How much is the increase in French notary fees?

French real estate just went up in price without the price changing.

As of the 1st of March 2014, in the majority of French departments, the legal fees paid by the buyer of a French property increase approximately 1 percent.

This one percent increase is a result of the increase in French government transfer duties and the increase in the French VAT called TVA.
