Notary of France Fees Going Down May 2016


French notaries are not happy.

French notaries are not happy since a new law that comes into effect in early May 2016 will see the amount of fees French notaries gain during a real estate transaction will go down by 2.5 percent and perhaps even by as much as 10 percent of what they used to earn before the new law.

Note: According to the French Notary’s website 80 percent of the money you pay to a notary during a real estate transaction are taxes that go directly to the French government.

To find out how much you will pay in notary fees for your next real estate transaction ask you notary for a quote ahead of time.

This new law will be revised in 2018.
