Purchase example

Step one
Set your budget
Suppose you find the perfect holiday home. A great place, in an ideal location. Best of all, the price is right. So, you agree to pay the vendor this amount.

€300,000

Step two
Set your rate
You agree the price with the vendor for this ideal holiday home. The exchange rate at this time is €1.20 to £1. So you budget to spend this amount.

€250,000

Step three
Avoid surprises
But when you come to complete the deal, you discover the exchange rate has dropped to €1.13 to £1. So, you now suddenly need to find this amount.

€265,456

We can protect your purchase when buying a property overseas, by locking-in the exchange rate when you agree the price. So, whatever happens in the FX markets won’t derail the sale.
