Property Buying Tips
Buying property in Portugal is not complicated and can be very straightforward provided the property is all sorted legally. There is good protection both for the buyer and for the seller. But it is essential that you have the correct expert support and advice to take you through the process. There are many aspects that need to be fully checked before making the purchase.
When purchasing property there are extra costs you will need to take into account. You should allow 3-10% on top of the purchase price to cover things like:
- Purchase Tax (IMT) which is based on a sliding scale from 0% to 6.5% of the declared value.
Legal charges usually around 700-1,000 euros. Always find out how much your lawyer will
charge before you instruct them to do any work.
Doing your research and gaining a good understanding of Portugal and the purchasing process makes a big difference, there is an excellent book written by Gabrielle Collison – Buying Property in Portugal. This book, written in English is a very concise and clear read covering everything you need to know when buying or renting in Portugal.
