Buying in France with a French Mortgage – a quick overview.
Fri Oct 12 2018 Eleanor Moore 0
When deciding to purchase a property in France, there comes a moment when you decide how you are going to finance your property. Do you release equity in the UK? Use your savings? Take a French mortgage? An important factor to consider when making this decision is that you can’t just release equity or put a mortgage on a French property once you have purchased*, so whatever money you put into the property will remain locked in it until you sell. When considering this point, most buyers prefer to use a mortgage for the maximum leverage possible against the property in France so to keep their cash and equity free for other projects. Another advantage of a French mortgage, which is even more advantageous in times of currency volatility, is you’re minimizing your exposure against the GBP/EURO exchange rate – spreading the risk over a longer duration on minimal amounts that you will need to transfer each month as opposed to having to find £1000’s more, quickly to complete on the purchase in the case of a dip in value between the time of when you agree to purchase and the time when you complete and pay.
