French English lawyers

English French lawyers are sometimes used in addition to a Notaire by people buying property in France.

If you simply want the French contracts to be checked over and a confirmation as to whether the paperwork is legally sound, you can generally choose a simple, affordable, "contract-checking" service. Solicitor representation can also be available, to ensure that you are helped every step of the way.

When choosing an English speaking lawyer in France it is important to check the following;

Do ensure that she/he:

1. Is qualified to practise French law (i.e. a French Avocat);
2. Is registered as such in France (this is compulsory for all French lawyers);
3. Holds Professional Indemnity Insurance specifically covering advice on French Law.
4. Can officially act for you as "French solicitor" when corresponding with French notaries, banks, etc.

English French lawyers should be regulated by the French and UK Law Societies and comply with their rules and regulations. With this in mind they should have full professional indemnity insurance.

French lawyers that speak English can offer services, such as;

Conveyancing assistance

Commercial property

Buy-to-let / leasebacks

Off-plan purchasing

Landlord & tenant

Buying through a company

French mortgage contract review

Inheritance law advice

Wills drafting
