Buying property overseas is a complex process that may entail significant investments and risk. As a buyer, you may find yourself less protected than in your home country, and you may face cultural and language barriers. To avoid uncertainty and higher costs, it is best to hire a conveyancer who is familiar with the real estate laws of the country where you are buying your new property.
In Portugal, the legalities involved in buying property are usually handled by a solicitor, whereas in your own country these are often dealt with through a notary. Given the differences between countries, it is always best to engage a conveyancer before signing any documents and/or paying any money.
Besides the purchasing process itself, there are certain other prerequisites, such as applying for a Portuguese Tax Identification Number and opening a Portuguese bank account.
If you have already signed documents and/or made any kind of payment, it may be too late to ask a solicitor to handle the process, but whatever the issues with your property in Portugal, we can represent you, in court or otherwise.
