When we asked expats in UK if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...

"Yes, foreigners are allowed to own property in England. Non-UK citizens are able to purchase residential and commercial property in England, as long as they meet certain criteria. This includes having the necessary funds to purchase the property, and obtaining the necessary permission from the UK government. In addition, foreign buyers may be subject to additional taxes and fees," said a member in UK.
