|French Property France|
|If you are
thinking of buying
a property in France then this page will
help you. La Giraudiere is primarly a website that provides training or
learning programs in the south west of France. We are known
volunteers project and maybe also for the internships we offer. So you
would probably think why does La Giraudiere have a page about French
Property. We have had many volunteers arrive on our program and when asked why
they choose La Giraudiere the answer was,
"we are thinking of moving to France and buying a French property and when we saw the volunteers project
we thought it a good way to sample France before we plunged in"
There reason was a very good one and they were to be pleasantly surprised as during their stay Paul, the project director, would give them little stories or snippets of information about the problems he and the other shareholders of La Giraudiere had during the purchasing and setting up process.
For instance, the promesse de vente the agreement to buy and sale. What you can add and what you should add, things you would not think about if buying in the UK like asking that all the electrical switches and sockets, yes wall sockets are left in place! Did you know that the buyer must have the wood and timbers checked for termites and other parasites? Is there a fosse septique installed when was it checked when was it emptied are all things you need to know.
Once you have added at least 6 conditions to the promesse de vente and you and the seller have signed it, all being well you may buy your dream French house within 3 months of signing at which point you will be asked to sign the Acte de Vente a document which again does not exists in the UK.
Once you have your property you may wish to change or add something well here again is another minfield just waiting to trip you up. Yes the famous permis de construire.
