What is a bureau d’urbanisme in France?

When you are interested in buying a French property it is a wise decision to visit the local bureau d’urbanisme for the property you are intereted in.

The bureau d’urbanisme is where you will find details of the town planning concerning the French property.

For example, you can ask if the road beside your new property will be widened, or if a new building is going to be build in the field that is between your new apartment and the sea, therefore blocking your view in the future.

Important: make sure you visit the bureau d’urbanisme before you make any future buying decisions so you can protect your investment
