Property acquisition is a crucial decision within a lifetime. Whether it’s your primary or secondary residence, the decision should not be taken lightly.

We can also advise and help with leasing French property. A lease is a contract where a person, the landlord, provides habitation to another person, the tenant, for a period of time in return for rent.

We have expertise in the three main lease types: residential, professional and mixed (housing and professional practice), and commercial. Each lease has its specifications and is governed by different legislation, and we can assist you in the drafting and comprehension of them.
