The English are on tv this Saturday afternoon
TF1 'Reportages' at 13.15 pm
A quick translation from tele z

Trois Anglaises et le continent
Three english women and the continent

It should of been a beautiful story .
'The good life' à la Française over the last few years.British couples with or without children.Came to live in the south-west of France.
Pretty houses a soft climate flowered villages and suddenly......the dream turns into a nightmare!
When the husband decides to leave.
This is what Mitch,January and Maria-Louise went through.
The English have sometimes a vision idyllique of France and the return to reality can hurt.


RedWine,

Thanks for the info - Do you know if this available in the UK on an iPlayer equivalent?

FRENCH VILLAGE FOR SALE!

Daily Telegraph

Got £275,000 lying around? A deserted French village can be all yours. Courbefy, located in the Limousin region, comes with 19 buildings, including family homes, reports the Telegraph.

Be forewarned: Neighbors say it's frequented by "thieves, drunks and squatters," and one dubbed it a ghost village. But it does have a swimming pool. The deadline for bids is Friday!

The income should be declared in France and tax paid via a French tax declaration. I'm assuming you own the property - if so, pop into your local Centre D'Impots (Tax Office) and ask to speak to someone about which form you need to fill in. I suspect it will be form 2042 which is the standard tax return.

Actually it's not my property.

If the income should be declared in France then wouldn't it be best to be paid in Euros?

It can be done if you really want it.

Democorruptcy
If you say "Democorruptcy" quickly, it sounds a bit like "Democracy". In a "Democracy" people vote for politicians who represent their interests. In the UK's "Democorruptcy" people can only vote for expense fiddling thieving MPs who are in the hip pocket of big business and the finance sector.

Governbankment
A "Governbankment" is a Government that has no line between itself and it's banks. The UK's Governbankment does policies to enrich bankers at the expense of the public. The more money people are encouraged to borrow, the more money bankers make.

The Funding for Lending Scheme (FLS) is stealing from savers to make them pay for crimes by bankers. Via lower interest on savings, all the bank fines for PPI, LIBOR and interest rates swaps are now being paid by savers so that bankers can keep pocketing bonuses.

"We need to make a really big change: from an economy built on debt to an economy built on savings" - David Camoron Jan 2009
"Printing money is the last resort of desperate governments when all other policies have failed" - George Osborne Jan 2009
- So what do Camoron & Osborne do? Print money and leave interest rates at 0.5% when inflation is over 5%

If it is asserted that civilization is a real advance in the condition of man -- and I think that it is, though only the wise improve their advantages -- it must be shown that it has produced better dwellings without making them more costly; and the cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.

FRENCH VILLAGE FOR SALE!

Daily Telegraph

Got £275,000 lying around? A deserted French village can be all yours. Courbefy, located in the Limousin region, comes with 19 buildings, including family homes, reports the Telegraph.

Be forewarned: Neighbors say it's frequented by "thieves, drunks and squatters," and one dubbed it a ghost village. But it does have a swimming pool. The deadline for bids is Friday!


The deadline came to an end yesterday and nobody made a bid!
As of today the new proud owners of Courbefy are the Crédit Agricole (the farmers bank)
The auction was a 'juridical auction' it was the bank that was putting the hamelet up for sale and they fixed the 300K price
They were trying to recover the loan they made to a French couple from the Gers who bought the hamelet in 2003
This couple bought Courbefy in 2003 they wanted to open a hotel and a holiday centre
In 2006 there business was not working out as they planned and they put Courbefy up for sale for a million euros
By 2008 they left but it was still on the market with a price fall( new price 700,000 euros)
2012 five years later it ends up in court for 300,000 euros and nobody wants it apart from the local council but they said that its to expensive!
A farmer sorry a spokesman from the bank said today" that they were going to think about what they will do with regards to Courbefy"

http://carteimmo.fr/

This is a new website that has been around since last week
Its a mixture of leboncoin and Google maps
To use it you click onto buying or renting
Then add on your town or postcode
Thats normally enough but you have a price size and surface size as well!
Once you have entered what you are looking for you should be able to (more or less) pin-point exact locations of property that is on the Boncoin
Most EAs and websites in France are misleading when it comes to exact locations of property
You might be looking for a town -centre location but the advert that you are looking at turns out to be 40 miles away!

Just some background info the webmaster that invented this site said that he lived in one town and his girlfriend in another!
He couldn't find any where for them to live( a sort of half -way distance due to there jobs) so he invented this site last week

Come on you lot.

I need some help to figure something out.

Would there be any issues in renting a property out in France but being paid in sterling into a UK account?

you have already had several answers.



No, I haven't. I had one.

Redwine: it's not about me wanting to rent somewhere, It's just a general question about where it would be sensible to make the rental payments into - or more to the point, why someone would prefer to use a UK sterling rather than a French Euro account.

Edit: Actually, on re-reading I see that Wannabe half answered my question. It should be declared in France, okay. But what would be the benefit to the landlord to have it paid into a UK account in sterling?

La Vie Nouvelle
The New Life 27/2/12
Chambery and Savoie
La Savoie attire les Francais et les etrangers
The Savoie attracts the French and the foreigners
Quote
The figures are collected to evaluate 'the property market' using sales and property transactions.
These stats are the stats that INSEE use says Michel Carmoz president of the Notarys of Savoie.
The study made in 2011 shows a massive increase in the price of property.
Over the last 10 years the price of flats have increased by 107,5% in the Savoie (113% in France)
A fall -0,9% in the Savoie for 2011.
The same for houses +100% In the Savoie (+90.5% average national)
In this context the banks have an important role to play they must continue to lend!
Average prices per m2 for old property 2,909 euros (+1,1%)
+3% in Chambery at 2,115 euros.
In the ski-stations we sell studios.
In Chambery we sell 4 room flats.
For the first time the notarys are interested in the origins of the buyers.
77% of land bought is bought by the locals.
70% of houses again bought by the locals.
"We have noticed a fall in the number of foreign buyers in the Savoie especially the British .
Although there are more Belgians.
This fall was first noticed in 2007 at the start of the 'economic crisis'.

IMHO They do not give out the number of sales or prices as usual just percentages
At least they are coming out with "we are selling"
They are public servants paid on average 23,000 euros a month!
