The risks posed by Brexit

Normal 0

I am always reading about the positives relating to buying property in France.  However, as a French property owner myself, I worry about the implications of Brexit and, more exactly, the reported 50 Billion plus divorce bill some are touting around that we could owe.  Theresa May of course is adamant that this sum is ridiculous but, if things start to turn ugly, and both sides dig in their heels, I wonder exactly where us French/EU property owners will stand. 
For example, could we officially be held jointly responsible for the debt our government is refusing to pay?  In this case then, would it not be inconceivable that our properties are taken from us, along with our EU based businesses and Euro bank accounts until the debt is paid?  Exactly how vulnerable are we and how wise is it to invest in a French/ EU property if you are a post-brexit, UK national these days?

Sounds like a troll's scare story to me Stick out tongue [:P]

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Shiftworker, why not go the whole hog and postulate that all Brits in France would be interned in labour camps until the UK Govt paid for our release.

It would make about as much sense as your original post.

Shiftworker, try not to post after a bottle or two of the grape of the grain, it makes so much better sense.

Interesting first post on a forum!


The OP would be advised to cast his bait on another French forum where he will for sure get the results that he seeks.
