- Land Registry taxes (known as TPF – Taxes de publicité foncière) of approximately 5.1%
- Miscellaneous expenses – calculated according to various documents that the notaire must search and examine in order to draft the deed of sale.They usually amount to less than €700.
- The notaire‘s service fee, set at 0.825% for properties over €16,800. The fee is subject to VAT (value added tax) of 19.60%. If each party is represented by their own notaire, that fee is split between the two.
