Default Buying property in UK as Australian tax resident

G'day all! I'm a Brit who's lived in Australia for 16 years and am planning to move to Scotland in 2023. I'm almost 66 years old and officially retired.

My question is, will I be allowed to purchase a house in Scotland while I'm still an Australian resident for tax purposes?

If not, what is the procedure for changing tax residency status?

Thanks so much in advance.

Sure you can.....whether or not you'll get a British mortgage (if you need such a thing) while still being an Australian tax resident is another thing.
Pay cash and no problem....

Thanks so much! I wasn't sure if there was a rule about foreign residents. Yes, I'll be a cash buyer. Probably too old to get a home loan anyway.
