Best French Mortgage Reviews 2012
Some examples of what others said about Best French Mortgage in 2012.
We are now back in the UK having spent nearly three weeks converting an empty shell into the first stages of our second life in France. The property is all we remembered and the departing vendors could not have been more helpful. In addition, the process of completion in France was well conducted and smooth with no hiccups or delays. Many people have worked hard to make this transaction possible and enable us to fulfil our dream. It is very clear to us that without the help of Best French Mortgage this purchase would never have taken place. I speak as someone who uses advisors for legal and corporate finance work every week so I am very familiar with due diligence and the overall process that funders and vendors go through. I can confirm that in my years of experience I have never come across a team as tenacious, helpful, proactive and creative as you and David. Our success is largely based on your efforts under challenging circumstances. We are extremely grateful for the work you have done and the constant support you provided.We return to France in July to take the house to the next stage and spend some quality time at our second home. Thank you again and we would be very happy to act as a referee for any of your clients at any time.
In the end, despite our fears, everything went smoothly. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your efficient assistance with our mortgage application. There were a large number of people involved with the various stages of our purchase and you were undoubtedly the one who caused us least grief! I would be happy to unconditionally recommend Best French Mortgage to future purchasers.
Thank you so much for your great help considered advice.
Thank the lord someone understands me!
First impressions really count and Best French Mortgage impressed from first contact. I have rarely seem such considered and thoughtful detail from an initial enquiry to any company anywhere. Thank you.
Thank you very much. This was a very pleasant surprise. It’s very reassuring to think that there are still people out there that are like you.

After securing the bankers draft and the house insurance on Thursday, Helen and I went to the Notaires office at 3 o’clock yesterday afternoon to hear the Acte being read out. 2 of the daughters of the original owner, the immobilier and the tradacteur also attended. The Acte was 25 pages and with all the other formalities we were in the offices for 2 hours. It was a pleasant and interesting experience and after approximately 50 signatures each the deed was done. We are now the delighted owners of our piece of rural Limousin. The work starts this morning with a visit from the Forestier to remove some trees. We are clearing out the main house whilst waiting for the artisan to look at installing a bathroom. I am returning in Feb with a friend to do a topographical survey to draw the plans for the landscaping and drainage. We have exciting times ahead and we both thank you for all your efforts to make this possible for us.
Hi Lesley, I travelled to France on Sunday, signed the papers yesterday and then returned to the UK: It is all done now!
I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic work you did during this purchase process.
It is rare to find such a positive, knowledgable, and helpful person these days who offers such attention to detail and sticks with the task through to the end. You are an absolute credit to your company and I hope they appreciate what an asset your are. Thank you!
This is how the locals describe the village: Collioure, an idyllic place on the rocky coastline, is situated in the very south of France, 26 km (approx. 15 miles) from the Spanish border. The picturesque village is nestled in an authentic environment. Its small Catalan harbor is sheltered by a quiet bay where the chain or the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean Sea. The exceptionally sunny climate and the north wind “Tramontane” makes Collioure a unique place where well-being and Catalan “art de vivre” have their origins. You can count on having a splendid swim at one of the small coves and several sand and pebble beaches.

A big thank you for helping us with the mortgage for our French cottage in Charente.
A bit of a trauma getting over to France, Brittany Ferries were on strike, so we had to go to Dover instead of Portsmouth, but white van man and women (and the dog!) got over there and not much later than planned.
No problems with the house. The Notaire signed on our behalf by proxy, and the monies were where they were supposed to be.
We had a week of decorating and have made the place a lot brighter.
It has been one of our least traumatic house purchases and we are really pleased to have used your company and grateful for all your help and advice along the way.
Thanks again, you have been invaluable.

Just a quick note to thank you all for your help with mortgage application. We got the keys on Friday and are now very happy in our new French home. It’s been a difficult process due to the vendor’s situation but we got there in the end – in no small part down to all your help. Thanks once again.
Thank you so much for all your help, the bank has come back with a really good offer of a fixed rate and extra repayments without penalty. I’ll pass on your details to anyone else looking, again really appreciate it, cheers.
It all went like clockwork. Afterwards we camped in the house and had a BBQ with a few friends. Still don’t have electricity so still a few adventures ahead. Many thanks for all your help and hard work, best wishes.
Thanks for all your help in sorting it all out. I’d signed the POA at the Notaires and it was all sorted by the 30th. 3 weeks later and I’m back in the UK wishing I was not at work and was actually still in France! Thanks again.

We now own a house in France and feeling very excited, but daresay the journey has not ended yet! But we wanted to thank you very much for all your help with the French mortgage, it’s been hugely appreciated.

We got back just after midnight, and no sleep as it was quite a rough crossing so only just checking emails now.
All went well thanks, we finally own the property – although it was eventful to the very last second as the agent/translator was 15 mins late and hadn’t provided the Notaire with a copy of the home insurance – fortunately, I took all my papers with me so gave her a copy there and then – phew…..
All that remains is for me to thank you again for all of your help and to say I would definitely recommend your services to all of my friends.

Many thanks again for all your help and I’m just confirming that we have received the offer and will post it back after the 10-day cooling off period on our return to France.
The deal is done! We move in at the end of the month. Thank you so much for all your help.
As this application is now nearing completion I just wanted to contact you and let you know what an absolute star Lesley has been.
My mortgage application for €32,000 is probably one of the smallest your company have dealt with, and my own circumstances have made it quite an uphill struggle due to the French wanting personal details from my father who is supporting our purchase. Add to this the fact that I changed my mind on property, borrowing amount and repayment type: I doubt I have been the easiest of clients.
Despite all of this, Lesley has pushed on and on and kept the momentum going – I have had replies from her generally within hours of a question (even when she was on holiday) and bank requests have been passed on to me immediately. Lesley’s attitude has helped me through the dark days when to be honest I was questioning whether it was worth all the grief.
I would without a shadow of a doubt recommend Best French Mortgage to anyone and I cannot praise Lesley enough.
A short email to say that everything went to plan last Friday and we successfully got the keys to the house and spent a long weekend moving boxes!
Thank you very much for your help through the process and helping us to make a successful application.

Thanks again for all your help: I think we would have been at a loss without it and we are most grateful.

Thank you so much for your help. We will keep in touch and Matthew and I will be more than happy to recommend Best French Mortgage to anyone or provide any personal recommendation for your company and services.
Your second email is very interesting and I am surprised that [the other broker] did not provide us with that information. I have written to the agents to confirm that we could not obtain a mortgage through their recommended broker. I have in fact got more information through you in the past couple of days than the agents recommended broker so have not given up hope of buying a property in France totally. I will come back to you as soon as we have found a correctly priced property.
