Welcome to the France Buying Guide!
The France Buying Guide was set up as a free resource to help Brits successfully buy a property in France. The guide is written by experts, alongside real-life experiences from expats who have been through the process themselves; it covers the multitude of steps taken during this process, from finding the right property to navigating through the buying process, French law, currency, tax and financial matters, local French customs and getting to grips with the language.
We aim to help you throughout your journey, show you how to avoid the pitfalls, and enjoy the journey of building a life for yourself in France!
One of our key writers is Alexis Goldberg, who has spent nearly three years renovating her character house in Languedoc with her husband Rod. In this time, she has been through the French buying process, developed a network of contacts, dealt with finances, taxes, tradesman and schools to socialising and integrated in a new community.
“We’ve learnt - and continue to learn - so much, which is why I feel the need to share our knowledge with other people trying to buy in France, or move here. I write regular blogs and articles offering practical information about all aspects of buying French property and the lifestyle here.”
