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. Such as –

  • Ownership
    Boundaries
    Use
    Access
    Planning permission for further development
    Legality of the existing buildings
    Debts on the property and any existing mortgage
    Water – water mines, wells etc
    Electricity
    Any plans for development close by and which could affect the property
    Neighbour’s right to buy

Extra Costs

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.
    Notary charges
    Stamp Duty
    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.
