when selling certain types property in small rural villages...

When we bought our home back in 2003, because it held certain criteria we were told that the mairie/commune had first refusal on properties/land that might interest them. Subsequently, even though we'd put in an offer, we had to wait until the time limit was up for the commune to show an interest.

Now, was someone winding us up, or does this still apply in certain circumstances? :-? I can't imagine it could ever apply to every property that comes up for sale, just ones that might hold some value for the commune ... :-\

We had the same situation when we bought our town house in Bayonne in 2007. We had a nervous wait while the Mairie decided whether or not they wanted to buy it for the commune.

Thanks - I thought perhaps I'd dreamt it! So, if I have something to sell - I'd better take a copy of the particulars up the the Mairie! :-bd

Bayleaf, all this (i.e. Droit de Préemption Urbain (DPU)) should be handled by your Notaire; there is no need for you to be involved directly. My understanding is that the first step is for your Notaire to send a Declaration d'intention d'aliéner (DIA) to the Mairie.

Bonne chance with your sale!

Fred

Thanks Fred, we haven't got as far as a Notaire yet, as it'll hopefully be a private sale, and we have no interested parties, I'm just sorting out the advertising.

Just to add to Fred's post - the preemptive right is regulated. You can ask the mairie at any time whether your property is within a pre-defined area. Exercise of the commune’s right is for limited purposes (subject to their interpretation, bien sûr :lol: ).

The property in question is apparently not in the pre-defined area (although by the way she was waving her arms about, the secretary implied that nowhere around here was - there were no Droits! :lol: )
