Good news on 3 fronts

The French Government has announced that access to the French Health service will now be available for "early" retirees – a reversal of the previous legislation that caused many people caught up in this trap a lot of problems. Thus the gap between the expiry of reciprocal health cover provided by the S1, (issued for up to 2 years based on N.I. contributions) and the S1 issued on reaching UK retirement age has been completed. This reverses the decision made back in 2007. It means that, providing contributions are made to the French Health Service ex-pats will be entitled to exactly the same cover as French Nationals. The French Government previously had announced the abandonment of the proposed new tax on foreign owned holiday homes – “maisons secondaires”. This U-turn came about when they realised that it impacted significantly upon the many French citizens working overseas and how they would be affected by such a tax. With an election scheduled for 2013 the Government cannot afford to risk upsetting these potential voters. Special Offer – 300 Euros refund ! To qualify for this refund, you need to spend a day viewing with us (normally 4 or 5 properties), and then purchase via ourselves.
