Buying a Property Abroad

Always select a Licensed Real Estate Agent many agents operate without being properly licensed which means that you are putting yourselves potentially at risk.

The work of a good estate agent is far more comprehensive than that of an agent in the U.K therefore the importance of the professionalism and the range of services offered by an Estate Agent cannot be over emphasized. The objective of your estate agent should not be to force you to buy a property but to simply help you find your Dream Home in the sun, their major responsibility is to present all the facts honestly and accurately to ensure you are happy in the knowledge that every precaution has been taken to ensure the safety of your purchase.

Services should extend to areas such as preparation of purchase contracts {which should always be in conjunction with your lawyer} arranging introductions to properly accredited legal council and fiscal advisors, assistance with opening bank accounts , assistance and advice on obtaining mortgages ,insurance and a whole host of other necessary financial services.
