Legal, Inheritance & Tax Advice


The tax regime and legal framework for ownership and inheritance may well be different here than that which you are used to. It is a specialist subject, and can be complex depending on your marital, family and business situation. For this reason, we do not advice on it ourselves, but can point you in the direction of independent third party specialists who are best positioned to represent you. This is particularly advisable if you don’t speak specialist French fluently (including legal and accounting vocabularies). Such a professional is well-positioned to also read, vet and report on legal sales contracts on your behalf prior to you signing them, and can act as a power of attorney should you need to progress the sales documentation remotely. Specifically, one of our contacts has excellent working relationships with all of the local Notaires and can collaborate on the drafting of contracts to meet your specific requirements.
