If you are buying a property in France, you should instruct an independent English-speaking French property lawyer to guide you through the property buying process.

France has some of the strictest forced inheritance rules of any country and these are very different to the inheritance rules in the UK.  The way you structure your French property purchase now could have a big impact on your succession planning later on.

This, together with the unfamiliar legal process and different language, it is important that you instruct a French lawyer who is used to assisting UK clients with property purchases in France.
