As with all professionals involved with property transactions, property hunters in France are subject to the Law of 2 January 1970 known as the “Loi Hoguet” (cf. Art 1 L. 02 Jan 1970) and the related implementation order of 20 July 1972.
Property hunters must hold a professional licence, the “Carte T”, issued by the Préfecture de Police or, since 1 July 2015, by the nearest Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI). They must also have professional liability insurance, a financial guarantee and a search mandate.
Perle Rare is registered as professional card-holder No. CPI 7501 2016 000 011 828 with the Paris CCI. We have a professional liability insurance contract with SAA, and a financial guarantee granted by SOCAF.
