The VEFA system

Sale through a VEFA contract involves that:

The GFA – My villa, no matter what!

In line with VEFA requirements, the property developer must first secure a performance bond (Garantie Financière d'Achèvement – GFA) from a reliable banking institution.

The GFA guarantees delivery of the property to the purchaser according to the provisions of the contract. In the event that the property developer does not meet his obligations, the bank will guarantee delivery of the property.

The buyer must provide a bank guarantee for future VEFA payments.

Instalment plan
The purchaser will make regular payments throughout the construction process under the Government-regulated VEFA (Vente en l’État Futur d’Achèvement) system.
