About Us

Unlike many other agencies we at PWT make no charge for our services of finding you a property, unless you ask us to go and search for a property on your behalf. For complete transparency, we wish you to know that we receive our fee as part of the commission that you pay the agency at the time of purchase. The price that we quote on our house details (FAI = frais d'agence inclus) includes the Agent's fees, but not the Notaire's fee, which are on a sliding scale, but if you add 10% you will more than cover the Notaire's costs and other unforeseen extras involved in the house purchasing process.
PWT works uniquely with IBS, which is situated in Paris with a local Normandy office in Brehal. All the property information included in this pack are properties on IBS's books. If you buy a house PWT acts as the introducer, and it is through IBS that all the paperwork and legal documentation will be completed.

When you buy a property through IBS Philippa Weitz at PWT will be your main point of contact at all times until the Acte de Vente is signed, so that at no stage will you be left struggling with the French language. Madame Carmen MASSON is our French colleague for the southern half of La Manche, and sometimes you may be accompanied by her, she speaks very good English.


PWT NormandyLife is a division of Philippa Weitz Training Ltd. Registered Office: 85 Church Road, Hove BN3 2BB; Registered in England; Company No: 3477157

IBS is located on the Cérences - Bréhal road. From Cérences at the roundabout at the beginning of Bréhal go straight over and IBS is about 500 metres further on, on the right hand side. If you reach the traffic lights at the church you have gone too far!
