  1. Any news for your area of morbihan here.....? http://www.thdbretagne.bzh/la-fibre-dans-votre-departement/la-fibre-dans-le-morbihan/
  2. You will see here https://www.linternaute.fr/auto/guide-pratique-auto/1408736-montant-des-amendes-le-bareme/ that the normal fine for exceeding the limit by more than 50 kph is 1500 Euros,
  3. Seems to me the price is very similar in France and the UK. A quick comparison shows that our 5000 units a year in France costs around 800 Euros. (£700). the same amount in the UK would be around £750. Those figures include the standing charges and taxes.
  4. Ryanair do Bristol Limoges which is a shorter journey for you, and currently looks quite cheap.
  5. Its all on Easyjet's website. L'aéroport de Paris Charles-de-Gaulle Tous les vols au départ et à destination de Paris Charles-de-Gaulle sont situés au terminal 2D. Téléphone de l'aéroport: Tel: +33 (0)1 48 62 22 80 ou 12 12 Fax: +33 (0)1 48 62 07 52 ou 58 02 Par la route Paris vers l'aéroport de Roissy Charles de Gaulle: Autoroute A1 (Autoroute du Nord) par la Porte de la Chapelle. Autoroute A3 via Porte de Bagnolet, ensuite par l'autoroute A1, rester sur votre droite. Aéroport de Roissy Charles de Gaulle vers Paris: Autoroute A1 vers Paris, ou via Porte de Bagnolet en bifurquant vers Paris Est. Le parking est situé devant le terminal.
  6. The number to ring is 3400 (0.06 euros per minute) http://www.nievre.gouv.fr/mise-en-place-du-3400-a3075.htm l
  7. You will need to check that the price reduction was not in fact a new contract for 12/24 months. If it is you presumably have some documents showing sale of French property/ Purchase of UK property.
  8. Unless you have only been with SFR for a short period, and are so within the minimum contract period you are making things too complicated. You only need all the things listed if you are trying to get out of a contract , without having to pay the remaining months. If you have been with them for a long time, and haven't lumbered yourself with a new contract by recently upgrading just tell them you want to cancel the contract. You can find all the details here including model letters. https://www.resilier.fr/SFR.php#modele-lettre-resiliation-SFR-internet You can even send the registered letter from your PC, and wiil get a receipt. Don't forget you will have to return all their clobber, and from memory pay an exit fee.
  9. And if you are selling in a few years time Brexit will probably change the rules again. You will be selling under the non-Eu resident rules.
  10. "the office is shambolic and that is the side that would be involved in banking " Not really. Remember until it changed it's name Banque Orange was called Groupama Banque.
  11. Until you sell it to someone you are supposed to keep it insured. If you sell it in pieces you will always own it, as only an official breakers yard can give you the necessary certificate of destruction. Selling vehicles as parts by unregistered breakers can be punished by a fine.
  12. The carte-grise website will give you a good idea of the registration cost, it will certainly be much lower than the VAT to be paid.
  13. This seems to explain all you need to do, no phone calls required. https://www.sky.com/help/diagnostics/sky-viewing-card/sky-viewing-card
  14. Yes double taxation relief would apply. I was tending to assume that unless seriously large sums were involved, it would be relatively easy to avoid UK tax!
  15. I think for next year they are abolishing the rebate for the length of time the shares have been held, then the total rate of tax is a straight 30% of the total gain . It is no longer based on the marginal rate of income tax.
  16. In the UK you can make a gain of roughly £11000 without paying any tax. That's per person, so potentially , depending on who owns the shares that could be £22000 tax free gain. If you split it over a couple of tax years, say next March and April that could be £44000 gain. As you have held the shares for more than 8 years, In France you pay tax on 35% of the gain at your marginal income tax rate. In addition you have the social charges at roughly 15% on the whole gain.

    This tells you what you need to know. https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/F31858
  18. It's all here , and it also confirms the Nantes address. https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/R33870
  19. Looks like Rustyhole has taken fright at leaving a paper trail on this website and done a runner. so I guess we won't be hearing anything more about this case.
  20. As I said the dates are there to give you a reasonable period in which to tie up your finance, at least 30 but more usually 45 days. If you have not notified your inability to raise the money , in writing, within that period, then the contract carries on, either by your raising the money some other way, or by forfeiting the deposit.
  21. The normal legal procedure is that the buyer notifies the Notaire, by registered letter, well before the specified period expires , that the mortgage application has been rejected.The Notaire will want to see at least one, and possibly three different rejections. In the absence of this notification the sale proceeds. Very often details of the amount to be borrowed , monthly payments,maximum rate of interest etc etc are all specified. This is to prevent the purchaser being forced to proceed , by requiring him to take a loan at usurious rates of interest. Are there any of these supplementary terms in your contract? The thing you have to remember is that when you signed the contract you agreed to buy the property. The clause is solely there to protect you in the unfortunate case where you are unable to get a loan on which you were relying to fund the purchase. Hence there is a real possibility that an inflexible vendor could require you to proceed with the sale unless you can really prove that you cannot get the finance.
  22. Spoke too soon, re Mr Du Cann. I see that his obituary is in today's paper.
  23. It was nice to see that Edward Ducann though too ill to appear in court back in 1997 is alive and well and living in Cyprus.
