  1. HI all, Has anyone here ever released some equity in their UK property to buy a property in the UK? I just want to gauge everyone's opinion/experience on this whether it is an option worth considering or not for me. I recently was granted the PR (100), and intend to keep my property in the UK whilst gearing up to buy a property in Australia in the near future (once my wife & I are settled there with job/life etc, in the interim will be staying with the "outlaws" ). I'm keen to keep my property in UK for quite some time and have a fairly low LTV (Loan-to-value), and can scrape just about enough UK savings for say a 20% deposit in Melbourne. I just want to lay out all the options in case I have missed any, and pros and cons of each one: Option A: Rent out UK property; no equity release; use UK cash savings for a 20% deposit in Australia Option B: Rent out UK property; release some equity; use UK cash savings and cash from equity release for a bigger deposit in Australia Option C: Sell UK property; use cash from UK home sale for a outright purchase or large deposit in Australia The factors I've been thinking out loud are FX risk, tax implications, hassle (time and effort), interest rates UK vs Aus, Brexit ... etc. Thanks in advance for your valuable feedback!
