I’ve lived and worked in France for 30 years, and I want to make my experience and intimate knowledge of French life useful to others.

Over the years I have helped many English speaking people through a very wide range of situations :  buying and selling a property here in France, navigating the Visa system, applying for French health cover, getting into the French tax system,French civil partnerships, drafting wills, etc.

I was born in the Midlands, took a year off to au-pair and perfect my French in Fontainebleau, then studied law at Kent Law School, Canterbury University (LLb Hons).

I worked for over 7 years for the Groupement Notarial du Carcassonnais, where I carried out property transactions and valuations for 11 notaires for both a French and International client base.

I have been a successful independent consultant for 14 years, with a wide international clientele that keeps going from strength to strength. I also teach at Perpignan University’s Faculty of Legal and Economical Sciences, as well as at the Ecole Supérieure de l’Immobilier in Paris.

It’s so easy for me to share my insider knowledge and help you through what can be a long and perilous journey when you don’t understand the system and/or the language.

Let me take the weight off your shoulders and do the worrying, as well as the endless phoning and form filling-in, for you. I promise you the best quality service to guarantee a better quality life here.
