We have recently sold our house in France it was under leaseback with M/V. We bought ourselves out of the leaseback at a fairly high cost, We made loss on the orginal sale + all the bills and the interest on the Mortgage also a proportion of the TVA to pay back. We did have lots of lovely holidays but did pay the price emotionally and financially particually with the management.
So pleased to be out of it all now. Our thanks go to the Agent, the buyers paid the fees which was great considering the treads on this site.
Now getting the money from France has proven to be difficult we have had to jump through hoops to arrange to send it back to the UK.
The whole process has it made it clear to us we would never again buy a house in France.
We wish the people who bought our house every best wish and lots of happy holidays.
