Make ownership costs manageable with Smart Currency Exchange

Utilities bills, mortgage payments, community fees, insurance, garden or pool maintenance – it’s not just the act of buying an overseas home that costs money, but once you’re a happy owner, you’ll need to cover on-going running costs too.

Home ownership costs money wherever a property is, and for most non-resident owners it requires a regular transfer of funds from the UK to a foreign bank account. Cue Smart Currency Exchange, a payment specialist that will take the hassle out of sending foreign currency abroad and save you money through highly competitive exchange rates, typically 2-4 per cent better than a high street bank. Their clients include British people with overseas property and non-resident owners of property in the UK.

Smart Currency Exchange also saves clients’ money by not charging expensive fees for regular, lower value transfers. A typical UK bank charge to make a foreign currency transfer is £20-£25, regardless of its value – Smart Currency only charges a fee on transfers worth £3,000 or less and even then they are minimal (£5 for a euro transfer, £10 for a dollar transfer).

Even better, Smart Currency offers a number of money-saving solutions for clients who need to make small, regular payments abroad. These include forward-purchasing enough currency to cover a series of future or regular foreign payments – this could be done when a particularly favourable exchange rate is achievable. Your account manager will be able to organise how often you want to make transfers and keep you up to speed with the movement of the exchange rate.

For buyers and owners of overseas property, Smart Currency Exchange will find a solution that best suits your requirements. To speak to their experienced currency team today, open a free, no-obligation account. It only takes minutes and could save you thousands!
