Buying a property abroad
Following their retirement, Mr and Mrs X wanted to buy a holiday home in France to enjoy with their children and grandchildren. Having never bought a property abroad before they weren’t sure where to start.
Currency//UK’s Private Client team were able to guide them through the whole process, transferring their pounds into euros at a desirable exchange rate, and dealt directly with the Notaire to make the process as easy as possible for the couple.
As can be the case with property purchases, it took over six months for the deal to go through, by which point the exchange rate had moved against Mr and Mrs X. This wasn’t a problem however as Currency//UK’s team were able to lock in the exchange rate for the couple at the start of the process meaning they could still afford their dream home despite the Pound weakening.
