Having purchased 5 properties here over the years I can confirm that any property with over a hectar of land has to go through SAFER for them to offer it to local farmers.The notaire does it and it usually takes a couple if months minimum, unless you pay for it to be done quickly, not worth it as we did here six years ago and it still took two months.

Noooooo. :D

You can pick up large properties in town with that type of land. Why would SAFER be interested ?

Chateaux (ten a penny around here for sale) most of which have hectares of land. You can't farm it. :lol:

Maybe it depends on the classification of the land - eg agricutural or urban, whether it could be built on, or not.
I don't know enough about the different types of land to say more.

Chateaux's sales if they have land are subject to SAFER, not often you are wrong :lol:
