Setting up a home loan from the UK

Hi there


I wonder if you can help me. I'm and Australian citizen who lives in the UK and have for 14 years. I married two years ago, to a UK Citizen for whom I am currently establishing Australian Residency.


I am looking at returning to Australia in the next few years and have decided to purchase a property ahead of that time. In fact I have seen one that I would like to offer on. The questions I have are

  • Are we able to take out a joint mortgage - not an issue if not but a preference if possible
  • How would I go about securing a loan from the UK
  • What evidence will you need to me to provide to secure a loan
  • Anything else that you feel I would need to know

Many thanks

Hey David, thanks for getting in touch. 

You'll be best to have a chat with one of our Home Finance Managers regarding the specific requirements. If you could please send through an email to, I'll arrange for a specialist to get back to you.
