We will assess your particular circumstances and address the consequences of commercial property transactions in relation to business taxes and more.

French Lease Law

In addition to working with purchases and sales of french property, we 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 can distinguish three main types of leases: residential leases, professional and mixed leases (housing and professional practice), and commercial leases. Each of these leases has its specification and is governed by different legislation, and we can assist you in the drafting and comprehension of them. Our team can draft residential or commercial leases to your requirements or review leases drafted by Notaires, estate agents or property developers (in case of leaseback purchase).
