the essentials Who wants to buy the former sub-prefecture of Nérac? The 1400 m2 building from the first half of the 19th century will be auctioned this Tuesday, March 9th from 12.00 on the agorastore.fr website, which specializes in the sale of goods from local communities. The sale lasts until Thursday, 4 p.m. We offer you a little tour by the owner.
“The former sub-prefecture has always belonged to the ministry. The state was rented in this building,” recalls Nicolas Lacombe, mayor of Nérac and vice-president of the Lot-et-Garonne department council responsible for education. “It’s a bourgeois building that was built under the July Monarchy in 1835,” says Neracais’ first councilor, a teacher who knows the history of his city inside out.
He is also very familiar with the terms of sale of the former sub-prefecture: “This auction will not only be a question of price. It is also necessary to be reasonable with the project surrounding the acquisition. We cannot sell such a building without it. ” We don’t want a simple real estate transaction to turn this place into apartments, for example, but we are not against buying a private individual to make it their private property. “The city has long hoped that a restaurant owner would inquire about information and would not have been against a bed and breakfast project. However, it remains to be seen whether there are candidates for this type of project in the current health context.
