What's in the Portugal Property Guide?

  • Brexit and your holiday home – it’s brief because nothing has changed and Brits will always be able to buy and enjoy property in Portugal, some of the detail may change and we will have more when it is known.
  • Brexit and living permanently in Portugal – if you’re thinking of living in Portugal permanently then now is a good time to make the move and acquire residency rights.
  • There's a run-down of the popular areas to buy a property in Portugal, including; the Algarve, the Silver Coast, the Blue Coast, Lisbon, Carvoeiro, Lagos, Loule, Madeira, Portimao, Porto Santo, Quinta da Lago, Tavira, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura.
  • A helpful legal briefing on the main points to consider during the process of purchasing your property including what costs you can expect to pay, and when.
  • One service that is often overlooked is transferring your money to Portugal, so we are pleased to have had the support of our online currency partner Smart Currency Exchange, and also online information resource the Overseas Guides Company.

We hope our buying guide to Portugal will inform, enlighten and set you on your way!
