Tier 2 Mortgage

If you're on a Tier 2 visa, you may think that buying a property is impossible, but do not fret, while your options are few, there is a set of lenders who may be able to help you. In this article we look at some common questions related to mortgages for Tier 2 visa holders and offer some tips for those in the market.

How realistic is getting a mortgage on a Tier 2 visa?

While certainly not straightforward, it is possible to get a mortgage on a Tier 2 visa. You will need to do some digging to find lenders who are willing to take on those with a Tier 2 visa.

I don't have much of a credit history am I likely to get a mortgage?

Every situation is different, as is every lender's criteria. While some will not be willing to help, you may be surprised by the amount that will be. In the end lenders make considerable sums over the life of a mortgage so it is important that they sell as many as possible. You can also work to improve your credit history with websites such as Clearscore, who offer free services to help improve your credit.

I don't have much of a deposit, what are my options?

With options such as Shared Ownership and Help to Buy, the government has tried to assist those with smaller deposits. Help to Buy offers a government backed equity loan to help access mortgage deals that would normally only be open to those with a higher deposit. House prices in the UK are among the highest in the World and this means that even those on median incomes can struggle to join the ladder. It is well worth investigating the government's options as they may well be perfect for you.

But I Thought I Wouldn't Be Eligible For Help To Buy Or Shared Ownership.

While not common, it is not in the terms of either scheme that you cannot be on a Tier 2 visa. It is well worth speaking to the lenders who run the schemes to see if they can help your situation. Several high street banks and building societies take part in both of these schemes and they are an excellent option for those looking to get on the housing ladder.

Who Should I Turn To For Mortgage Advice?

Mortgage brokers are well worth the small fee that they charge for their services. With inside knowledge of the market, brokers have access to useful information that can help find the right deal for you and your situation. We would always suggest that you speak to professionals in the field who can help.

"Anna Foley was the lawyer helping my partner obtain an EEA EFM visa. She was outstanding. Handling the case with constant correspondence over a lengthy, lockdown delayed 7-month application process. Her expert advice guided us successfully through some difficult times as a result of COVID-19. Some of the best service I have received for any service ever! Often replying to emails late at night, offering to send additional correspondence to the home office and going above and beyond in handling our case! Well done and thank you Reiss Edwards and thank you Anna!!".

"Professional service. I was very impressed with the fact that my ILR application was successful 6 weeks after the submission amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. I also think the portfolio put together by the team at Reiss Edwards has played a big part in the quick turnaround of my application".
