France: Property rights index
A subcomponent of the Index of Economic Freedom, the property rights index measures the degree to which a countrys laws protect private property rights, and the degree to which its government enforces those laws.
Higher scores are more desirable, i.e. property rights are better protected. Scores are from 0 to 100.
The index also assesses the likelihood that private property will be expropriated and analyzes the independence of the judiciary, the existence of corruption within the judiciary, and the ability of individuals and businesses to enforce contracts.
The Global Property Guide considers protection of property rights as a significant factor affecting the desirability of a residential real estate investment.
France generates excellent house price statistics, produced both by the public and private sector. Quality time-series are published by the National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE) and the Federation Nationale de l'Immobilier (FNAIM). Good data also comes from the Ministere de l'Equipment etc, the Chambre de Notaires de Paris, and the Observatoire National des Marches de l'Immobilier (ONMI). For general economic statistics, consult the Banque de France site.
