    I’m about to apply to a UK bank for a remortgage against a home I own in London. This bank does not operate in Australia but offers expat mortgages.

    Should I disclose my neutral geared property investments and shares in Australia to them? Will this hurt or help my application? Can foreign banks check credit history in Australia?

    We do a lot of Expat / Foreign National loans and most lenders wherever they are based ask for a copy of a credit search in your Country of origin.

    Not disclosure on an application form is actually Mortgage fraud so upto you whether you want to go this route.
