Buying in France is a very different process than buying in the UK. It’s not just the legal system that changes, but the mentality isn’t the same either.

Everyone has, at some point, seen a programme on the television or heard of a friend of a friend who lived through a real nightmare whilst trying to buy their long saved for home in France.

If you are well advised and supported throughout the proceedings, then everything should run smoothly. It’s when you don’t know the system and happen to fall into the hands of incompetent or dishonest professionals that things go wrong.

Rachel can help you avoid that and ensure that things run as smoothly as possible. An issue comes up despite all the careful ground work? No worries, She’s there to support you and to try to ensure that the issue is resolved in your best interests.

The whole thing always throws up lots of questions too. When you’re unfamiliar with how it’s done, then you obviously require more information to feel reassured. This is when you need someone who’s happy and willing to answer all of those interrogations with patience and good humour.
