I live in the UK, and I am planning to leave the country next year for another European country.
I have lived in this country for more than 5 years, and I have an excellent credit score. I have also savings, let's say 10k, and I would like to ask for a personal loan of equal amount to cover the expenses related to the move (deposit for renting another house, expenses to move all my things, etc.). I do not want to use my savings because I would like to keep that money available in case of emergency.
I have been a customer of my bank since I moved here, there is a possibility to open a bank account with them abroad, and even that I will move in a country where they have physical branches (even though I am not sure that I will move in one of those countries).
Will a bank allow me to borrow with such reason? or going abroad is a too high risk for them?
