  1. Hi Debra,

    Yes, thats what we are worried about.  We have specifically made the UK wills, leaving each other our properties in the UK.  We do not want the children to have inheritance rights to these properties. If French law takes precedence over the UK properties, I'm not sure how we can get round the problem.

    Thanks

  2. Hi

    Is there anyone who can help with this?  Perhaps recommend a firm of solicitors? We will be living in France, but we will still have income and properties in the UK.  I know a french property would come under inheritance law and any children would inherit, but would children automatically have rights on the UK properties against the wishes stated in the UK wills. We would be resident in France , but would we still be domiciled in the UK?

    I know this is complicated and we really need to get some professional advice, so any help and recommendations would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks

  3. Hi

    I'm not asking about inheritance tax, I wondered if our UK wills would stand and our wishes would be followed regarding our property in the UK. We will be living in France but will have property in the UK.

    Thanks

  4. Hi

    This is a further question relating to my previous post "Buying a House - Legal Issues".

    Can anyone tell me , does property owned in the UK come under French Inheritance Law.  We both have property and land in our own names in the UK, which we have left to each other in UK wills.  Will this property be subject to French Inheritance Law after we move permanently to France?

    Any information will be most welcome.

    Thanks

  5. Hi

    Thanks for your comments.

    We have wills in the UK and thought we would make out wills in France to cover the french property.  I know that my family will insist that Jim continues to live in the house if he wishes, but I wanted to leave the house to him if I die first.  Can this not be done under any circumstances?

    Thanks

  6. Hi

    I am buying a house in France for myself and my partner and we intend to live there permanently. I have no children, my partner has 3.  The house will be in my name only.

    Can anyone tell me the legal implications of this.  We would probably have a bank account each to receive income from the UK and then transfer funds into a joint bank account, would this be wise regarding inheritance, tax etc?  I'm not sure where to start.  We didn't think too much of it, but after reading a lot of threads on the forum I'm beginning to think we need to sort everything out as much as we can before we get to France, or perhaps its better to speak to the Notaire when we arrive.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

  7. Thanks,

    I can't get onto the free website and the Wanadoo website has been checking my number for the last 20 minutes, I've tried it three times and no joy[8-)]

    I'll try again later.

  8. Hi Everyone,

    We are buying a house in Champniers et Reilhac (Limousin/Dordogne Border) and wondered if anyone lived near or knew the area and could tell me if ADSL is available?

    I tried this site    http://www.adsl-facile.com/    , the test results showed a big NO for all but TELE2, which gave me a YES with these results:

    Dégroupé :     Option(s) :
    ADSL jusqu'à 20 Mega
    Débit réel :  à 14,85 €/mois      Promotions  7,50 € 3 mois
      Téléphone illimité  10 €/mois
      Modem éthernet  2,50 €/mois
      Modem USB  2,50 €/mois
      Sans présélection  5,10 €/mois
     
    Non dégroupé :     Option(s) :

    Does this mean that I can have ADSL, or am I just living in hope!!!

    Thanks

  9. Hi

    I have just signed the compromis and sent it back to the Notaire ( I am in the UK ).  Can anyone tell me when my 7 days start?

     

    Thanks

  10. I suppose what it comes down to is convenience.

    If the tunnel costs more, it doesn't really matter.  It is a one-off , one way journey( I hope).

    I certainly wouldn't want to leave the dogs for several hours, so I suppose its the Dover - Calais ferry or the tunnel. It looks to me like the tunnel is the less hassle route. (Or have I got that wrong?)

    Alcazar's route looks good, so we will probably take that.

    Thanks again

    Di

  11. Hi Alcazar,

    Wow, thats such a coincidence!  We are just south of St Mathieu,  just outside Champniers et Reilhac.  We are just about to post the compromis back to the notaire and have been given a guide date of 30th September.

    It seems a long way off and I know there is a long way to go before we sign the Acte de Vente, but we are hoping everything goes smoothly and we can't help starting to plan things.

    I just hope we are not jumping the gun!!

  12. Thanks to everyone for their replies.

    We will be (hopefully) coming over at the end of the year to live in a small hamlet just south of Rochechouart (Limousin), we are actually just over the border into the Dordogne.

    We really want the route with the least hassle!!  We will have a very large trailer ( are there any restrictions on size of trailer with the tunnel?)two dogs and no doubt a few frazzled nerves :)  How often do trains run in the tunnel?

    I want the journey to be as relaxed as possible! (I can hear you all laughing [:D])

    Thanks again

  13. Hi everyone,

    We will be travelling from Manchester to Limoges with a large trailer and 2 dogs!!

    I would be grateful for suggestions as to the best way to do this.  I've had a look at ferries and the tunnel , there seems to be so many options and I'm still none the wiser.

    I doesn't necessarily have to be the fastest, shortest route, we won't be on a tight schedule.

    Thanks
