Any questions: Mortgages April 2011

My wife and I are planning to move to France. In order to do this, we need to sell our house in Sussex and use the proceeds to fund our French home. However, if we can we would prefer to wait until - hopefully - the Pound strengthens against the Euro before we sell up. Is there any way we can arrange things so we can do this and still secure a French mortgage?

Any questions: Inheritance April 2011

Our experts answer your questions on inheritance: My mother (a widow) has lived in the Costa Blanca since November 2004. She is a UK passport holder but a Spanish resident. She has made a will in both the UK and Spain. She has no mortgage and very little money in a Spanish bank account - all her savings are in the UK. She is the sole person on the deeds to her property. I have heard that the Spanish government would be entitled to 40 per cent of the value of her home on her death. Is this correct? Also how does this affect my Mum's savings?
