a real estate property in France

Under French law a valid contract exists when the buyer and seller enter into an agreement (in this case to sell a real estate property) and agree on a price. A non-professional buyer can cancel this preliminary contract, within 7 days, by notification by registered letter with an acknowledgment of receipt. The preliminary contract is the first step in the process of buying a house or an apartment in France. This is a binding contract which confirms the agreement between buyer and seller. Often the contract includes conditions precedent such as the requirement for financing by the buyer. If the conditions are not met then the contract is void.

The final sales contract is the second and last step in becoming a property owner in France. This contract, which must be prepared by a Notary, transfers ownerships after the conditions precedent have been met. Subsequently, the Notary will send a copy to the Land Registry which will ensure its enforceability against third parties. It usually takes about three months between the date of the preliminary contract and the final property closing. During this period various documents need to be produced to secure the sale. In addition, this period allows the buyer time to obtain a loan. The Land Registry and the requirement for a Notary, a member of the legal profession, ensures your rights to the property which, in France, are exclusive, perpetual and absolute.
