Your Attika agent will be happy to put you in touch with brokers who speak your language and who will make the process easy for you. Attika works with the best institutions on the Riviera and overseas to ensure you get the best deal possible for your property purchase.

For English speakers we particularly recommend IPF  - who have helped many of our clients obtain their financing

Currency When you are paying your mortgage it's usually beneficial to use a currency broker so as to get the very best deal possible for your exchange rate. Attika recommends you set up an account with Currencies Direct. Whether you are transferring money from your home bank account to your French account in a one off lump sum to pay for a property, or sending regular transfers to cover mortgage repayments and utility bills, it is important that you consider the costs of transferring your cash over to an overseas bank.

Many banks charge quite a lot of money for the service and do not offer great exchange rates.
