There will be no issue for a Swedish national as a member of the EU buying/owning or becoming resident in a property on the UK mainland or IoW.

The Channel Islands are a bit different though. I believe they are not actually part of the EU nor are they, for that matter, part of the United Kingdom. They have a separate designation as Crown Dependencies (I seem to recall). As such, they have their own laws and regulations and may / probably do have different residency rules to the rest of the UK.

There are a number of folks here based on the Channel Islands and I'm sure they have a better understanding.

You clearly should take specific advice about buying / regulations etc in either case!

IoW, or mainland... I will start with this area.

Where is best to live on mainland? Close to the water...Not to far from Southampton? any ideas...?

Well, for my money I'd look on the East side towards the New Forest (e.g. Christchurch). Poole area is rather pleasant too but Sandbanks has the reputation for having amongst the most expensive property prices on the planet (and that's not a joke). On the West side perhaps look out towards the Chichester area. But there are (from observation) fantastic places all along the coast. Although we don't have the natural beauty to match some of the scandanavian coastline.

Those are perhaps the more picturesque areas but there has been a lot of development in Southampton and Portsmouth for more urban quayside developments. Your choice!

We might be having a bit of a property (actually mortgage availability) crisis at present but my understanding is that this had barely affected the top end of the market dominated by cash buyers! However, I'm not in that situation myself so no expert!

What's your budget?

There are a few places in Cowes on the Isle of wight - some with their own moorings.

The Isle of Wight is a lovely place but ferry crossings are expensive for the distance involved and deliveries of anything always cost more. Wouldn't bother me though!!!

I've been looking at house prices in the Poole area for a while now and it appears that the mid-range (what was around Ģ200k-Ģ250k) have dropped in price a significant amount.

Hi,

Thanks for all information.

I think i will stay at mainland.... And i donīt know my budget, itīs money from when i am selling my small company. Right now itīs not a big house in money in the company. But with everything my budget will be around 200K-250K Ģ or +100K if everything will go well.

I know i canīt get a very big house. I would like to have little garden and i prefer little free space around my house.

I will check poole, christchurch....

On the way to falmouth...is it much cheaper over their?
