International Private Finance

Established in 2008, IPF quickly became the leading French mortgage broker for non-residents. Fully authorised by the FCA in the UK and Orias in France, IPF has a 94% mortgage approval rating, higher than any other broker, and almost double that of the banks’ own sales teams. It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking to borrow €150,000 or €10 million, IPF has an extensive network of private and retail banks that will suit any budget. Wendy’s Houses has worked with IPF since 2010 and has found their service and expertise unparalleled.

Fiona Watts is IPF’s managing director and most experienced Mortgage Consultant and looks after all Wendy’s Houses’ clients. Dual qualified in the UK and France, Fiona and her assistants will work with you through every stage of the purchase process. The French banks place such a value on the mortgages that Fiona and the IPF team arrange, that they employ an underwriter specifically to fast-track IPF’s files, as well as give IPF clients exclusive access to discounted rates and fees, and terms that are often not available through other brokers or when approaching lenders directly.

Regardless of where you are in your French property purchase, you will find a wealth of helpful tools and resources on their website; including a French mortgage calculator, the latest French mortgage rates and a step-by-step guide to the French mortgage and French purchase process.
