What is the Acte de Vente in France?

You’ve signed the Compromis de Vente, you’ve waited around three months and now you’re going to complete the Acte de Vente the last part of the buying process. All parties meet in the Notaires office. The Notaire will read through the Acte de Vente adding in the results of his searches made during the delay after the compromise and the names of previous owners the paper trail that makes buying property in France so safe.

Key Takeaways:

  • You will need to supply an “Attestation d’ Origine des Fonds” to comply with French anti money laundering laws and this can be obtained from your bank or currency provider (it doesn’t matter which country they ‘re based in – they will all be able to do this).
  • The Notaire will read through the Acte de Vente adding in the results of his searches made during the delay after the compromis and the names of previous owners – the paper trail that makes buying property in France so safe.
  • he notaire will give an “Attestation” to the buyer and seller. For the seller it allows them to cancel their insurances etc. and for the buyer it is proof of ownership while the Notaire registers the transfer with the land registry.

“The proud new owner can now “live the dream” and it really is time for those champagne corks to pop.”
