The Villages Group - Frequently Asked Questions
Developments this unique attract a lot of attention and also questions, after all there is nothing else like The Villages in France. Here we aim to answer all of the frequently asked questions
our clients are asking.
SHOULD I/WE SEEK INDEPENDENT LEGAL AND/OR TAX ADVICE?
That is your private choice. However, we strongly advise that you follow the recommendation of many Embassies and Business Organizations:
“If acquiring real estate or doing business in another country, only appoint legal and/or tax specialists licensed and professionally insured in that country; who speak your language fluently and who will supply all documentation legally translated into your language. Then, if there is an “error”, you will be “covered”. Using legal and tax people in your own country that state “they know the other country’s laws” may well prove “expensive”.
CAN WE RENT OUT?
YES – but only to + 50’s and no children.
Important: The “Village” hotel will rent out for you, however, they do not offer “rental guarantees”. Also there are many agents in area who offer rental services; plus a multitude of web “portals” for the lucrative “private” market. The “Village” hotel & services dept. can arrange “changeover”; cleaning; welcome packs etc., whoever rents out.
Can properties be selected 'sur plan' (off plan)?
All properties will be offered on a first come first served basis.
