Brexit and buyers from the UK
If you are an overseas property buyer from the UK, you will still be able to purchase property and live in any other EU country without issues while the UK is still a member of the EU. If you are able to achieve residency before Brexit, you will live with the same rights as overseas buyers currently have.
While any changes after this date are yet unknown, work is ongoing in the negotiations for expat rights. There will certainly be some protections in place for UK owners of property within the EU, particularly given the contribution that UK homeowners make to the local economies throughout popular EU destinations.
