Ed Appleby, Head of Intermediaries at the Penrith Building Society, said: “The company has been providing residential and rental mortgages to expats for several years.

“This new expat product was designed to give expats the opportunity to take advantage of the current UK holiday boom.

“Our vacation rental mortgage for expatriates is competitively priced and the eligibility criteria are very generous, with first-time buyers, first-time owners and non-owners eligible to apply.

“Brokers can struggle with unusual properties that have more than one kitchen or have a freestanding annex. Our multi-unit mortgage is perfect for clients looking to buy or remortgage a home with an annex or more than one unit on the same title.

“It is important to clarify that this is not for houses with multiple occupancy or where there is a commercial element to the dwelling. If you’re not sure whether a property meets our criteria, contact us and we’ll be happy to help! ”
