Buying Process in Portugal
Legal advice for buying Portuguese property
Buying an overseas property is an exciting thing to do and Portugal is a great place to choose. However, it is important to go about things the right way and equip yourself with as much information as possible before settling on that dream home.
One of the most valuable pieces of advice is to instruct your own independent solicitor to assist you with your purchase, just as you would when buying property in the UK.
The estate agent will be a valuable source of information on properties, pricing and the surrounding area and will understand the buying process having been through it many times before, but they are acting for the vendor and you need an experienced solicitor – who understands the language as well – to act for you.
