I am currently living in Dubai and would be very interested in some information regarding purchasing a property in Wales, interest rates, LTV etc.

Thanks. Timothy

Thanks for your enquiry.

Capital Fortune successfully assist a number of expat clients living and working in Dubai, looking to secure properties all over the UK. Many lenders across the UK are unwilling to lend to expats abroad due to their potential lack of UK credit history whilst not being paid in GBP.

The market has changed significantly over the last twelve months and often the terms which are issued can often be on bespoke basis, where a mortgage lender will look at your overall holistic circumstances. 

If you just wish to obtain an indication on whether we are able to assist you, given your specific circumstances, I'd recommend speaking to one of our Advisers on 02077100400 or send us an enquiry online and one of our Advisers will call you back.
