There are quite a few considerations if you are planning to buy your dream French property - finding properties for sale in France is only the start of the adventure. The considerations include both legal and tax issues, and personal issues e.g. will you cope with being away from your family, adjusting to the language. Many of these potential hurdles are considered in the Living in France section of this site, and in a separate article about France mortgages in our living in France section.
You need not be deterred by the actual process of buying your French dream home. It is no longer the case that an accidental nod of the head and you are in a binding agreement to purchase, and the process is reasonably straightforward, if expensive (estate agent fees and legal costs typically amount to 15% of the purchase cost). But you will need legal advice if you are planning to move to France or hold significant assets in France, especially because of the complicated inheritance laws. You will also need to understand the tax position of both earning income from your French home, and the capital gains tax implications when you come to sell the property.
Many notaires and estate agents speak English, but of course you will not want to sign a legal document in French if you do not understand it!
