Transfer of funds to uk

Postby Charliesangel » Tue Jan 23, 2018 11:52 pm

Hi all...
Can anyone please tell me if someone can transfer euros from sale of a house, to their uk account..? Ive asked 2 banks and they said no, due to the capital gains cap, because of the crisis, so I just wanted to hear about anyone's experiences. Ive heard from a couple of people who said you could transfer it.

My best estimate, but it is only an estimate, is that if the money to purchase the house came from outside Greece and that is provable then it should be possible to transfer it back out. If, however, the purchaser was somebody inside Greece buying the house with money that already existed inside Greece then it probably isn't possible to transfer it back out. I would talk to a lawyer specialising in property law and/or a good accountant.
