Good evening all.
After just been given the news by a mortgage company, that we will be ok for a small mortgage to purchase a property in France and the “mortgage in principle”, I can go ahead and book viewings.
It has taken a while to get more to the right moment in time for some thing to fit together.
We are planning a short 8 day holiday, property viewing and getting to know the area better and some general sight seeing, so we are off to Normandy, below Vire, and slightly to the West of Saint-Hilaire, and East almost as far as Gorron.
I have read up on quite a few things to look for / ask, of the immobiliers. Something i would like to understand about the reports that communes file. Some communes run a debt , and although the current taxes are ok…you think that in a short while they will have to charge a lot more to get recover from that debt. Does anybody have experience of this in their own commune ?
Anything else that i should be asking, of an estate agent …anything at all… as we probably haven’t thought of it.
Oh , not that this has any bearing really, we are driving own car , to visit areas and explore the local surroundings
