You will need to get your 1st tax return form from your nearest tax office (hotel des impots) This will be for income in 2014 so for you only Oct,Nov,Dec.  This form will have to be submitted towards the end of May and the tax office will tell you exactly. If your affairs are at all complex it is well worth paying for professional help the 1st time.

Philealing, you mean Taxe Foncieres when pro rata is sorted out by the Notaire.

Taxe Hab is paid by the person in residence on Jan 1st and no pro rata.

Both taxes are payable in the final quarter of the year, for the period 1 Jan to 31 Dec of the same calendar year. The exact deadlines vary by dept and also depending on if it's a holiday home or a pernament home, holiday home owners normally get theirs a month earlier than full time residents.

You need to fill in and submit your first income declaration this month or early next, for your income from Oct to Dec 2014,  and if you're entitled to any reduction on your taxe d'habitation based on your income/age,  this will be applied automatically.

Both of ours come towards the end of the year. Can't remember exactly but something like October/November time. if you competed in October I would have thought your notarie would have asked you to refund the previous owner's tax d'habitation for the last three months of the year. Certainly that's what happened in our case.

You should get your copy of the  'deeds' (acte de vente) anytime after 6 months - nothing in France is quick.   They will arrive in due course, but if you need them for anything special, as the previous poster said, you can get a copy more quickly by request  from the notaire  .

taxe d'habitation and fonciere are paid by the person living in and owning the house on the first of January each year and normally arrive in autumn of each year.

The Acte de Vente has the same function as property deeds (which don't exist) in France and you can get a copy of this whenever you want from the notaire who handled the sale.
