Try this out to see what sort of mortgages are available to non residents for “buy to let” properties in the UK:
I don’t believe the UK buy-to-let mortgage market is as sophisticated as in Australia, but there seem to be many more positiely cash flow yielding properties over here.

I am currently living in London, I would suggest buying in the Royal Docks area, the units are nice and with the upcoming (hopefuly olympics) they are going to be based around Royal Docks.
Hope this helps
docklans looks too expensive for me, possible capital gain
I am looking for postive cashflow properties
so more norht england
but thanks for the other sites

Prices have now started to fall in the UK.
Sounds like the time for novices to start buying.
Perhaps you are one who won’t.

Hi. Try these. Most places outside of London and the South East of the UK are positive cashflow / geared:
Liverpool – European Culture Capital of 2008.
Terrace houses around £50k. Yield 6% – 15%.
Leeds. Nice University town. Yields slightly lower, but still a great buy.
A great book to recommend is: http://www.howtobooks.co.uk
It is called “Buy to Let Property Hotspots”. It is a year old, but has a wealth of information on loads of areas – Population, crime rates, yields and prices for differing types of property, national averages, capital growth, large employers, letting demand, void periods, yield and capital growth ratings, summary, more detailed description, transport links, estate agents, and letting agents.
Whilst it is not a substitute for doing your own research, it sure makes it a lot easier!
the book sound great, will get it
I know there are areas were you can get good yeilds
just need to look harder
London has always been expensive
I go for cashflow first and capital gain secound
I still would like at least one PI over in the UK
so we can get tax free trip, but I only going to
get one if the numbers stack up, not just getting PI
just for a free trip
