Ask a French Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello I have inherited a property in France in the Dordogne along with my brother and sister which we are now trying to sell for a reduced price of euros 180,000. The agents fees are euros 15,000. The agent has told me the law in France is that you don't need a notaire for selling properties and this is covered by his fee and he does the paperwork. Please could you tell me if this is correct. My brother has now told me that his daughter wishes to purchase the property as an investment subject to getting a commericial mortgage and a full structural survey done and he does not want to go through the agent. Would we need to obtain a notaire in this situation and would you know the approximate cost? Do you also know what is the French law in respect of buying or selling to other family members. Many thanks for your advice
