Foreign National looking to buy a home

on 07 November 2016.


I am a Pakistani National, can i get a mortgage to buy a home?

Thanks, Mohsin

Ask the Specialist response:

Hi Mohsin,

Thanks for your enquiry.

We speak to a lot of clients who are confused if they can get a mortgage due to their visa status. I can confirm that we can assist foreign nationals who are living in the UK on a visa looking to purchase a home.

We are often told that the bigger banks require a large deposit or permanent rights to reside in the UK, however we successfully assist clients on different visa types with as small as a 5% deposit.

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.
