The good news is that there is no limit to buying UK property from Singapore, and you can buy any kind of overseas property to invest in it. Many Singaporeans buy multiple properties and establish an investment real estate portfolio.
Investing in the UK from Singapore is a relatively straightforward process, but you will need to have due diligence and be patient to make sure you are investing your money in the right property.
UK investing from Singapore is similar to buying property in Singapore, with some slight differences. Property prices are usually negotiable, with the seller setting the asking price higher than what they expect to receive for the property.
You can find investment properties through portals like Zoopla or Rightmove, or you could contact estate agents or property investment companies directly to see what they have to offer.
When looking for an investment property, you should focus on areas with affordable prices, high rental yields and lots of tenant demand.
The process of buying a property is called conveyancing, the same as it is in Singapore. You will need to hire a solicitor to do this for you, as will the seller, to make sure everything is legal and done the right way.
The solicitors will do the hard work, and eventually, exchange contracts so you can pay a deposit for the sale to be legally binding. After this, a completion date will be set and you pay the remaining amount and the property will legally be yours.
The sale will be registered with HM Land Registry, and you can begin finding tenants and collecting rental income from your new investment property.
