What is a French Co Property? What expenses can be mine?

english speaking french real estate agents

In France, a condominium complex or strata complex which is a residence with multiple owners who own an individual residence and a share in the common property are called ‘co-properties’.

If you are planning on buying into a ‘French co-propertie’ you will want to note several items that can impact the cost of the monthly expenses you will have to pay to support the common ownership you are investing in:

Note: these expenses are in addition to your own personal property expenses

Gas, electricity, insurance, water, maintenance expenses of the common property

Personnel expenses like gardeners and security personnel

The future cost of work such as energy efficiency upgrades

Upgrades to older systems such as elevators, secure entry gates and swimming pools

Make sure you get your real estate agent and the current French property owner and current French property management company to supply you with all the necessary documents so you know the cost of these items and other items that will be your responsibility once you are the owner. As always it is best to plan ahead.
