Investing in UK Real Estate from Hong Kong

New predictions show house prices are expected to grow across the UK in key regional areas. London’s slow recovery and expensive property market is pushing more people to look outside of the capital, to the regional cores in the Midlands and established commuter towns in the South-East. The UK saw property prices grow by 4.4% annually over the last decade and prices look set to continue rising as Brexit uncertainty fades.

For investors from Hong Kong, this highlights how stable UK property is. With a firm stance on Brexit and more people looking to rent, the UK has plenty of potential for delivering strong, consistent rental yields. There’s no doubt that UK cities that were previously overlooked are now clear investment opportunities.

Learn more about Brexit and how it may affect your investment

With a majority government helping reduce uncertainty around Brexit, the UK is maintaining its position as a leading investment market for international buyers. According to our research, 95% of Hong Kong (HK) investors don’t consider Brexit the most critical factor in their investment. Instead, HK investors are more interested in investing based on rental yield potential. 

If you’re considering making an investment in the UK property market, download your free Brexit Guide to understand the impact that this seismic event has had on the UK and what the future holds for the sector as a whole.

Financing Your Property Investment

In terms of securing a mortgage for a UK property, the first important step is to find the right lender to suit your needs. Many high-street banks will have reduced products for overseas investors, highlighting the need to find a specialist lender. These types of lenders tend to have a broad outlook and will typically offer better rates than most well-known organisations. If you’re buying a Buy-to-Let purchase, it’s expected that this will be the most common method of financing.

UK enquiries from Asian expat mortgages have increased rapidly in the last few years, driven by highly-expensive property markets and increasing demand. Skipton International saw a 65% rise in BTL mortgages from Hong Kong in 2018 – a huge improvement on the 2016 figures.
