If you are acting for the executors of an estate and need to realise French assets, we can liaise with French authorities and give you the best advice on the state administration process in France.
If one of the assets you are dealing with is a French property, you need to be aware of the legal processes involved in the transfer of property and transfer of ownership in France within French property law. We can help your client save time and avoid paying substantial legal costs and various taxes by putting the consent order in France into effect.
If you are preparing wills for clients who have assets in France, it is important to ask whether the client should have both an English and French will or if they have adopted a matrimonial regime which will dictate how their assets are dealt with on death. We can help you consider the rules of French inheritance when advising clients on estate planning.
If you fall within any of the above cases, please contact French Law Matters now to discuss.
