Living France - - PROPERTIES FOR SALE - Find thou­sands of prop­er­ties for sale on our web­site France Prop­erty Shop

Don’t be tempted to sign a sales con­tract un­less you are sure; once the cool­ing-off pe­riod is over, it is legally bind­ing and if you pull out you will lose your de­posit.

Don’t for­get that the no­taire will make a charge of 6.5-10% in ad­di­tion to the pur­chase price of the prop­erty (this amount is dif­fer­ent for new­builds). The cheaper the prop­erty, the higher the per­cent­age charged; this amount con­sists of the no­taire’s fixed fees and tax.

Don’t for­get to al­low for the ex­pense of an in­ter­preter be­ing present if your French lan­guage skills are poor; ask your agent or no­taire about this as they may be able to help.

Don’t for­get that sur­veys are not com­mon­place in France but you can still ar­range one.
