Advantages of buying a new home in France
There are several advantages of buying a new build home in France:
Reduced notary fees: In France the notaire’s fees are much lower when buying a brand new home. New-build home owners pay only 2-3% in ’frais de notaire’ against the usual 7-8%.
Property tax exemption: New buildings used as the main home are exempt from property tax (taxe foncière) for the first two years after construction. To benefit from the exemption, a special tax form must be filed with the local tax authorities within 90 days of completion of the property.
Legal protection: When you buy a new build home in France you are covered by the solid French consumer protection law and an obligatory 10-year building warranty, which protects you in the event of building defects.
Little maintenance: With everything brand new and fit for purpose you benefit from the convenience of not having to spend money on repairs and maintenance in the first many years.
Personal touch: Depending on the build stage, you have the possibility to choose the materials, colours and even sometimes the room divisions for your new home.
High building standards: New build homes must comply with strict French building regulations including high security and energy saving standards as well as accessibility and insulation requirements.
