Legal & Purchasing Assistance
As the procedures for buying property overseas can seem bewilderingly complex to a foreigner, we recommend you consult a lawyer before signing any documents. Otherwise you may find you have inadvertently entered into a binding commitment with severe financial penalties for defaulting.
Homes and Villas Abroad is delighted to refer you to one of our trusted partner companies, The Property Organiser, who have a team of lawyers with a wealth of experience in various overseas property markets.
Their services include drawing up contracts; translating documents into your preferred language; carrying out detailed legal, financial and planning permission checks on the status of the property; representing you at the exchange of the final deeds as required by law; and acting as a point of contact for any queries you may have.
Legal assistance plus
If you would like assistance with other parts of the purchasing process, The Property Organiser is also able to help. Its experts can take care of tasks such as finding you a reputable surveyor; applying for a fiscal code and setting up an overseas bank account on your behalf; and registering you for local taxes.
