Why the agent is not on your side

Only protects the seller's interests

Bear in mind the agent only protects the seller as paid by the latter through a sale success fee. 

Doesn't disclose the property flaws

Flaws highlighted in property surveys won’t be reviewed with you for fear of a no-sale.

Has no interest reducing the property price

He gets paid on a percentage of the final price, so his commission would be therefore negatively impacted.

Inserts clauses against you in the contract

He legally only protects the seller by inserting clauses in the sales contract exclusively in his favour.

Doesn't explain your commitments

He won’t take time to explain your commitments at each stage of the process when signing.

Doesn't explain your rights of withdrawal

For fear of seeing you backtrack and therefore not getting paid through the sale success fee.

Get peace of mind with our legal support

Know the property condition

We review and then make a report of property surveys in order for you to ensure the property you have found is defect-free.

Protect your interests

We fully protect your interests throughout the different steps of the whole legal process that applies in France. 

Get legal advice by bilingual lawyer

We provide professional legal advice on different matters: cross-border taxes, inheritance, wills, capital gain taxes.

Get legal translations

We translate all the legal documents into your mother tongue to ensure you have a full understanding before signing and committing.

Don’t take our words for it

French Property Connection was a great support in helping me complete the legal side of my purchase in France. The legal advice provided at each stage of the process as well as documents translations enabled me to slowly move forward with confidence. I would never have expected a process that different from the one that applies in the UK and would have definitely been stuck without any help. Very much recommended to any non-resident looking for ownership in France!
