    Any experience with expat mortgages here?

    As the title says, really - I'm looking for a mortgage in the UK while working here in Qatar. I've picked a terrible time of course - all the lenders are busy with other matters! But does anyone have any experience or leads, contacts, tips?

    Greatly appreciated!

    Had to attempt to get an expat mortgage 18months ago for a let property i own with by brother. I am UK, but he is in Germany, so we needed to look at ex-pat mortgages.

    Probably best to use a broker for these, i used John Charcol who seemed good, but be prepared for high rates & fees for an expat mortgage.

    Best rate we were offered at the time was 4.15% with 1500 in fees, because of that we bailed on the idea, did some equity transfer jiggery pockery getting the property in my sole name, then got a standard BTL mortgage at a much more appealing 2.35% with 1/3 of the fees too.
