We're here to guide you through the house search & purchasing process
Find your dream home in France
Buying property in France is very different to the ‘chain’ process in the UK and other countries. In many ways, it’s a simpler system, but you need to watch out for pitfalls because once you’ve paid your deposit, you are committed to the purchase.
In France, the estate agent is usually paid by the seller not the buyer, so it’s good to have somebody on your side who knows what to look out for. We can find your dream property, handle all the paperwork and conduct the negotiations.
Whatever you’re looking for, we’ll help you find it.
What does the process look like?
Here’s a step by step breakdown
We start with a free consultation, where you can tell us the type of home you are looking for.
We begin the property search, keeping you updated regularly.
We send regular reports of places we think you’ll love, with translations of the property details.
When you see a property you like, we set up an appointment for you to inspect the property. If language is a problem, we can help via video telephone link. We can also accompany you in person or visit on your behalf, but this incurs an extra fee.
Negotiations & Admin
If you decide to buy, we advise on negotiations, arrange a condition report and handle all the administrative detail and notarial paperwork for you. We can also help you to open a French bank account or arrange financing.
