Expert advice on how to buy and sell property in France
Buying property can be stressful at the best of times: when you factor in a different language, culture and legal system it can be even more so. The aim of the Mayo Wynne Baxter French Property Team is to de-mystify the whole process and make your purchase the enjoyable experience it should be. We do this by providing comprehensive, clear and timely advice so that you are not just aware of the steps to take and pitfalls to avoid but also fully understand the process.
This ethos under-pins all our French property services. By appointing Mayo Wynne Baxter you have the certainty of knowing that whatever other professionals are involved our duty is to act in your best interests at all times.
We have many years experience of assisting clients with French property matters and, in the context of a purchase for example, it is extremely rare that we do not recommend some amendment to the documentation in order to fully protect our clients’ interests.
Whatever your requirements we offer flexible, tailor-made services.
Independant, bilingual advice from Mayo Wynne Baxter
It would be unwise to assume that simply because France is a member of the European Union its rules and laws are similar to England. France has:
- A completely different legal and taxation system
- Inheritance tax rates as high as 60%
- No automatic right of survivorship for joint owners
There are often cost effective ways in which to structure your purchase so as to achieve a result closer to the English position.
At Mayo Wynne Baxter, we provide the specialist advice needed to ensure that you take the positive steps required.
