Lenders have to follow money laundering regulations, and this can lead to them imposing restrictions over where your deposit can come from. This sometimes can cause issues if the source of your deposit is based outside of the UK. Generally speaking, acceptable sources of deposit include savings and investments held in the UK, sale of a UK property, equity that’s been raised from another property, from an inheritance or trust, or a deposit that’s been gifted from close family or friends. Whilst some lenders will prefer that the deposit originates from the UK, there are specialist lenders who may allow sources from alternative locations – speak to our expert team to find out more.
