Code of conduct:

Our business deals with money, which is a sensible topic where a trusty and

transparent relationship plays a critical role.

As such, we purposely do not sell any investment nor insurance solutions and have for sole interest to get the financing for which our clients mandated us.

Am I eligible for a loan ? 

Based on French law, anybody can buy properties and real estate in France.

 

It goes the same way with bankability where anyone is buying a property in France he/she is eligible to get a loan from French bank.

 

The truth isn’t that straight but you could consider that there is no legal barrier, which it's a good start!

What are the eligibility criteria for a loan ?

There will have 2 main paths that matter:

The first will be your financial strength where your debt ratio (after project) shall not exceed 30-35%.

The second deals with your relationship with France and personal project.

Why do you want to invest, what ‘s your goal, purpose…?
