Agents from across France will be waiting to discuss your property requirements, help you pinpoint the best area for you, make the most of your budget, and show you some of the beautiful homes they have on their books.

If you have a property to sell, you can find an agent/s to help you market it to a targeted audience – all the agents at the exhibition are experienced in selling property in France to French, British and other overseas buyers.
3) Seek legal advice
From explaining how the legal process works when buying a property in France to helping you plan for the future – ensuring the people you wish to inherit your property do so – our legal experts have a wealth of experience in cross-border legal issues.
4) Get answers to your tax questions
Prepare for your French property purchase or relocation to France by meeting with the financial advisers at the exhibition, who will be able to discuss everything from property to income tax, and capital gains to wealth tax.
5) Source the best currency deal
Make the most of your money by using a currency specialist, who can explain how using forward or spot contracts, for example, will enable you to fix the rate where you want it.
