At Barclays, we offer a mortgage service to UK expats and residents and nationals of other countries looking to buy property in the UK. We can help you find the right mortgage and assist you with associated financial planning.
You may be looking for a non-resident UK mortgage, a 'Res Non Dom1' mortgage or a 'moving to the UK' mortgage. Specific products such as these don't exist, since the tax break for Res Non Doms to take out an offshore mortgage on their UK home was abolished in 2008. However as specialists in international banking, we can offer mortgages to non-UK residents, British expats returning home and those with no credit history in the UK.
Barclays cannot provide tax advice. If you are uncertain about whether this status applies to you or need more information, please consult an independent tax adviser.

Interest-only and repayment options
UK Mortgages are also available on an interest only or repayment (capital and interest) basis.
With this type of mortgage, the monthly payment covers only the interest charged on the loan and does not cover any repayment of the capital, i.e. the original amount borrowed. To repay the capital you need a separate investment/assurance policy or plan. You are required to pay a regular contribution to the policy/plan which, provided certain growth assumptions are met, will pay a sufficient amount on maturity to repay the capital payable on the mortgage. This policy/plan may or may not be guaranteed to pay off the mortgage in full.
With a repayment mortgage, you make a single payment each month. The payment covers both the interest on the loan and repays part of the capital. Provided all payments have been made, it repays the loan in full at the end of the term of the mortgage.
1 Res Non Dom or 'resident non-domiciled' usually means someone who lives in the UK (and may also be a UK resident) but has their origin in another country and does not intend to make the UK their permanent home. If this describes you, it is also likely that you may be regarded 'resident non-domiciled' for UK tax purposes.
