Why Buy French Leaseback?
Everyone knows that the world is going through a financial crisis, but we also know that eventually things will improve again. French Leaseback Schemes have been popular investments for the nearly 40 years, but as a long term investment, the best time to buy is when interest rates are low.
Low Interest Rates - Fixed for 25 years
The interest rates on mortgages in France can be fixed for the term of the mortgage, say 20 or 25 years. We can currently arrange mortgages in France with interest rates of between 2.3% - 3.5%. Whereas, the Guaranteed rental from the property starts at 3.5% - 4.5% in year 1 and increases every year with inflation.
19.6% VAT Rebate
Everyone who buys a French Leaseback property receives the up front 19.6% VAT rebate, which acts as your deposit.
Low Risk Investment, In a Volatile World
With a Guaranteed Income that increases with inflation, French Leasebacks offer a low risk property investment that virtually pays for itself. You also don't have any of the hassles that go with normal property investments, like having to find tenants, arrange for cleaners or maintain the property.
On top of these advantages, you can also have holidays in your investment. (The majority of people who own holiday homes in France, only actually live in them for a few weeks of the year.)
Buy with your SIPP
Investing into a French Leaseback allows you to diversify your pension investments and currency exposure. The guaranteed income makes the properties an ideal long term investment.
