Dubai based expat requires UK mortgage to buy a house for his family



The client based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates was looking to purchase a residential property in the UK, funding the purchase with a salary in Dirhams. The complexities in this case were as follows:

  1. The main earner of the family would continue to live and work in Dubai and pay the mortgage from there
  2. The salary and earnings from an existing buy-to-let that would be used to fund the mortgage were earnt in Dirhams and there was no UK-generated income or assets present

I cant tell you how fabulous its been to deal with Private Finance and specifically Nathan Cole. My forte is not finance and he kept his cool during the whole process even through covid and his own personal stuff. Its been a delight! Explained things a million times when needed and not in a patronising way. Private finance will be the first people i call!
Exceptional level of service and always very quick to respond to any queries. We would highly recommend Private Finance and look forward to working with you again in the future.
Excellent service and follow up by Private Finance throughout the entire process. Highly recommend.
