French Property

Our French Property Department is ideally suited to assisting the most inexperienced and non-French speaking clients, as well as those who are more familiar with French and the French legal system. 

Each member of the team is fully bi-lingual and has much experience in dealing with French property law and related matters.  The team is happy to take time to advise clients clearly and as simply as possible as to the French legal processes, understanding that such processes may be completely unfamiliar to you.
