Buying a small parcel of land
by Sevy • Fri 04 Feb 2011 12:19

Hi
Does anyone have experience of buying a piece of land. We would like to buy an adjacent parcel to use as additional garden/Veg plot. What costs would be invovled and how much does land normally sell for?
It is approx 30x50 metres.

We are in the process of doing just that, so are finding out as we go along!
We have to pay fees to the notaire and the geometre, we know, so far and then it depends on who owns the land. Ours is owned by La Creuse so Le Service du Domaine will fix the price, we wait with bated breath to see how much they want!
Some friends of ours just bought some woodland and it cost them about 3000 euros for about 2 acres, I think.

If you go to your local mairie, they'll have maps of all the currently identified parcels of land in your commune, and (at least in St-Georges-N) they'll make a copy of the area you're interested in. Each little parcel has an associated number, and these sometimes change as land is sold back and forth, but their version is supposed to be up-to-date. They may even have some local gossip about land prices which they may share with you.
BTW, one hectare is about 2½ acres

It seems that the notaire's fees are correspondingly higher if you pay a smaller amount for the land. eg on a small piece of land costing 100 euros, the fees were 300 euros; for a piece costing 2000 euros, it was 600 euros. I know they work to a set fee schedule, but interesting to note that you pay more for less land!
