Important points to consider when building an overseas residential property
With his many years of being involved in the overseas property market, one of the UK’s leading overseas property experts, Simon Conn, has launched a new animation sharing his top tips for building a house overseas, after experiencing the problems and heartache potential clients have encountered when trying to build the house of their dreams.
With over 35 years’ experience within the overseas property/mortgage industry, Simon has shared his insights on how to build and manage a property overseas, and what pitfalls to try and avoid.
Simon acknowledged that many people would be completely consumed by the current global pandemic and other difficulties that may have been added by the post Brexit fallout.
However, he comments: “This period of enforced isolation has given us time to reflect and dream about travelling abroad as soon as it’s safe to do so. I am hoping this animation will provide an insight to those people who may consider building an overseas property as a future investment (rather than purchasing a completed house/villa) and explain what steps they should undertake before starting on such a project.”
“With the help of reliable contractors and taking the right legal, survey and financial advice, it should hopefully lead to a successfully completed property.
The jargon-free animation tackles building plots, the possibility for construction, the challenge of language barriers and how to manage your property from a distance. The animation also highlights the different types of practices/processes you may need to be aware of compared to building a property in your home country.
“This animation is a basic and visual way to share my most frequently asked questions regarding building a house overseas,” Simon explained. “If anyone has any questions or needs the right contacts to take their next steps towards building their dream home, then they are welcome to call or email me to discuss further.”
The new free animation launches on March 25th on the website and can be watched here. For further advice on mortgages and properties overseas, please contact Simon Conn at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.simonconn.com.
