My children-US citizens -inherited a house from their French grandfather who died. The house has been sold. The notary that concluded the sale doesn't seem to know anything. She can't get their share of the proceeds into a US bank. That's another story!
How are home sales recorded in France? Does some record go to the France government? Are taxes taken out during the sale to cover them?
Any help, advice, or experience with French home sales and taxes is greatly appreciated.
