  1. Two years later!!  Did you find anyone?  Are you still in Metz, as we are considering moving there.  If so, how have you found it?

    Thanks

  2. I am totally shocked at the prices in French shops, DIY in particular.  I am not even taking into consideration the fall in Sterling against the Euro.  What is the secret of getting materials at a reasonable price, am I missing something here?  I am considering asking the in-laws to bring items with them from the UK or travelling over the border to Germany.  How do the French afford to shop in Bricorama etc?

    Thanks

  5. Hi

    Is anyone impartial?  I have the removal company recommending a company, the mortgage broker, magazine articles.  Of course I will shop around and register with a few and see who gives me the best deal.

    Thanks

  6. Hi

    I have now received the CdV in the post(normal post) from the Notaire.  I have to send it back normal post and he will send me the final version with both parties signatures by registered post.  I then have my seven days to withdraw I transferred the deposit last week from my German bank account.  For the final payment, I have my capital in sterling so I am using a FX company recommended by my mortgage broker to send the remaining monies to the notaire.   We are going over to Beaune for the final signing over of the house, as the house will be sold as seen.

    Cheers

  7. Hi

    Is it advisable to have personal liability insurance in France as it is in Germany.  The reason being, if you break something for example in another person's house , they will claim on your insurance.   Can anyone advise?

    Thanks

  8. Hi

    Does anyone know of a website such as moneysupermarket.com that exists in France?  I have searched via google and not really found sites that analyse the best deals on; credit cards, savings accounts etc.

    thanks

  11. Hi

    I have just had an offer for a house accepted in France and I now have to sign the compromis du vente.  I have two options: go in person(could be expensive) or have the notaire sign on my behalf(not sure of costs).  I have two questions, has anyone taken the latter option themselves and were you able to transfer the money by bank for the deposit?

    Many thanks

  12.  Finally, we have found somewhere we would like to move to in France.  After many months searching especially in the SW, we have now decided it's Beaune for us.  We have been over  to look at houses and will be going again at the month's end.  Is there anyone on the forum living in and around Beaune and can give me an idea what it's like to live there? Is there any news on the Ryanair flights from Dijon to London?

    Many thanks

    Dale

  13.    Hi
