Local authorities

(Search for owners or their beneficiaries)

French law makes it the local authorities’ responsibility to find the owners of any vacant buildings in their localities (refer toFrench law of 13thof August 2004 and article 713 of the Civil Code). The law deems vacant property to be public property ; nevertheless, an investigation must be carried out to identify the owner and / or his beneficiaries.

Why should you appoint us?

Our office can carry out this mandatory research for the heirs without your local authority having to pay. Our fees are always deducted from the share of the inheritance going to the heirs.

In case the search is limited to simply identifying the owner, our fees are fixed and determined by joint agreement.
