More compulsory surveys for Languedoc property

Rather like the now obsolete HIP pack in the UK, French properties being sold have to have (by law) a raft of compulsory surveys which, since Jan 1st have just grown in number.

As of this year properties being sold with sceptic tanks (Fosse septic in French) now have to have a survey to confirm they are up to scratch.

This survey forms part of the sales contract and any irregularities must be put right at the seller's expense.

There are now 8 compulsory surveys (dependent on the age of the property) including;

Termites
Gas
Electricity
Natural risk assessment (flooding)
Electrical Performance Certificate (DPE in French)
Lead
Asbestos
Sceptic tank

If you are selling or thinking of selling a Languedoc property and would like more info on this subject then email us and we will do our best to help.
