  1. Ok. Thank you to everybody for their help in here. Maybe I could get the documents sent over to me, I can then go through them with a French speaking friend so I am aware of the content and then have it signed by a solicitor.

    Thanks again and take care.
  2. Thank you for the reply and sorry for the confusion.

    I am asking if the power of attorney and the deeds must be formally translated. The notaire is happy to send me the documents in French, but said the signatures will need to be witnessed by a solicitor over in England.

    If I am to complete this remotely considering the current situation, can I not just have the documents sent in French for me to have translated by one of many friends, which speak fluent French and the simply return with signatures understanding the content of the documents?

    What I don't understand is, why I have to pay extra costs for translation that I don't require as I have many people who can do that for me.

    Kindest regards and thank you very much for your help.
  3. Good evening everybody and I hope things are well.

    I am currently in the process of buying a property in Normandy from my parents. A notaire has been identified and we have been communicating via email.

    The notaire gave us an approximate costing of the process and the figure that would need to be transferred to them for the process to continue. This is fine, but I have now been asked to cover the additional cost of translation either when signing for property in person or a translated copy of the Power of attorney, which could be sent to me in the absence of being able to travel to France at the moment. In addition to this, the translation of the deed will also carry a significant cost.

    Can somebody confirm if the translation is a legal requirement or like when my parents purchased the house, the discussion took place in English when signing for the house.

    I appreciate that I am currently unable to travel to France, but I would prefer to sign for the house in person, if possible, which I hope may be in the summer.

    Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Kindest regards and stay safe.
  4. So...

    I take it from the site that my parents would have to donate the house to me. Does the fact I have two siblings matter?

    Is it not possible to just transfer ownership after payment?

    Does the donation mean that I own the house from the point of donation ,or would this only become active at a later date?

    How is the value of the property calculated? Is it related the amount of money exchanged at the point of sale?

    So many questions! Apologies, but i would like to clarify what it all means and if this is the only and the best option available to us.

    Thank you again.

  6. Thank you to both of you for the information. I will have a read up.
  7. Hi everyone, this is my first visit to the forum, which I am hoping will ease me in to what seems like a minefield.

    My parents have owned a small property in Normandy for approximately 12 years with the intention of making it habitable and to be used as a holiday home. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, the required work has not been completed and the house remains inhabitable.

    It has been decided that they are no longer in a position to move the house forward and have offered ownership to me, their son, to complete the required work so that everybody can enjoy it.

    What I would like some advice on is the easiest and cheapest way of transferring ownership of the property over to me.

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Thank you.
