Will I be affected if I own a second home in the EU?
If you have a second home in the EU, you may find that you're restricted in the amount of time you're able to stay there.
It is expected that after the transition period ends, UK citizens will be able to travel to most EU countries – along with Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland – for up to 90 days in any 180-day period. To stay longer, you may need to apply for a visa.
Travel to Ireland will not be affected after the end of the transition period, so if your second home is there you won’t face any new restrictions on time spent in it.
If you rent your second home out, you may have to pay a different level of income tax to what you pay now if the country your property is located in has a different rate for EU and non-EU residents.
