The process of buying a property in France is very different to that of the UK. Many prospective buyers fail to fully research the buying process and the specific steps associated with it. Combine this with a potential language barrier and a series of ‘hidden costs’, and you can see how the dream of owning a home in France can quickly turn into a costly nightmare.

The France Property Guide is a free resource to help you avoid the pitfalls so you are able to buy your property in France safely and successfully. Covering dozens of topics written by property experts and expats who have been through the process, you will find everything you need to successfully buy a property in France. Topics include finding the right property for you, navigating the buying process itself, dealing with French law, currency and financial matters, local French customs, and getting to grips with the language.

For ease of use, we have collated all of this information into the France Buying Guide – a free step by step guide that leads you through the buying process so you don’t fall into the same traps.
