UK student loan and Belgian mortgage
Hi all, in applying for my mortgage, my mortgage broker insisted on having details about my student loan debt in the U.K. Now I’ve discovered the lender we’ve applied to seems to be hesitating because they don’t understand how the UK student loans system works.
The exact comment I got was: “Can you please give more information over that subject because in Belgium every loan has to be paid back…” so obviously as there’s no similar system in Belgium they’re looking at it through the eyes of standard commercial loan debt which it obviously isn’t.
So I was wondering if any Brits on this forum have had any similar experience in having to reconcile their UK student loan debt with their Belgian mortgage application? I've sent my broker a long explanation about how the UK student loans system works and how repayments are means tested annually and based on what your overall salary is, as well as several links to relevant pages of the Student Loans Company website but was wondering if there's anything else I can do... Thanks in advance!
