New Build Properties in France

A real alternative to renovation


Renovation costs in France can rapidly exceed one’s budget as far as materials and project supervision is concerned.

In some instances the renovation project will require planning permission and the administration involved will also add in time and costs to the original budget.

New build properties in France on the other hand are priced more or less “ready to move into” which is a substantial benefit to the purchaser who knows from the outset the overall cost of the purchase. New property in France is the first choice of the French buyers themselves and off plan properties in France are snapped up quickly.

This is not surprising given the many financial and lifestyle benefits you enjoy when buying new build property in France:


- 5% refundable deposit

When purchasing an off plan France property, French law clearly states that the deposit required for the reservation of the property cannot exceed 5% of the purchase price. This is an attractive benefit which reduces the purchaser’s initial outlay. In the case of other property transactions the deposit required is 10%.


- Secure and simple buying procedure

Buying off plan properties in France is a straightforward and safe process. All new build properties are subject to French government regulated contracts designed to protect the interests of the purchaser.


- Low legal costs (2.5% – 3%)

Legal fees on new build properties in France are low and amount on average to only 2.5% – 3% of the purchase price. This compares very competitively against 6% to 8% for an old property. The legal fees or Frais de Notaire include the French Notary’s fees and the Deed documents registration fees.


- Stage payments

Other financial advantages in buying a new property in France include stage payments which are made as construction progresses.


- Excellent letting and resale potential

Off plan properties in France are built on residential developments which are often gated and set in landscaped maintained grounds. This provides a secure, organised environment which is attractive to holiday letting agencies. In addition French off plan developments are often located close to all amenities, which is an important requirement from a holiday point of view. When time comes to resell these key features ensure good resale potential and sustained capital growth.


- French inheritance law and ownership

French inheritance law differs from the English system. Please take advice on these matters as early as possible in the buying process. This will enable you to choose the best way to own your French property (joint ownership, sole name, company, etc) prior to completion (signing of the Deed of sale). We are able to recommend solicitors who specialise in French conveyancing.


- French lifestyle at the turn of a key

As new build properties require little or no maintenance you are able to enjoy your place in France and French lifestyle from the moment you arrive. At the end of your stay you can lock up and leave your new home with full peace of mind and looking forward to your next visit.

The French property market still remains extremely popular with buyers from the UK and Ireland. With easy connections to highly sought after property locations, its endearing popularity and its close proximity to the rest of Europe, France offers French property buyers an undisputed quality of life as well as a stable economy in which to invest.


Deciding on where to buy a property in France is no easy task. Each region is different.

From picturesque Picardy and Normandy to the sun-drenched Côte d’Azur our France property guide features many of the most desirable locations in France.

The most popular regions for new build property buyers include the South of France (Côte d’Azur, Languedoc and Provence), the Loire Valley, south-west France (Aquitaine and Charentes), Brittany and Normandy, which are particularly popular with UK buyers.

Winter holiday homes in the French Alps are also very popular, particularly in fashionable ski resorts such as Chamonix and Samoens.

Buying a French property in one of the French Alps ski resorts is a dual season investment with good letting potential in both winter and summer months.
