Sell in life annuity? A definition? Trevi explains it all

The sale in life annuity is a contract by which the owner (annuitant) sells a real estate property to a purchaser (annuitant’s beneficiary), subject to the payment of a price converted into a starting capital called “bouquet”, the balance being paid in form of non-taxed life annuities.

Testimonials from our clients

Discover what they say about Trevi.


I was looking for a free life annuity, and the person who had no direct heir wanted to sell the unoccupied house while maintaining a decent monthly income. We both found what we have been looking for: I could live in the house as from the notarial deed, and thanks to the money I was paying, the owner could go to a better rest home. We keep in touch regularly and get along great.

Thibault G.

My wife and I would like to keep the usufruct of the house we had built some years ago. TREVI gave us information about their life annuity department that allowed the occupation by selling the bare ownership of our property. After several weeks of a commercialization phase, we went to the notary for the offer we received through them. Since then, we received an initial payment ('bouquet') of 40,000 € at the sale act, as well as a monthly annuity that meets our daily needs. We are of course delighted to stay at home!

Nicolas et Evelyne S.

Thanks to the life annuity sale of my apartment, I received an amount of 25,000 €! I was then able to finance the ongoing interior renovations, invest money and give money to my heirs. I no longer pay condo fees, and extra income is added to my small pension. The decision to entrust TREVI with this commercialization has changed my daily life in a positive way, and I would like to thank them for this.
