How much are closing costs when you buy French real estate

Cliffs of Bonifacio Corsica

Generally speaking when you purchase a residential property in France you pay the purchase price of the property plus around 7 to 8 percent in addition extra in Notary fees.

If you require financing for the property your fees will be higher than when you buy without financing.

If you require the notary to do negotiation for you your fees will be higher.

If you are buying a new property your fees are considerably less than 7 percent.

To get up to date and specific guidance call a French notary or contact us to put you in touch with an active  English speaking French notary or English speaking real estate agent in your area of choice in France.
