From negotiation to completion

For a lot of people, buying a house remains an exciting adventure, especially if the house is located abroad in a country with different laws and regulations. This is the reason why our services continue where other estate agents’ stop.

After verbal negotiation is completed, all the agreements are drafted using a UNIS model contract. Our estate agency is a member of UNIS, a regulating organization within our field. This ensures that we, and of course the contracts we use, are always up to date, as far as new rules and regulations are concerned. We make sure that all the necessary surveys are carried out, such as asbestos, lead contained in paints, electrical installations, energy-rating certificates, septic tank systems as they form part of the official contractual documents. To allow you to understand the purchasing agreement and its attached documents (in French: “Compromis de vente et Diagnostics immobiliers”), we shall provide you with an English explanation of it. This is to make you feel more comfortable as and when the time to sign the purchase agreement for your new house has come!

On the day of completion, we will view the house with you one last time and take meter readings. We will ensure that all utilities on site are subscribed to in your name. To smoothen your start in France as much as possible, we can also help you open a French bank account or set up any necessary insurance. We can also assist you with contractors contact details and quotes.
