"Many thanks for keeping me in touch with the best exchange rate at the time you did. It looks as though I have saved £7000 on the deal compared with waiting until now."

Just like when you are buying a property abroad, if you have decided to sell your overseas property, then making sure you have looked after the currency exchange is essential.
The actual process is very similar to when you're buying currency, however there are a few things to consider. For example, you might not be in the country on completion, so it is important you have made all the necessary arrangements in advance of the completion date.
Also, the time between when you agree to sell your property and completion can be several months. What happens to exchange rates in the interim will affect how many pounds you receive. If appropriate you can fix your exchange rate; that way you know exactly how much sterling you are going to receive.
