through the lender market to ascertain which lenders can consider a particular case, is a crucial skill. Along with this having access to all lenders within the UK is key, as this exposure ensures the advice provided is perfectly tailored to an individual’s needs.

Our scope of service allows us to help clients from across all continents, and deal with a wide spectrum of mortgage scenario, from the straightforward, to extremely technical.

What Countries Are Included

All lenders will have a carefully selected approved countries list, which is aligned to their respective approach to risk. For example, some lenders will not consider lending to clients resident in countries that are on a financial sanctions list, whereas some lenders take a more flexible approach by considering all countries. In some cases, a lender may consider the EU, but exclude certain countries within the continent. Not only that, but these lists change frequently.

We have helped clients arrange mortgage finance from across the globe, covering North, Central, and South America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australasia.
