Buying Apt. but ARC expiring soon

Thinking of buying an apt. but does anyone know if my ARC has to be valid for “X” amount of months? I’ll renew it of course but they won’t make me wait til then before i can purchase will they?

Anyone got a decent bank that deals mortgages at equal rates for foreigners? No Taiwanese wife or co-signer and about 70%deposit.

I don’t even know if you can buy a house on an ARC.

Of course i may be wrong, but when we bought our flat the bank wouldn’t even look at my salary just my SO’s. That was through the Taiwan cooperative Bank, so others may be different.

Your large deposit may certainly sway things in your favor as they have far less to loose.

I think someone previously mentioned trying HSBC, try searching.

Good luck
