The BENEFITS of buying NEW BUILD:
While it’s not for everyone, there are some obvious advantages to buying “New Builds” in France.
- Reduced legal fees – from the usual 7% for re-sales to 2.5%
- Some choice of fixtures, fittings & final Layout
- 2 year guarantee on fixtures & fittings
- Energy Efficient in line with EU standards which include greatly improved thermal insulation and lower energy bills & lower maintenance.
- Modern acoustic insulation is very important as many older buildings are noisy.
- 10 year guarantee – on the construction
- Staged payments – in France payments can only be asked for once pre-defined stages are completed and signed off by the architects. There is therefore no question of buyers advancing money to the developer as happens in many countries.
- Finally, and especially if one buys early, one has a range of options. In the case of an apartment block for example one can choose between ground, middle and top ; between east and west, north and south aspect ; there are many choices.
