  1. Have look at the notaires websites - most of them are immos as well. Can't remember how to get ther, but search for notaires+France, and you should eventually be able to select by department. I'm sure someone else will post the link! Peter
  2. I posted this as a reply to another thread and it seems to have generated some interest: We used a French solicitor based in Plymouth who checked everything out with the immo and the notaire. She found one or two issues and was able to negotiate a substantial reduction in the price - more than saving her fee. You don't necessarily have to live in the West Country, as it can all be done by phone/post. Another benefit is that you get a free interpreter! All the documents come to you translated into English. You wouldn't buy a house in the UK without a solicitor, would you? We also paid a maitre d'oeuvre to check out properties that we were keen on to make sure that there were no hidden problems with the condition of the building[s]. Any potential purchasers needing the solicitor's details please pm me. Anyone wanting help in the SE of 37 or N of 36 or S of 41 [70km radius of Loches], also pm and I'll see what I can do. I can also recommend a good remover - pm for details. Bonne courage, Peter
  3. In my humble opinion it's worth using a lawyer in the UK to check everything out with the immo and the notaire. We used a French solicitor based in Plymouth who discovered one or two things that weren't quite as they should be, and she got the purchase price reduced, thereby more than earning her fee. We also had potential purchases checked out by a maitre d'oeuvres to make sure there were no hidden problems with the structure. You wouldn't by a house in the UK without a solicitor, so why do so in France? If any potential purchasers want the solicitor's details, please pm me.   Peter
  4. Xantia or 406 with the HDI 1.9 engine, or cheaper, 405 1.9 turbo diesel My 406 is cheaper to service at a main dealer here than in UK, despite 19.5% TVA Peter
  5. What's the wonder drug called?  pm if you prefer Peter
  6. I used Agence Eaton [0297 408020] English Speaking. They fixed me up with 'April', and I have had no problems at all. Peter
