Notaires (notaries)


Notaires play a vital role in purchasing French properties, and it is important to understand how they can be used to advantage, and also how much they charge. The literal equivalent in English is 'notary', although they are responsible for a range of jobs connected to your sale which we clearly explain to French Property Renovation clients.

One particularly interesting role is that they tend to hear about properties that may never reach the Estate Agents. Any serious buyer should make sure that this information is available, and we are on hand to make sure that you know about the best deals.

If you are interested in this particular avenue of research we would point out that you are normally better off starting off with traditional estate agents who provide the search service free of charge. Indeed some of the better ones should have developed contacts with notaires themselves. French Property Renovation are happy to provide this service but will have to charge you for this as we do not receive commissions on sales as Estate Agents do.
