If you're thinking of buying or renting a second home, or moving to France for good, this book is for you. Clive Kristen has extensive experience of buying and renting property in France and a detailed knowledge of the often-confusing French legal system. He talks the reader through the entire labyrinthine process, from finding that dream property in the Dordogne/Languedoc/Brittany (delete as applicable) to obtaining a loan or mortgage. He warns you what to look out for in the small print. He examines the relative merits of buying and renting, the headaches often associated with building or buying a property still under construction, how to set up a business and rent out your newly acquired gite, and the process of settling into a new and unfamiliar culture. There is useful background on the French way of life and French society (healthcare, finance, education, transport, utilities and so on) and interesting nuggets of incidental information (did you know, for example, that contrary to popular opinion, the majority of Brits opt for the English Channel or Atlantic coast rather than Provence?). First published in 1993, this new edition has been completely revised and updated, and comes complete with samples of the latest forms and documents, plus new chapters on the Internet and the euro and a list of relevant websites.
