Our aim is
to provide an efficient and professional service and to ensure that the
purchasing of a property in Greece is a pleasurable and successful experience.
During inspection visits clients will be driven around, either by Andreas who speaks English or his English associate, and introduced to the area whilst viewing the properties for sale.
Recently built and renovated houses will be available for inspection and in some cases the owners will be at home to share their thoughts and experiences.
Accommodation can be arranged and we shall be happy to advise on travel arrangements.
We are well aware of the concerns which people have when moving to another country and advice and help on such matters as health, tax, insurance, cars, utility bills etc will be readily available.
Language will not be a problem as you will meet professional people who speak
English and we can introduce you to English speaking lawyers.
All the paper work involved in a purchase will be carried out on your behalf and the necessary preparation and arrangements made for the signing of contracts.
Once the property has been chosen the prospective purchaser engages a lawyer who carries out searches in the Property Registry to ensure that there are no adverse encumbrances.
After the search has been successfully completed and the price agreed the taxes are paid.
Negotiations on your behalf are carried out with the tax authorities in order to arrive at the assessed value of the property which is based on size, type and location. This is the figure on which taxes and fees are based.
Arrangements will then be made for the transfer documents to be presented
before a local public notary in order to complete the contract.
The lawyers of both vendor and purchaser are present to check the contract and terms, accuracy and time of payment. At this stage topographical details of the land and building plans are checked and appended to the contract.
The contract is then read out, and translated if required, in the presence of two witnesses after which it is signed by all parties.
If the purchaser is unable to attend then it can be arranged for someone to be granted the power of attorney and to sign on behalf of the client. The public notary will register the property and deposit the deeds at the Property Registry office where they are retained.
The purchaser receives a validated photocopy of the deeds.
