Can I get an expat mortgage in the UK if I live in Dubai or the UAE?

Trinity Financial has access to a range of lenders providing expat mortgages for applicants living in Dubai, Bahrain, Jordan, Oman, Qatar and the UAE.

Many of the niche lenders and private banks have improved their expat propositions to make it is easier to get a mortgage if you are based overseas.

NatWest was the largest bank offering expat mortgages but pulled out of the market in 2016. This led to a dramatic rise in competition between lenders to attract expats and foreign nationals. 

Kent Reliance, Skipton International, Saffron, Ahli United, Axis Bank, Vida Home Loans and Market Harborough Building Society all offer expat mortgages and charge different rates with varying arrangement fees.

A selection of private banks offer expat rates if you are looking for £1 million+ mortgages and Trinity has excellent connections at Coutts and Standard Chartered Bank.

Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial, says: “With so much choice in the expat market, it can be challenging to work out exactly which lender to approach. You need to manage the time zone differences and want to make the application process as smooth as possible. It is important to ensure you are getting the most competitively priced rate.”

If you live in the Middle East and plan to buy a property in the UK for your family to reside in, our brokers can arrange mortgages through HSBC and they offer highly competitive rates with low arrangement fees.

One of the private banks we have access to will arrange an appointment to visit clients in Bahrain, Jordan, Oman, Qatar or the UAE and go through the mortgage application process. They also have bankers to visit many countries throughout Africa and Asia.
