the acquisition of property in France is a procedure regulated by law.
Once you have made your choice, an offer must be made and transmitted to a notary: public official who is charged of writing the acts and conduct the sale.
A first act has to be signed: the promise of sale and the sale commitment. At this point, a part of the total purchase is due (5% to 10%), which will be subtracted from the final amount, at the signature of the sale.
The notary performs various administrative procedures, for a length of 2 to 3 months.
. After this period of time, the notary shall convene the two parties for a definitive purchase, where the final payment is made, as well as the notary fees.
The notary fees represent 7% to 10% of the total amount. 8/10 of the value of the property is for the state, 1/10 represents the paperwork fees and 1/10 represents the remuneration of the agency.
