UK overseas mortgage specialist Conti Financial Services and independent mortgage broker Charcol have entered into a partnership to offer financial provision for holiday, investment and retirement properties in over 45 countries.
From 4 June 2008, Conti’s mortgage services are exclusively referred to Charcol clients seeking to purchase properties abroad through Charcol’s website, www.charcol.co.uk. Existing overseas property owners can also benefit from the partnership through Conti’s remortgaging service, available in 15 countries across Europe, Africa and the US.
Conti said the market for overseas property remains buoyant despite the current credit crunch. Simon Conn, Conti sales and marketing director, commented: “This is an exciting new partnership, enabling Charcol clients to have access to hundreds of mortgage deals for the purchase or refinancing of overseas residential property.”
Charcol clients will have access to a mortgage calculator to find out how much they can borrow, and can obtain a detailed quote for properties they are interested in. If they wish to proceed with the mortgage application, their details will then be forwarded to Conti’s team of country specialists to process the mortgage through to completion.
