It really is madness to do this and would certainly advise you to think again especially if you are asking how they work.
Mortgages of 100% can only be obtained by means of falsified documentation.
i didnt know that they were frowned upon or dare say it illegal?
Do Spanish banks (If it is legal) offer interest only mortgages over long periods, Say 20 years?
I understand some do on the short term,John.
Rather than take out a 100% mortgage in Spain, why not extend your uk mortgage to pay the 30% and then borrow the 70% in Spain.
This is very risky, if anything goes wrong you could lose 2 properties not just one.
If we get to a time again in UK where negative equity hits, the Social Services will have to build more offices to deal with all those caught in the trap. many of those will have overextended, yet feel sorry for themselves, and expect the taxpayer to pick up the bill.
I would also think it is irresponsible to borrow a large amount in a foreign currency when you would be repaying with UK funds
If mortgages in the UK were on a similar basis it would have possibly slowed the present large rise in house prices & the riskof a price crash
I would also bann remortgaging to release equity
at the end of the day im doing it and its nothing to do with anybody else , i was asking for help not your small minded opinions on what im doing.
is this the OAP costa room?? LOL
Whether you take the advice or not is up to you but there is no reason to be rude just because you don't like that advice.
I hope everything goes well for you, but if it doesn't please don't come back and ask for help in how to get out of any problems that you have.
"at the end of the day im doing it and its nothing to do with anybody else" - so why ask their advice?
"is this the OAP costa room" - no, but obviously viewed by sensible people.
"i really dont see a problem in what im doing,its the same as spending on a credit card for example" - which is why the bankruptcy courts are busier than ever.
"and if i rent it out itll be a bit more help" - my apologies on this one, I did not realise that you were considering buying a property with a Touristic Licence and looking at it as an income?
Neat idea, bet not many people are buying to rent?
If you are depending on rental income to support or maintain borrowings, be even more cautious.
You can have whatever length of time you want as well, they dont only deal with over 20 years etc, you can have 5-10-15 as well.
As word of advice, dont believe what you are initially told, the whole system is based on tampered info. But that doesnt make it bad.
Also, if you want a 10% mortgage there is nothing wrong with that, it is quite normal
Its upto you how you arrange your affairs but you came on here asking for help All any of us (some of whom have a lot of experience of owning property abroad ) were giving you was the benefit of what it has taken some of us a long time to learn
We don't know all the answers but we know a lot of them
The best of luck

Tampering with a P60 or obtaining a false valuation (two of the methods used to obtain high mortgages) isn't just bad it is fraud and you will be for the high jump if you get caught.
I didn't think that forums were about being unfriendly and that is what you all have been. So why don't you all go and take a run and jump and don't reply to something you know nothing ABOUT!!!
If you do it may be you who will be taking the running jump... right off the edge of the nearest cliff-top, along with your dodgy mortgage broker.
