    Hi Pneumatic,

    we can try to help if you private message me - but to be honest spanish mortgages at the present are very difficult and unless you have perfect credit references both in spain and the uk and 30% equity in your spanish property (taking into account 30%+ drop in spanish property prices) you are going to find this a difficul process

    I'm not a mortgage broker and I seem to be getting different vibes re mortages for non residents just now
    A status which is OK for one client to get a mortgage may not be OK for another client with a similar status

    Can anyone give a general guide with confidence just now say for:

    Middle aged buyer with say 30% deposit wanting a good term interest only
    and for say

    a 6o + buyer with the same deposit

    Interesting to read the views of the brokers who look at this forum

    Hi Brian,

    at the moment neither would go through unless their credit rating is A+ an enough provable income to support current commitments and for the proposed spanish mortgages.

    Best Euros rates the moment is 1.1500

    Current mortgage conditions

    Hi Brian

    it is currently nigh on impossible for your hypothetical clients to get an interest only period at all

    Most banks will lend 60% comfortably but the over 60 market will not be offered any interest only period

    80% is still possible but only through one lender who you can imagine is cherry picking

    On average debt to income ratios have been reduced to 35%. I have been told that the bank of spain have to approve all non resident mortgages before the banks can sign .This is why on average it takes 3 to 4 months for completions these days

    switch and save today

    Thanks for all the information
    Do you all expect it to improve as we move out of the recession say 2010

    not this year or next - we are working on the double dip and think this is going to get worse.

    low euro exchange rates, lack of spanish mortgages and real chance of being fired is scaring most people - even those who want to buy spanish property are sitting on the sidelines as sellers are becoming more and more desprate.

    shubh - how are you going selling your book

    It may get worse, but then it hits a level and improves. Spain is still an awesome country and has alot of good lifestyle and quality. Financially things are harder but it has alot to offer. Spain will come back stronger. Personally and Work wise I am very positive on Spains future. It is just correcting its excesses.
    2010 come back, or 2011, but it will be back.

    the state of the market

    Hi guys

    this sums up the spanish market of today. I have just been instructed to list a 3 / 4 bedroom detached frontline golf villa with pool that was on the market in 2006 at €525,000 for the grand sum of €225,000

    I doubt even at that price i will be able to complete a sale due to the lack of mortgage s available
