We've almost been in our house for nearly a year now and I thought I'd just send a 'thank you'.
5 May 2022 - J Cowles - Nouvelle Aquitaine

"We've almost been in our house for a year now and I thought I'd just send you a 'thank you'. I know you were only doing your job but you did it very well. Your calm professional manner throughout was a great help in what was a fairly stressful time. Given what is happening to interest rates in the UK a 2.1% lifetime rate for a mortgage seems an absolute bargain. I recommend your company whenever I can."

"...we were kept up to speed with accurate information all throughout the process."
5 May 2022 - Mr H - Les Houches

"Louis was great, we were kept up to speed with accurate information all throughout the process for our purchase in France. We didn't know what we should/shouldn't do and relied heavily on Louis' advice, as this was our first property purchase overseas. Can't thank Louis and his team enough!"

An amazing quality of personal service...
22 Apr 2022 - Simon H - Auvergne - Rhône-Alpes

"I was hugely impressed by the professionalism, patience, efficiency and general excellence of all interactions, advice and guidance. I could not have asked for more and I would recommend IPF to anyone looking to secure a mortgage abroad. The knowledge of the team and the experience was evident from the start and I was supported right through the whole process. An amazing quality of personal service for which I am very grateful."

Louis from IPF was helpful and supportive
18 Feb 2022 - K W Macintosh - Hautes-Pyrénées

"I was surprised and delighted to find that we could get a mortgage from a French bank to buy our holiday house. Louis from IPF was helpful and supportive from my first tentative enquiry right through to contacting me on settlement date. The application process was straightforward once we had got all the documentation in place. Louis kept us briefed at all times and was easy to get hold of if we had any questions. I am happy to recommend both IPF and our mortgage advisor Louis Cornwell."

I was really pleased with the whole service

...incredibly professional and absolute experts...
31 Dec 2021 - Anonymous - Dordogne

"International Private Finance are incredibly professional and absolute experts in dealing with French mortgages. We would not have been able to buy a property in France without their help. Ellie was so efficient and managed to push through our mortgage within a very short timeframe. I would recommend them to anybody buying a French property!"

...reassuring from our very first conversation.
8 Dec 2021 - Steve P (Morzine)

"We asked IPF to help us navigate the process of buying a chalet in France. We had no prior experience nor any idea how involved this is when purchasing from the UK. Fiona was reassuring from our very first conversation. She is professional, knowledgable and very well networked in the French market (Lenders, Agents, Notaries, TAX advisers, Insurers, FX Transactors etc). Ellie who is part of the IPF team was also hugely helpful and a pleasure to work with. Diligent & extremely thorough. We managed to complete 2 weeks ahead of schedule and had IPF not been there helping us through every step I now wonder if we would have reached completion at all. Thank-you."

...went above and beyond for us from start to finish.
6 Dec 2021 - Jane Hamshere (Cannes)

"We engaged the services of IPF to help with the purchase of a property in France. Louis was extremely helpful with every step - went above and beyond for us from start to finish. I would definitely recommend IPF."
