Buying and selling French property

Buying a house in France often starts as a dream - so it's exciting when you're ready to make it happen. After all, it's something you've worked hard towards, and you want it to go smoothly.

That's where we can help. Our French law experts will keep the process straightforward - and avoid complications! Our priority is to keep your transaction on track, so that you know everything is being taken care of. Whether you're buying an older property, a new build or bare land to build on, we can help you make it happen.

Why do I need a French solicitor?

The French system is very different to the UK system, and there are different laws and processes in France which affect your transaction. They're notoriously tricky to navigate, even if you have excellent French! ! Because things work so differently in France, it's very easy to find yourself in a difficult situation.

Expert advice minimises the stress, and risks, of dealing with things yourself. Our French solicitors are here to protect you. We'll keep everything moving forwards with your best interests in mind. A smooth transaction gives you time to focus on what's important, rather than worrying about the small print.
