Foreign currency – changing from GBP or USD to EUR
The French property buying process includes a contract called the "Compromis de Vente" where the term of the sale are laid as well as the price – which will be in euros. So if you are living in the UK you will need to convert pounds to euros so you can complete the purchase of your property in France. The same applies if you wish to change dollars to euros or other worldwide currencies.
A Foreign exchange currency broker can offer favourable rates on these transactions and could save you a small sum which go towards a new kitchen, bathroom or swimming pool!
