you just revert to your lender's standard variable rate. At the moment, interest rates are both low and stable, so being on the SVR isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I don't think council tax is equivalent to property taxes because the resident not the owner is responsible for council tax.

Do you have anything like stamp duty? In the UK over a certain threshold, you have to pay stamp duty tax, which is a percentage of the purchase price (e.g. 1% on properties 125k 250k, 3% 250k - 500k etc.). It's a one off fee which you have to pay on completion.
