A GROW­ING num­ber of Bri­tish home­own­ers are now choos­ing to move across the Chan­nel per­ma­nently, ac­cord­ing to Pa­trick Joseph, of Leeds-based My French House, who spe­cialises in sourc­ing prop­er­ties.

As well as a de­sire to opt out of stress­ful, cor­po­rate life, avail­abil­ity and af­ford­abil­ity are two of the key fac­tors.

“When I first started sourc­ing prop­erty for Bri­tish buy­ers in 2004 most of my work in­volved find­ing sec­ond homes and ren­o­va­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties for in­vestors look­ing for prop­erty in pop­u­lar hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions that would pro­vide a good rental in­come over the sum­mer months but there has been a def­i­nite shift to­wards re­lo­ca­tion and self-suf­fi­ciency in re­cent years,” says Mr Joseph.
