Charles Raton

We are very pleased to offer further translation services when buying a house in France to our clients beyond that of the basic buying process and we fully recommend the expert help of Charles Raton.

Charles can help you with all aspects of the buying process from understanding French mortgages and finance, to obtaining and understanding diagnostic reports and home insurance, as well as the important sales documents such as the Compromis de Vente and the Acte de Vente.

You can book a telephone consultation with Charles at any stage of the buying process via phone or Skype and arrange visits in person for official signings (Charles works in Brittany, Normandy, the Pays de la Loire and the Centre of France).

Charles Raton is a fully insured French to English and English to French translator with international legal experience.

The first consultation is free and if you decide to work with Charles, then a deposit is taken to secure his time and expertise.
