The UK is surrounded by water but secure residential moorings are very hard to find.
The most important thing to do before you buy a houseboat is to find a mooring or ensure the boat you are buying comes with the transfer of the mooring it is currently on.
Provided you introduce yourself personally to mooring owners, moorings can be transferred without too many problems.
A marina/mooring owner does have the right to make appropriate checks on any potential new mooring tenant.
Moorings are generally agreed on a rolling 1,3,6 or 12 month contract and are charged from £1 per foot per week. It's also possible to purchase a mooring on a freehold basis.
