    ​Ignoring recent UK unemployment data, the pound rallied to a high of €1.439 this morning on the Euro. The pound also staged a strong recovery on the dollar hitting above $1.563 after dropping sharply at the start of this month.

    “The plights of the Eurozone are playing into the hands of British property investors,” comments Nicholas Leach, Partner at Athena Advisors. “These are the best rates we’ve seen for almost eight years, since the start of November 2007. On a €500,000 property British buyers have become more than £51,000 better off, a saving of over 10% in just 12 months.”

More About Purchase Types

French Leaseback

With Leaseback properties you also own the freehold title, yet here you lease the property back to a management company who provide full property management, renting it out on your behalf and generating rental income at the same time. You may also be able to reclaim 20% VAT on the purchase price.. Learn more...


Buy to let is the traditional type of property investment where you own a freehold property entirely for the purposes of investment, renting it out privately or normally through a local lettings agent.

Classic freehold

You own the freehold title to the property, using as either a main or second residence and therefore renting and living there as much as your position allows.


Many people are looking towards real estate as an investment option for their SIPPs (Self-Invested Personal Pensions). Depending on the location SIPP-able property investments can offer much better long-term growth prospects than more traditional investment products.
