Vente en l’Etat Futur d’Achèvement

All the IRS properties are sold by the provision of a “Vente en l’Etat Futur d’Achèvement (VEFA)”.

A sale in a future state of completion is the contract by which a seller transfers at once to the buyer his rights to the ground as well as the ownership of the existing structures. Construction works become the property of the buyer as they proceed; the buyer is bound to pay the cost of them. With the “VEFA”, the price of the residence is payable in installments as the work proceeds, in accordance with the provision of articles 1601-1 to 1601-45.


Garantie Financière d’achèvement

In accordance with the requirements of the VEFA, the development has resorted to a performance bond (Garantie Financière d’Achèvement – GFA) with a trusted banking institution. The GFA acts as a means of ensuring to the buyer the delivery of the property according to the conditions stipulated in the contract. In the event of the promoter failing to perform his obligation, the banks will be the guarantors of the delivery of the development.
