Entrust us with your property search mandate.

Are you planning to purchase a luxury property or a business, including a commercial business?

Entrust us with your property search mandate: In addition to the legal services offered by FRELA, you can assign one of our attorney agents or real estate agents to conduct a thorough search of properties across the entire market.

Receive a selection of properties that match your needs. We conduct searches throughout the entire market in France, leveraging our clientele, networks of real estate agents, notaries, accountants, and lawyers, along with our dedicated real estate search tools.

Benefit from our Association of Mandate Attorneys network. As the main association of attorney agents in France, the network provides us with access to “off-market” businesses and real estate from our fellow attorney agents across France, enabling us to present you with unique properties that are not available elsewhere.

Mandate Fees: A percentage of the transaction applies after acquisition.

  • Scenario 1: The property is introduced by FRELA: The total invoiced fees range from 5% to 10% of the transaction.
  • Scenario 2: The property is not introduced by FRELA: The total invoiced fees range from 1.5% to 3% of the transaction.

(Transaction fees are only due upon the conclusion of the transaction; the fees for legal and tax assistance upfront will be deducted from the mandate fees, which consist of a percentage of the transaction price).
