Will it?

A popular English language French newspaper reported on recent EU proposals which could allow UK inheritance law to apply to British expats living in France and to their whole estate, including property.

This would totally change the current rules where owners of French properties are subject to long standing Napoleonic laws which require that property is almost always passed through the blood line to children etc with little choice available for the owners.

This decision, if converted to law would allow you to choose your heirs.

Not signed off yet and could take years to be approved, but a very important development which affects hugely the affairs of Brits who choose to live in France.

One to watch!
