A UK National who had relocated to Australia 4 Years ago. They were existing homeowners and had secured full time employment since moving overseas.
The client was wanting to remortgage their former residential address in the UK onto an Expat Buy to Let Mortgage. The existing UK residential mortgage had been on consent to let however the lender was no longer willing to keep the mortgage running due to the client now being permanently based overseas.
Many lenders who offer Expat Buy to Let Mortgages require the borrower to be employed by a multi-national company, which was not however the case for the individual. The client had advised their preference was to secure a 5 Year fixed rate.
