Helllo, Can you give me advice on a question of signing over

This answer was rated:

Helllo
JA: Hi. How can I help?
Customer: Can you give me advice on a question of signing over a house ?
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I live in London, but this concerns a matter in France.
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: The house has been signed over. The notaire ( solicitor ) in France had not been informed about a leak by the water meter in the ground. The paperwork was signed on 28th July 2022.Nothing was said to my sister by anyone about this leak - My sisters House Insurance was cancelled prior to speaking with her Estate Agent. My sister heard about this leak on Monday 01st August 2022 from her estate agent in France. The new owner of the property said she wanted to claim off my sisters house insurance, but this was already cancelled.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: That seems to be it.

Dear client, have you already signed the assignment of ownership papers? These types of situations are very common that do not disclose the full damages of the property. If the transfer has already taken place, unfortunately this problem now belongs to the new owner. The most advisable thing to do is to hire a new owner.

Hello NinaWhat are Assignment Papers ?Who should take out the new insurance ?Wayne

Dear client, as I understand it, the house has been signed over to a new owner, hasn't it, and the former owner was your sister?

If the cession is already concluded, now the responsibility for the house is that of the new owner, who is the one who should take out a new insurance policy.

I understand dear client, unfortunately it is up to the new owner to resolve this matter because it is not your sister's fault that she was not notified in time of the damage to the property.
