Dear Des
I am looking to purchase a house in France to have as a holiday home as I currently live in the Netherlands.
I have been dealing with a mortgage broker and he has confirmed that I would need to open a French bank account in order for the mortgage payments to be made. I did contact Britline as I am British but they confirmed that they only deal with France, UK or Ireland residents. Do you know of any other banks that I can contact that would be able to advise on setting up a French bank account?
Thank you,
