We also had to pay for an interpretor 300 euros, it's to cover the lawyers, you can't accuse them of conducting the business of signing up for property whilst you were disadvantaged by lack of understanding. We weren't given a choice, I thought it a bit pricey, but we did understand what was going on, so we felt better for that.regards Lynnette

Your notaire is legally bound to provide you with a translator at the time the contracts are signed, however well you understand each other.

We had to pay about 200euros for ours, though they wern't really needed.

But that's life, I suppose.

We used P Gavault in Cannes in January and were very pleased with him. He speaks excellent English and , in addition, and without asking, arranged a translator as part of the service when we completed contracts.
