Legal Advice

Buying a property in France often starts as a dream

At Tees our French legal team are there to stop it turning into a nightmare. Ensuring you have as little stress as possible throughout the process.

The questions you need to address will vary depending on the type of property you are buying (old, new, off-plan or leaseback, house or apartment, bare land to build on, etc.) Our legal team includes a fully qualified French bi-lingual avocat so we are best placed to provide the advice and assistance you need.

If you need to set up a French company as a vehicle to purchase a property, the cost of this is £1,600 plus VAT with disbursements payable in France of 800 Euros.

Speak to one of our expert Tees France team and we will explain the options available to you in plain language with no obligation.
