Cryptocurrency & Mortgages

No doubt, by now, you’ve likely heard of cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin and others have surged in popularity, and recently it seems that everyone we talk to wants to get in on the action or has a friend or relative that has made a small fortune.  

But can cryptocurrency be used effectively in the real world? We are often asked:

Can I use Bitcoin or another cryptocurrency as a mortgage deposit?
At the moment cryptocurrency itself cannot be used as a mortgage deposit, however,  it’s possible to use profits from it to fund your deposit. 

You’d need to sell the currency and produce a document trail of its acquisition and sale to have any chance of finding a mortgage lender who is willing to accept this capital. And although it’s difficult, there are around a dozen UK lenders who will consider this as a mortgage deposit.
