We have rented our property in the UK out.
We also remortgaged and released some of equity this way.
I have our advisers number if you wish to speak with him.
We took our new mortgage on interest only, just for the simple reason that we would keep the house for around 5 years then sell hoping the exchange rate had risen and the housing market would have stopped falling .
So far touch wood we have had two tenants both signed 12 month agreements with bonds our latest one wants to stay for a couple of years as her daughters only young and at the local school.
To be honest I don't really think about the house anymore it looks after itself now and gave us the deposit for our new home in Ozz.
I wouldn't mention emigrating so if you can have a relative let you use there address this will make things easier.
I think Nationwide ask for the least information
