For those looking to purchase property in the UK, it can be a complicated process, and you might be unsure of where to start. With frequently changing and increasingly complex tax rules involved, plus a wide range of mortgage options available, it’s best to seek advice.
There are a number of reasons why you might be interested in buying UK property. You may be looking to buy a home to live in now, or at some point in the future. You might be keen to buy as an investment, in order to diversify money away from Hong Kong. You might simply be wanting a property that can be used by or gifted to your children. Whatever your reasons, we can help.
We’ve helped many people in Hong Kong purchase property in the UK, working closely with them to secure a suitable mortgage via our in-house lenders and connections with brokers. We can also work with British and international expats who might be on the same journey.
