Why do they say to the buyer Caveat Emptor in a French real estate transaction?

English speaking French Agent

In French real estate the buyer essentially buys a property in ‘as is where is’ condition and has little if no guarantee by the owner. This is why it is said to the buyer Caveat Emptor which in English means Buyer Beware.

So make sure you have a knowledgeable real estate agent and notary working for you to advise you on all the checking you need to do. This is to make sure you are only taking risks that are acceptable to you.
