At Charnock Hughes we understand that the world is becoming increasingly smaller; international buyers are securing property in the UK whilst UK buyers are investing in properties overseas. We have assisted clients to obtain finance in both circumstances.

The financial model and regulations abroad often differ to those in the UK market and therefore our specialists in international property transactions can provide specialist advice and regulated finance for foreign investment.

Within the team we have currency advisors and specialists who speak various languages including Russian, French and Spanish to assist with overseas transactions.

Whether it is a holiday home in Spain or a Ski Chalet in France, Charnock Hughes has access to lending platforms to suit any clients buying outside of the UK with strong relationships with foreign lenders both high street and more specialised offshore.

We provide finance advice for purchases in the following countries:

  • France & Monaco
  • Spain (mainland and the islands)
  • Portugal
  • Switzerland
  • Italy
  • United States
  • Australia & New Zealand
  • Canada (British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Alberta)
  • Dubai (selected developments only)
  • Hong Kong & Singapore
  • Caribbean

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up with repayments on a mortgage.

Changes in the exchange rate may increase the sterling equivalent of your debt.

There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The precise amount will depend upon your circumstances but we estimate that it will be 1% of the loan i.e. £1000 on a £100,000 mortgage.
