Meet James!

James was selling a property in France and looking into how he could move the money back to the UK.
What's the situation?
James was looking for a way to easily transfer money from Euros to Pounds with a good exchange rate.
After being introduced by a French estate agent, James used Lumon to transfer the funds, raised from a house sale in France, back to the UK.

The service from Lumon was exceptional! There were no issues from start to finish, everything was seamless.

James Law used LUMON to transfer the proceeds from a French property sale back to the UK. He was recommended to LUMON by his immobilier, Michelle Jones at Leggett Immobilier in the French Alps.

James appointed LUMON for his overseas payments, opened an account within a few minutes over the phone, and spoke to his account manager. He was issued his personalised PROXY which was sent to the Notaire and once the completion took place, the Notaire arranged a direct transfer to James’ LUMON e-account in France.

The sale proceedse arrived shortly after and James was automatically notified via email, text, and phone from his account manager. They in turn assisted with live information on the currency market so that James could make an educated and informed decision on how to manage his overseas payment.

Once the instruction had been taken to complete the exchange from Euros to Pounds Sterling, the onward transfer was released automatically and arrived very quickly into James’ bank account. In James’ words, “Everything was done professionally, the due diligence and security checks were far from onerous. I can’t think of anything I would have changed!”
