Financing

First of all once again the information already stated above that preliminary contracts contain a time limit according to the rescinding condition (condition suspensive) of the granting of a loan, within which the buyer must request the loan.

Loans awarded for real estate in France are granted by French banks as well as by foreign financing institutes. We kindly recommend you inquire at French institutes as due to obvious reasons French banks can evaluate the real estate area better than their foreign colleagues who are usually somewhat farther away. Normally decisions are made very quickly there.

Due to the fact that financing conditions are consistently changing it is not worth going into detail on this subject here. You can inquire about the current mortgage conditions very quickly directly at the institutes.
