Skipping off to the UK. in French Finance Posted December 2, 2008 This is going to be tempting for some so needs to be aired I reckon.How much clout I wonder do the French tax and bank organisations have if people skip off back to the UK to avoid debt. I'm thinking along the lines of loans, overdrafts, and tax owed. I did read somewhere that when selling your house here, the notaire has to check on such things? Also, I presume that it's much like the UK where a claim can be made on your house.I hope answers and advice given here will prevent folks getting into even deeper water - not that I'm thinking of going for a paddle myself!
