French Land Registry searches

Mr Cordiez, a dual-qualified Franco-British lawyer specialising in cross-border property law matters, has created a specialist service enabling English-speaking clients to carry out French property records searches.

The service enables English-speakers to carry out French property ownership checks. Mr Cordiez Land Registry searches services helps individuals, overseas-based companies or other law firms establish who owns a given property in France, or whether a specific person or business owns real-estate property or land in a given area of France.

Such land registry searches are especially helpful for those wishing to obtain copies of French title plans and title registers, or for checking if there are any encumbrances, mortgages or charges recorded against property.

The French land registry plans do not show title boundaries, as is the case with the UK plans. Neither do the plans provide personal information on the owner, the easements over a property, nor the price paid by the present owner.

Various tools are available for individuals who want to obtain information about a specific plot of land and the cadastral record. The plans provided online do not show personal information about the owner. In order to receive information about the properties owned by a certain individual, a request can be made to obtain property records extracts.

To find out the owner of a particular property or parcel of land, or know the property owned by a person in a particular commune, one needs to file some forms with the local land registry office. Local officials may be difficult about it, especially where one tries to obtain the information from abroad.

A dedicated service has been created to overcome the above. Help with French Land Registry searches now is available in English. This innovative service enables individuals, corporations or other law firms to establish who owns a given property in France, or whether a specific person owns real-estate property or land in a given area of France.
