My wife and I had a bridging loan to move from Normandie to the S of France. Getting it was an administrative nightmare. In the end it was in the name of my French wife because the finance company did not want to understand Brit bank statements! However, it worked out in the end, we got the bridging loan and we moved.

If you start the process for a bridging loan post the info here and I will give you some hints etc.

Shop around (France and UK?), and you may have some success. 2 years ago I purchased to holiday rental appartements in France. My own bank gave me a rate for a mortgage on some of the price. I went to a loan agent (yellow pages) and got a better quote. I went back to my bank and they bettered the agency obtained rate!

Also, ask the notaire for advice, they deal with loans etc everyday for the sale and purchase of properties. I've found notaires very good for informal advice - particularly the "assistants" rather than the big noise himself.
