Mr & Mrs A (Spain) Expats aged 65 & 66 living in Spain for the last 15 years. Had sold up all UK property to retire to Southern Spain. In receipt of pension and UK ltd company dividend income.
The applicants wanted to purchase a UK property on a Buy To Let mortgage to supplement their income and to have a property that could be lived in when the applicants returned to the UK at planned age of 75.
We put them in touch with a reputable agent to secure the UK property purchase and arranged the Expat BTL mortgage to complete the purchase.
