The legal process when buying a property in France is different to that of the UK and the French system is very protective of the buyer - a Notaire is always involved - they are employed by the government to ensure a sale is above board and to collect various taxes owing. They can advise you on all aspects of a purchase but may not speak English so selecting a bilingual lawyer can prove invaluable.
