What is changing for EEA and Swiss Citizens on mortgage front?
New Year will bring lots of changes for businesses and employers due to Brexit and there may be also some changes to mortgage borrowers who are non-UK residents living and working in the UK.
Some mortgage lenders are already introducing new criteria due to Brexit! For some mortgage applications certain lenders will soon require proof of residency rights in the UK from EEA/Swiss nationals. Examples of documents required are pre-settled and settled status documents. If, therefore, you are a non UK national living and working in the UK and planning to get a mortgage, it is best to check whether you have the required residency status after 31 December 2020.
