Top 5 Tips When Buying Property In France

Many people British people every year choose to buy a property in France because of the wonderfully relaxed lifestyle France offers. The French have a strong appreciation for the good things in life and many consider them to be among the most cultured people in the world. They have good food and good wine and a more laid back style of life than in the UK, but there are things you need to consider when buying property in France.

  • You need to be realistic, the dream of the epitome stone house that overlooks orchards and sun-kissed hills may not quite be in your price range or even liveable at the price it is selling, as much work may be needed to make it habitable.

     

  • France is amazing when it comes to what it has on offer, it really does have it all; cultured cities, awe-inspiring mountains, rolling hills, nice weather and great beaches, to name a few which is why you need to take the time to consider the location of where you would like to purchase a property in France. Do you want golden beaches and million pound marinas or rocky bluffs and beautiful windswept beaches?

     

  • It is essential that you get an expert on board for your property search in France, the legal system in France is very different to our own and an English-speaking solicitor will be worth their weight in gold. The notary is an essential part of the property purchase process, but don’t think that it is in place to look after your legal interests.

     

  • There will be essential costs that you need to meet such as the money transfer fees, notary fees, legal fees, property registration fees, surveyor’s fees, mortgage fees and estate agent fees. These can be very costly, especially if you add on foreign exchange costs. This is where The Money Cloud can help; we can save you up to 85% on the money transfer to pay for your dream property in France, when compared to using your high street bank.

     

  • Finally, take the time to learn the language. Go to French classes in the UK and take your family too – this will make it much easier to adjust to life in France and you’ll make new friends much quicker too.
