Buy new Houses and apartments for sale
If you found a new project with the ideal apartment for sale, we will block this on your name and send you the bank details for a first reservation payment. You pay in general 5% of the buying price within seven days. After reception, the developer will send you the preliminary sales contract. After this contract is signed by both parties and returned to your address (this process takes normally 10-15 working days); you still have 8-days withdrawal period for a property in France. The 5% will be returned immediately, but you had the reservation on the property for at least 3 weeks. A good strategy if you are planning to visit the project but don’t want to take the risk to wait too long!

Buying process for real estate in France

The entire procedure is very buyer-friendly and protects buyers to a maximum. The procedure is a bit slow, but very secured for the buyer. That’s why the buyer should first sign the contract to start the procedure. The buyer has then plenty of time to think about it and to get his financing settled.

8 days withdraw
This period starts from the day you receive your copy of the reservation contract signed by both parties by registered mail – you will receive the contract by courier services like DHL or UPS. Within 8 days you can still withdraw the purchase without any reason given.

30 days withdraw
On the 9th day, a new period starts; the 30-working days (about 45 days) period to obtain a loan starts. In case you get a loan refusal, you can then withdraw from the purchase without any financial punishment or costs.
