Buying property abroad is always a big step and if you are looking to buy property abroad, it can be a daunting experience, especially if it’s in a country where you’re not familiar with either the buying process or the language.  British-Owned Property Abroad is a collection of properties that have already appealed to international buyers at least once and are very likely to tick many boxes for international buyers.  Whether that be a tangible quality, a certain style or a desirable location.  It’s also reassuring to know that if a British family has paved the way it is very likely that the property, and its’ location will have many of the features you’re looking for.  

Wherever possible, vendors complete a home instruction manual, so that when you get the keys to your new home, you have a full set of instructions, in english, on everything from how to start the boiler to where to find the best cup of coffee in the morning - all the information you need to find your way around your new home from home, right from the start.


As a British vendor, if you have a property abroad you are looking to sell, it is very likely to appeal to an international buyer.  Not only that, but the majority of our buyers are english-speaking, which our vendors find is invaluable for a continuity of understanding throughout the sales process.

Foreign Exchange

For foreign exchange and international money transfer, British-Owned Property Abroad recommend Frontier Pay. 

If you are making international transfers through your own bank, the chances are they will not only be charging you a substantial fee for the service but will also be doing so at a poor exchange rate. Frontier Pay are specialist foreign exchange brokers. By dealing directly in the currency markets, they miss out the middlemen and get you as close to the 'interbank' rate as is possible.

Independently rated 5/5 by Trustpilot, they can typically save you 3-4% of the total transaction value by comparison with High Street banks.
