French Property and Inheritance Law by Henry Dyson

Book Description

The growing trend for purchasing property in France, either as a main or second home, has led to a corresponding need for a book which explains the French conveyancing system for lawyers trained in other legal systems. French Property and Inheritance Law offers practical guidance to lawyers and other professionals advising clients on property transactions and related matters in France including: buying, selling, and mortgaging land; the ownership of flats and leases; and the establishment of companies to own land as a means of avoiding French inheritance rules and to mitigate French inheritance tax. It unravels the mysteries of many features of the French system such as the marriage regime, the PACS, and sales en viager which can often be advantageous to non-French clients. The book also covers all aspects of French inheritance law, including the rules of intestacy, the making of wills, and the inheritance rights of the surviving spouse and the rights of other members of the family. The author offers advice on how beneficiaries can avoid personal liability for the debts of a deceased and provides practical guidance on the administration of estates. A glossary and relevant legal precedents are also included. The author also writes regular updates on new key developments in French property law - please see the publication Solicitors' Journal for details of his articles on the subject.

THE MYSTERIES OF FRENCH LAND LAW

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

We had just finished re-reading Peter Mayle’s ‘A Year in Provence’ when this remarkable book landed on our doorstep and we began to read it in more detail with some enthusiasm. Like many of our colleagues, knowledge of the principles and practice of French property and inheritance law has been limited to excursions across the Channel and my pupil master explaining the intricacies of buying an old farm in Normandy.

Henry Dyson has produced a most readable book, which will appeal to a market that is continually expanding as more and more Britons buy property abroad. Now, we have all seen the horror stories on the television so is it really as bad?

The answer is, probably, no! The problem with French property law is the way in which they do things and Dyson has a splendid way of setting out French methods. To highlight...
