Propriete Nue and Usufruit Property Investments

With the present banking crisis, resulting share price collapse and dropping interest rates, many are looking for a safe haven for their funds. If you are in this position, have you looked at putting your money into French usufruit and propriete nue property placements? We feel this is a safe haven for the protection of your funds.

Roman law allowed one to divide full property ownership into two distinct property rights, ownership of the walls - propriete nue- and use of the property - usufruit. French law being based on Roman law also has this same law.

The owner of the usufruit has to pay all property taxes etc, maintain the property, can let the property or occupy it during the fixed term of his usufruit, But at the end of the usufruit he must leave the property empty and in good repair for the owner of the propriete nue who then has full ownership of the property.

If the term of the usufruit is 15 years or more the owner of the propriete nue can, at the end of the term, sell full ownership with no French capital gains tax to pay. As the original price of the propriete nue is fixed at somewhere between 50% and 65% of the full value, regardless of property price trends there is likely to be a significant capital gain.

We haver seven developments in different regions of France where we can offer propriete nue investments. Visit this page for more details on how usufruit and propriete nue investments work As propriete nue usufruit investment is very popular with French investors, available lots are limited in number.
