About LBV IMMO SARL, Central Office

The friendly professional team running LBV Immo have been involved providing a service to home owners in France since 2002 – and now bring that same level of expertise helping prospective purchasers looking for property in France, to find their own perfect property. We specialise in two areas of French much beloved by the ex-pat community – Brittany where our central office is based, and further south, the Dordogne.

No matter how early it is in your “journey” to France – and whether that is towards a permanent home or a much loved holiday home – then Verity Reeve and the small but perfectly formed LBV Immo team of agents are here to help you every step of the way en route to all things French.

There is not only a lot of property to choose from but also a lot of well-meaning mis-information out there and we will help you to pick your way through the maze and arrive at your destination in the best possible shape and complete with all-round support. We pride ourselves on our pro-active response to your requirements and that coupled with our local knowledge, customer service and experience of helping hundreds of people just like you all help to make LBV Immo stand out from the many other agencies which exist here.

We know our prospective purchasers are looking to buy into not just a property but a whole new way of life, whether that is for a few months of the year or for a permanent move. We will show you where the nearest café is and what amenities there are in the local community: and the most important thing we will spend with you is TIME. Time to find out what you are looking for: to find out what you don’t want – one man’s precious exposed beam is another man’s nightmare: ancient or modern – tranquil or bustling – within walking distance of the boulangerie or tucked away in an isolated location – we’ll listen to what you want and we’ll come up with some choices for you.

That said, having listened to you prior to your arrival to view properties, we will sometimes throw in a visit to the mystery property much beloved by TV programmes. We have to say, they are often an instant hit with our purchasers who are still shaking their heads when they sign to buy the property and cheerfully admit without our suggestion, they would never have looked at THAT property.

Uniquely placed to advise you, we have our own associated French Planning Expert (Arthur Cutler from www.frenchplans.com) who can not only find out for you whether all the correct planning permissions have been obtained for the property of your choice but also advise on any potential extensions or changes you may have in mind, before you commit yourself to the purchase.

As a matter of course, once your mind is made up, we will continue our hand-holding throughout the purchase process, and beyond, acting on your behalf with the local notaire and pointing you in the direction of our recommended financial exchanging partners who will work hard on your behalf to get you the best possible rate for your exchange into euros. We will open a French bank account for you, organise insurance for the property from the day of purchase and set up the utility company accounts in your name.

There is nothing to lose and everything to gain by giving Verity a call for an initial chat – and we’ll take it from there – you’re in safe hands with LBV Immo.
