Default US Citizen buying property in UK

Hi Guys,

I am a US citizen (working in the US) and am thinking of buying an apartment in the UK. Any guidance on loan providers / agents who can help would be much appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,

Can't tell you really as we're no longer in the loop, but the folks at moneysavingexpert.com might be able to help.
Not sure how easy it will be if you are non-resident, I think you would need a hefty deposit.

yup, pretty much, always been a little tough if your not resident, more so now without a large deposit.
