YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE
Recently, RBS International changed
their structure and now all new international mortgages are offered through the
NatWest International brand rather than the Royal Bank of Scotland International brand, however
NatWest belongs to Royal Bank of Scotland so you are effectively getting your international
mortgage from the same major UK bank.
Mortgages from NatWest International (Royal Bank of Scotland International) are aimed at foreign nationals who want to either buy to let or buy to live in the UK, as well as UK expatriates.
NatWest International is a division of the major high street bank, that exists to assist people seeking mortgages who need their national status taken into consideration, and may need help in understanding how UK mortgages work as financial protocols and standards differ all over the world. If you are a foreign national looking to let or live in the UK, they may therefore be one of the best equipped lenders to help you get the mortgage you want.
NatWest is the largest retail bank in the UK, and has been part of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group since 2000. The Royal Bank of Scotland Group is ranked 10th in the world in terms of assets. This means it is a very stable brand to consider getting your international mortgage with. They also offer a range of different mortgage products to suit different circumstances and requirements, including buy to let mortgages that can allow you to own up to 10 UK properties that are to be rented out.
If you are looking to live in the UK, you can also make use of NatWest's 1,600 branches and services from over 3,400 cash machines. If you need to manage your mortgage from overseas, they offer full telephone and internet banking facilities.
To get an international mortgage with Royal Bank of Scotland International (trading as NatWest), you may be required to open a current account with them and make the mortgage repayments from this account.
This is a common requirement for international mortgages, particularly if you don't have a UK based account at the moment. Opening a current account is generally quite easy and can be handled at the same time as you speak to the bank about your mortgage.
