How can I sign a document if I don’t understand French?

We are often asked this question and the language issue is naturally a very important one to address. Contracts and agreements must be drafted in French in order to be valid under French law. We work with bilingual Notaires and other experts and can arrange an English translation of any documents relating to the property purchase. We review the contracts in English so that clients are fully aware of their rights and obligations. Our CEO, Susie Hollands, accompanies clients to all official meetings and makes certain they are comfortable with any document they are presented with, every step of the way.
