    I've heard that new arrivals cannot get a mortgage for two years. Is this right?

    If so, are the rent-to-buy schemes safe? If so, do you have to select from properties they have or can you find your ideal property then take it to a rent-to-buy scheme?

    Any thoughts/advice would be great.

    An old but relevant warning about the rent-to-buy scheme.

    A more recent article about it.

    With regard to getting a mortgage, I believe it would be possible if you have regular employment, but I would hope some others who have more personal experience of this will fill you in on the details.
