Buying an Overseas Property

You have discovered your dream overseas property, signed the paperwork and now need to pay for it. Wherever in the world you are buying a property, your decision on how to send the money is equally as important as your decision on where to buy your overseas property. This is because of the potential to lose thousands of pounds on your international money transfers.

Most commonly when buying an overseas property, you will be asked to pay a deposit and the balance upon completion usually a few months later. Buying off-plan may involve stage payments with a final one-off payment on completion.

Your dedicated Currency Expert will help you devise a currency strategy to mitigate currency market volatility risks during this period, helping to protect against potentially losing thousands to unfavourable currency market movements.

Finally, your overseas property purchase has completed, you will most likely need to make on-going maintenance, service and local tax payments on your overseas property. Your Currency Expert at Hawk FX will be able to lock in an exchange rate for up to two years for these payments, ensuring there are no sudden increases in costs due to unfavourable currency market movements.

Selling an Overseas Property

When selling an overseas property, as with buying, guidance from a Currency Expert is essential to avoid losing thousands of pounds sterling when you receive payment for the sale of your overseas property.

Similar to the buying process, selling an overseas property will commonly involve an interval between agreement and receiving payment. However, unfavourable currency market movements could result in you potentially receiving thousands of pounds less than expected.

Hawk FX can lock in the exchange rate, ensuring you know exactly how much you will receive in pounds sterling.
