You don’t have to be resident in the UK, or even a UK national, to buy property in the UK. Hear some the reasons and challenges that expatriates face when acquiring a property – be it a family home or an investment.

You can borrow against a UK, Isle of Man or Channel Island-based residence, be it your own home or an investment property. We also lend against investment portfolios, and loans can be denominated in Sterling, Euros or US Dollars.

 

To find out more about Nedbank Private Wealth’s bespoke lending services, please contact your private banker directly or call our client services team on +44 (0)1624 645000. Or you can get in touch using the links to the forms towards the end of this page.

Your home is at risk if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or any other loan secured against it. Nedbank Private Wealth does not provide tax advice, and instead works with tax advisers to ensure clients receive the appropriate advice.
