In France, fees are usually paid by the buyer (depending on the clause in the Mandat de Vente) on completion of the purchase. The buyer also pays for the Notaire’s fees (please ask me to obtain a quote for you).
Suzanne in France charges fees based on the purchase price of your property, using on a sliding scale as shown below.
How fees are calculated
The following example is based on a sale price of €75,000
|On the part less than or equal to €30,000||10%||€30,000 x 10% = €3,000|
|On the part between €30,001 and €50,000||8%||€20,000 x 8% = €1,600|
|On the part between €50,001 and €100,000||7%||€25,000 x 7% = €1,750|
|On the part greater than €100,000||6%||n/a|
|TOTAL = €6,350|
