Will the buying process change?
Unlikely. A British person buying a property in France has to follow the same process and procedures as the French and as non-EU residents and so it is unlikely that the actual process of buying will change. If it does then it would change for everyone so being inside or outside the EU shouldn’t have an effect.
“I cannot imagine that the buying process will become much more difficult for UK buyers in the future. Non-EU resident make up around 30% of our clients at present anyway and the process for them is very straightforward,” says Tim Swannie, Director of Home Hunts.
