jan.c Posted January 13, 2010 Share Posted January 13, 2010 We have found a UK buyer for our French holiday home by private advertising. Not having the benefit of an Agent in France, and neither party French speaking, we are a bit stuck as how to proceed.Should we ask the local immoblier to handle the sale for us - if so what are the likely costs bearing in mind we already have a buyer in place?If we contact a Notaire, will they advise us on what documents we need or would it be better to employ someone to gather the required documents for us? (what is the required documentation!?)We bought the house 9 years ago, the French dream didn't work for us and we've only been there a dozen times. I know we will owe some CGT, and Notaire costs, but not sure how to take the first steps towards getting the sale moving. Both the buyer and ourselves are UK based and if possible only want to travel to France for the completion of the sale. It's been so long since we bought the property, I can't remember the process, [8-)]ANY advice would be most welcome, thanks [:)]Janet Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
