Most of the main cities in France will have agents of this type who will be able to advise you on this sort of procedure.
Firstly, you will need to provide personal information, such as nationality, marital status and current place of residence in France or abroad. Depending on your answers to these questions, you will need to provide additional administrative details for your file. The legal framework for buying a property as a foreigner can vary in France. Certain requirements may be needed in cities which are popular with international buyers. Real estate agents will be able to provide you with all the necessary details to help you finalise the legal proceedings.
