How much are Notaire fees on the purchase?

The buyer should normally expect to pay fees and taxes of about 6.5-7.5% of the purchase price. These break down roughly as follows:

  • 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.
