Florence Richards

French Property/Tax Adviser

The service Furley Page, and in particular Florence Richards, gave to expedite of the sale of my house in France was outstanding. The process was made more difficult by the house being owned by a company. Florence ensured the correct authorities in France were contacted and she was able to liaise with them to expedite the sale. This would not have been achieved without her expertise and knowledge also her dogged determination to achieve a result.
