Initial consultation can be done on a video meeting, through WhatsApp or in our offices. 

During this first meeting we will clearly define your project, better understand your expectations and establish a detailed summary of the specifics, including budget of course.

We will also give you clear insights about the real estate market here, the process of buying a house and, of course, we will explain who we are, what we do and how we can help you!

Once the project is clearly defined, we officialize the beginning of our collaboration with an exclusive property search contract, valid for a minimum of 3 months.

We will make a first selection of properties by activating our networks (agencies, notaries, contractors, privates, etc.) and we will send you a table with all the properties.

You will then shortlist one or more properties from those we suggest, and we proceed to the pre-visits of the selected listings and sends you complete reports with our own pictures and videos. We can also do direct online video visits.

As the seller does not appoint us, we are totally objective. Our purpose is to choose, among the properties for sale on the French Riviera, only the ones perfectly corresponding to your criteria.

If you plan to visit in person, we can arrange, not just all the viewings, but also the hotel bookings, transfers and any other services to make your inspection trip more enjoyable.

Once you have made your choice and decided to purchase one of the proposed properties, the first thing to be done is to evaluate if the chosen property really meets your expectations from every point of view.

We will then run our own estimation of the priory to check if the price is correct.

From there onwards, if necessary, we will negotiate with the seller to ensure we obtain the best possible price.

From the offer to the pre-contract, it takes about two to three weeks and once you have signed the contract you still have a 10 days cooling-off period to walk away the acquisition process if necessary. 

This leaves us enough time to check all administrative and legal aspects related to the house and condominium, if applies, and also have the house inspected by a contractor, if relevant.

We continue to give assistance throughout the purchasing process, until final signature, maintaining regular communication between you, the vendor and other interested parties (surveyors, solicitors), and translating documents if necessary.

We will also help you obtaining an insurance company for your house, opening a bank account, transferring utilities contracts and using a removal company if necessary.

According to the law governing the real estate profession, FRH only collects its fees when the deal is finalized once our assignment is fulfilled.

If the purchase of your property on the French Riviera is linked to the sale of your current property, FRH can also assist you in the sale of your property, directly or through one of our partners, depending on the location of the property you sell.

Initial consultation can be done on a video meeting, through WhatsApp or in our offices. 

During this first meeting we will clearly define your project and establish a detailed summary of the specifics, including budget of course. 

We will also give you clear insights about the real rental market here, its specificities regarding expat tenants, the process of renting a house and, of course, we will explain our different service plans (Standard, Premium, VIP) and how we can help you. 

The next step will be to gather your personal and financial information to see what the better option would be to guarantee your rent and assess the overall project feasibility.

Once the project is clearly defined, the service plan selected, we officialize the beginning of our collaboration with an exclusive property search contract, valid for a minimum of 2 months.

We will make a first selection of properties from our search through agencies and privates and we will send you a table with all the properties. 

You will then shortlist one or more properties from those we suggest, and we proceed to the pre-visits or direct viewings of the selected listings and sends you complete reports with our own pictures and videos. We can also do direct online video visits.

Once you have finalized your choice, we will then assist you through the renting process. 

We will check that the lease is correct and respects French regulation – we can translate it for you if necessary – and we will be at your side for the inventory check. 

We will make sure that you are renting in the best and safest conditions.

Once the lease is signed, we will also help you obtaining an insurance company for your house, opening a bank account, transferring utilities contracts and using a removal company if necessary.

One week after lease signature, we will inspect the apartment with you to check if there is anything that you would have noticed that doesn’t work and should be added to the inventory or repaired.
