How do non-EU residents buy a property in France?

Finding a property in France if you’re not from the EU can be slightly cumbersome but is achievable. You’ll need a good agent and likely a good property finder as well. They can help you with any time constraints in looking for a property. It is also important that you seek legal consultation. You will need to know what the inheritance laws are for your property as well as any tax laws. The right tax law firm can help you establish what you need to know for property taxes in France as well as your home country.

Key Takeaways:

  • While owning property in France or any foreign country can be challenging, it’s certainly achievable.
  • Your visa status will impact your buying process, but is no more difficult than it is for a non-National living in the EU.
  • Spend the time and effort to find a good agent you can work with.

“In France, for example, you must always use a notaire to buy or sell a property.”
