Purchasing or selling property in France when you are a foreigner is a path that requires time and expertise: language barrier, analyse of the real estate market, understanding of the legal rules, negotiation of the sale or purchase conditions, understanding of the contracts to be signed and of their consequences…

The French laws and regulation are indeed complex, and the investor needs to be advised by a legal professional: the notary is one.

Our team will accompany you through all these steps, in French or in English, and will advise you in your best interests.

Our Office has domestic jurisdiction and can thus intervene throughout France.
