Help and advice needed

Hi I am writing on behalf of my parents who own a house neat Nimes. They are thinking about selling the house and although my mum speaks fluent French, it’s all a little overwhelming negotiating selling the house/contents/conversion of currency once the sale has taken place.
I was wondering and hoping that there might be someone in the area who might deal with something like this - English speaking but knowledgeable and able to help deal with all the legal and financial aspects of property sale?

A notaire who can explain things in English when necessary is probably the most useful.


Or use an English speaking agent like Leggetts or Greenacres.

@Helen_Brits I second the Notaire suggestion… especially as your parents will be relying on someone to handle their finances as well as legal matters.

Not sure I can name an immobilier I would trust (except @Mat_Davies of course)

perhaps the notaire who handled the original purchase would be a good starting point?
Repatriating the funds will be less troublesome using someone like TorFX who are well used to handling such transactions

Unfortunately a little far away from my patch (about 6 hours!) - but I have very fond memories of Nîmes - it is stunning and well worth a visit.

I seriously reckon a Notaire might well be best in this particular situation…
I mentioned you, simply as the only immobilier I would trust …
I’ve had dealings with most of the others one way or another and can’t think of anyone of 'em I’d hand this sort of task to … but maybe I’ve missed a little gem… it’s always possible.

Thank you so much guys - the suggestion about the money was especially helpful, as my dad was saying how they’d end up with Euros, of course, and its rough to lose so much in conversion
