Sun, beaches, sea, relaxation, quite simply synonyms for the South of France. It is therefore no surprise that residential properties are highly sought after. However, when buying expensive properties such as villas, there are a number of points that should be considered before you decide to buy. Many of these points you will possibly not even have thought about or will have been concealed by a seller. However, they are extremely important if you want to make a good decision when buying a villa in the South of France. CB Consulting Management will deal with all of these “hidden issues” for you.
The postcard view of an online platform by no means guarantees that the surrounding area will be great.
Here, in addition to the obvious information, it is the “hidden information” that is not in the brochure or not mentioned by the seller that matters.
CB Consulting Management will answer these and many more questions for you in advance.
Structure of the villa
After checking the location, you should turn to the property. Here, too, a critical assessment is necessary. Besides the number of rooms, the living space, the size of the property and other obvious points, the general maintenance condition (house, garden and land, pool) needs to be the subject of an initial assessment. Aspects such as the electrical installations or the water and gas supply also need to be in perfect condition, though, in order for the property to be considered to be suitable for purchase.
Besides these basics, there is a range of other factors that should be considered:
If the location, structure and taxes are agreeable, there is the issue of legal certainty. Although the general legal framework in France is very similar to that in Germany, for a successful purchase certain aspects need to be examined closely.
It always needs to be clarified whether the seller is allowed to sell the property in the first place, whether there are mortgages or inheritance disputes or whether there are any rights of way of third parties. The issue of whether basic permission for a structural extension exists should also be clarified. When this last test is passed, your villa in the South of France will give you a lot of pleasure.
