Any foreign nationals can buy a property in France as a secondary or main residence. The French system of conveyancing law is different and despite being as safe as the English one, the legislation and practice are different. This is a stressful time for everybody due to the fact that they are not only dealing with a foreign legal system but also a foreign language.
The conveyancing itself is not complicated but will still require attention to make sure that you do not find out any pitfalls before completing it. As a
purchaser, it is normal that you focus on the purchase, sometimes to the detriment of estate planning. Buying and having estate planning at the same
time can be useful and prevent any unexpected issues in the long term.
