    Signed the CdV today and I’ve been asked to make a list of what contents I’m “selling” to the buyer so that they can knock this off the house price to save them tax on the house purchase. This is obviously open to abuse and I’m sure the tax hungry French system will put a limit onto the sum. So is there a percentage that will go through with no problems? €70.000 sale price, would €7.000 ie 10% get past the authorities?

    I think it is 5% but not completly sure of that, and the value of the furniture is “second hand value” of course.  The best person to ask is your notaire.

    Depends on what you’re selling Alan. If the stuff you’re selling is good quality stuff then maybe but the usual figure is around the 2K mark maximum. Seven thousand euros can buy a lot of second hand stuff but if it included a car or tractors etc then maybe.
    The notaire would normally advise you on the sums involved.

    Unfortunately Babeth and Pete she wouldn’t give a figure. Will go for 5% ish. Mostly second hand furniture of debatable price!

    It would have been better to agree the house price and the price of the contents with the buyer ,before going to the Notaire.

    A Notaire will certainly  not get mixed up in pricing house contents without having them valued.

    You can also just decrease the selling price , inform the Notaire of this and sell the contents separately to the buyer, cash .

    The golden rule is do not take the p*** If you have second hand furniture and just that the notaire will know the rough value and may refuse to process the transaction which is why you have to list things List everything get the buyer to agree the price for them get them to sign to say they want to buy the stuff at X price That is certainly what I did on my last sale Best of luck
