Welcome to the France Buying Guide!

The France Buying Guide is a free of charge resource service to help those looking to purchase property in or emigrate to France. Part of the Overseas Guides Company, the France Buying Guide was set up to help guide Brits in successfully buying a property in France – covering the multitude of steps taken on the way, including the property buying process, French law, currency, tax and financial matters, local French customs and getting to grips with the language. We aim to help you on every step of your journey, to ensure you can effectively build a life for yourself in France!

Our free of charge guides, blogs and newsletters are written by experienced and knowledgeable writers based in both the UK and France – offering you the most in-depth information available on the topics most relevant to you. We share the experiences and real-life stories of expats who have been through the process themselves, to provide you with helpful hints and tips and highlight the main pitfalls, so you don’t fall into them!

Our Resource Centre has helpful experts on the other end of the telephone, always ready to provide you with guidance on your destination and to connect you with professional services in that country.
