Buying a property abroad might sound like a mine-field sometimes, and it is very important that you receive the best advice to make an educated decision on your property investment in France. Erna Low Property cannot give you legal advice, but we can recommend you the services of various companies to help you through your process.
The buying process in France is very secure and aimed towards the protection of the buyers. A public notary will be in charge of the transaction in order to ensure that all papers are in order and in-line with current French property legislation. The public notary is working on behalf of both the vendor and buyers, but you can also appoint your own public notary if you wish - you won’t have to pay any more legal fees if you decide to do so, but it might delay the transaction if you do so.
Don’t hesitate to speak to us and we will recommend you the legal advice from our network of partners or English speaking public notaries in France to assist you legally with your project.
