Every Mortgage Tells A Story: BTL Expat living and working abroad

Vida Homeloans is the award-winning specialist residential and buy to let lender for customers who may not fit the criteria currently demanded by high street lenders. Every mortgage tells a story; tell us your customer’s.

Meet Ryan. He’s a British Expat living and working in Dubai. Ryan has a UK residential property already, but, having saved up a 25% deposit, he wants to invest in the UK property market as a first time landlord, by buying a flat in Leeds. He has a non-British spouse who will be a party to the mortgage and a small missed payment to a credit card provider in the last six months. He’s been turned down by a couple of high street lenders but his broker knows that this is just the sort of case where Vida will listen to his story.
