ONE of the things to consider when buying a property in France is that the building is free of termites.

This is especially true in the south and south west of the country, which have a higher incidence of termites in properties.

It is possible to treat a place to rid it of termites and if you buy a home then a report should be supplied to say it is clear of the insects.

Map of where termites are found in France

There is a very simple website, www.termites-info.com that offers clear advice and information on the latest rules and regulations.

It also provides a map of the areas of France that suffer from a termite problem.
