Is it possible to cancel a compromise de vente because of increased risk of natural disaster? in French Legal Issues Posted August 26, 2010 Ugo my heart does out to you - but I do think you are making the right decision. You would never forgive yourself if anything ever happened, and Insurance would have been a nightmare. I feel sorry for the vendor too - not their fault. Good luck with the hunt for another perfect chalet, in the right place. Bonne chance.
