I am not in Portugal. Can I buy a property, from overseas?
AYes. We can arrange for all payments to be made into the account you want overseas.
I am selling my property in Portugal. Can I get paid in my own currency (ex. Pounds)?
AIt is recommended. Without a valid testament in Portugal after one’s death, we might have a conflict of laws (between the law where the assets are and the personal law); Therefore with will in Portugal, it is clear which law to apply and the wishes of the testor, saving time and money.
I have a property in Portugal. Is it convenient to make a will in Portugal?
AIn Portugal all existent properties (urban or rustic) must be registered to be able to be transacted; If they are not registered they cannot be sold/bought; That registration (which is public and national) also tells us whom are the current owners.
What guarantees do I have that a property belongs to the person selling it?
AThe same public registration also tells us whether any loans or mortgages exist.
How can I know that there is a mortgage or charge over a property?
AThat is exactly one of our duties. Before completion we make sure that no leans or charges or mortgages exist, or were properly cancelled/paid.
How can I make sure that when buying there will be no leans/mortgages etc.?
When taxes or condominium costs are involved we also obtain a certificate on inexistence of debts.
