I am looking to buy a farm in France, the catch being the house is in a dilapidated state and needs to be renovated before anyone can live in it.
Experience with the builders in UK has been horrendous to be polite, scammy bunch trying to overcharge and cutting corners. So I have had to work from home and keep an eye on the work being done, when I got my kitchen and bathroom refurnished.
Are the builders in France any better ? Can I rest assured that they will do the work properly after we have agreed on what needs to be done and the price and timelines ? Or would I need to be standing behind their backs and checking everything they do.
