House Purchase in South-West France

If you are house hunting in the Dordogne (24), Lot (46) or Lot-et-Garonne (47), I can link you to reputable estate agents who can clearly explain the French purchasing process to you, listen to your brief, interpret the legal documentation and help you make your decision.

I can help you with:

  • Introducing you to a local, experienced estate agent who speaks your language
  • Putting you in touch with a local registered architect or surveyor
  • Obtaining quotes for a potential renovation project with builders and architects
  • Providing advice and information about the local area such as schools, shops and doctors.
  • Obtaining a French mortgage
  • Organising the move to your new home – sourcing removal company quotes and storage requirements
  • Insuring your home and contents
  • Transferring utility bills into your name, reading meters or upgrading the power
  • Providing monthly house checks while you are away (see previous page ‘House Checks’)
