If you are thinking of buying or selling a property in France, this should be an exciting time for you. However, dealing with French Property Law can be extremely complex, adding unnecessary stress to your situation.

At Ashtons Legal, our dedicated team of French property solicitors will help you work through the legal issues and contracts. We will not only hold your hand through the whole legal process but will also liaise with Notaires, estate agents and other relevant contacts on your behalf. We are also able to recommend and refer you to estate agents based throughout France whom we have been working with over the years to establish trusted and reliable working relationships.

We have in-depth knowledge of French inheritance law and tax, as well as the subsequent implications on your UK estate. We also understand and acknowledge family issues and the English implications of French property ownership.

Our clients benefit from reliable, efficient, expert advice and we provide a service aimed at taking the stress out of your situation.
