In this new series property expert Andrew Winter goes on an international rescue mission across Europe to help British homeowners who are having major problems selling their foreign properties.
In Selling Houses Abroad Andrew meets homeowners dealing with stagnating markets, property confiscation, legal battles and subsidence. The series also reveals the results of a specially commissioned survey of 6,000 people about other foreign property nightmares, from frustrating bureaucracy to confusing property law and language difficulties.
In the first episode, Andrew travels to Europe to meet Margaret and John Cox, who sold everything they had in the UK to buy a 100 year-old farmhouse in south-west France. They renovated it themselves but now no one wants to buy it...
From Italy to Cyprus and Spain to Montenegro, Andrew leaves no stone unturned in his quest to secure that all important sale.
In this episode of SELLING HOUSES ABROAD, Andrew meets Steve Livesy and Julie Spivey in northern France. Back in 2000, Steve a former firefighter, seized the opportunity to get a toe on the property ladder and bought two dilapidated semis in a remote hamlet in Normandy for just 30 thousand pounds.
