• Engaging a notaire who is dependant from the seller
• Getting your currency right
Getting your currency right is a hot topic at the moment with the boost of the sterling against the euro in 2015 and the early part of 2016, and the exchange rate now fluctuating, means you really need to consider speaking to a currency exchange specialist early on in the buying process.

If you would prefer to speak to one of their dedicated brokers you can call UK: 01442 892060, to get an update on the currency options available, in particular forward contracts. A forward contract allows you to set the rate for up to two years. When your property price has been agreed but the completion date is still a few weeks or months away, a forward contract guarantees the price as the formalities are concluded, protecting you from any market volatility. Or if you feel that the exchange rate is high but you haven’t found the right property you can use the forward contract to hold the rate for up to two years with just a 10% deposit (payable within two working days) and then settle the balance before the contract expires.
Another aspect which many buyers need to consider early on in the searching and buying process is the French tax system, which is by no means straightforward. Fortunately UK buyers have access to a very credible tax specialists company www.kentingtons.com. Director Robert Kent has offices in the south of France and his partner Duncan Campbell is based in the UK. We recommend you contact either Robert or Duncan if you have any tax queries, UK: 08451 23 84 23 or France: 0810 23 84 23.
Of course all of the above information is only relevant when you find your property, so start your search today, visit our website www.foremostpropertygroup.co.uk to view thousands of properties for all budgets and find your ideal French property.
