IEA France real estate

Service and Law Department


Let us guide you through the process of buying and selling in France

Our Service and Law Department, operated by bi-lingual and qualified staff, has been established in order to assist buyers of French Property.
Our French Law experts are at your service and will be happy to help you with all matters relating to buying or selling property in France.

Assistance from our Service and Law Department

All property sales that are made/processed through a member of the IEA France Network are guaranteed a quality service. You are accompanied from the moment you find your “dream home” right through to the completion date. You will benefit from a service which has been created to give the buyer ‘a complete peace of mind’. Our Service and Law Department will offer you legal assistance in regard to the following:-

  • An explanation in all aspects of inheritance law
  • The best way to buy property in France
  • An explanation of the execution of the “compromis de vente” (sale contract)
  • Guidance and advice in relation to mortgage processes
  • The deposit for the property purchase and subsequent bank transfers
  • Checking of the draft final contract
  • Translation and assistance during the signing of the final contract

All legal documentation is bi-lingual (French / English) and is recognised by the Notaires.

The assistance of our Service and Law Department is offered to all of our clients buying or selling property in France through the IEA France Network at no additional charge. All costs are covered within our real estate agency commissions.

Advice from our Service and Law Department

If you sell or buy property in France independently, either through a real estate agency which is not a member of the IEA France Network, or buy a French property from a private individual, the Service and Law Department of IEA France can give you professional and independent advice on all aspects of French Property Law. This will include:-

  • General advice regarding the process of the purchase
  • The best way to buy property in France
  • Assistance of each party and the execution of the ‘compromis de vente’ ( sale contract)
  • A translation and explanation of all sale contracts not drawn up by ourselves
  • Advice on inheritance issues
  • Advice on all tax aspects
  • Creation of a society or company (ie: the drawing up of the status and registration of the society...)
  • Advice on the relevance of particular clauses in the status of the society or company
  • An explanation and translation of a change of matrimonial scheme
  • Advice and drawing up of a lease

Any advice given by the Service and Law Department is charged on an individual fee basis which will be determined in accordance with the complexity of the work involved. More details about fees
