Mrs Flashman and I have found a proprty we would like to buy and have had an offer accepted subject to etc. What I am seeking clarification on is the issue of mortgages. As we are in an MQ and intend to stay in an MQ, is the place we intend to buy still considered as our primary residence as we are in a house provided because of my work and it is not a property we own? Secondly I am getting a lot of slack jawed answers because I am serving in Germany, despite explaining I pay UK taxes and I am a UK resident etc. Any assistance would be most gratefully appreciatednand I am sure would be useful to others.
