Property Tips ??

Post Posted: Fri Jan 08, 2010 12:05 am

Hi

Have you learned a valuable lesson while buying or renting a property in Greece/Greek Islands, which you'd like to pass on to other expats?

Do you have any tips which others might find useful?

We'd like to improve our coverage of property issues in the Greece/Greek Islands Country guide and are looking for up-to-date, accurate information and experiences.

We would be really interested in your comments Very Happy

Many Thanks

Carole

Number one lesson - make sure that you understand all the contract terms clearly - ie get it translated into English.

Number two lesson - if you are having any building work done (from having a house built downwards) either make sure that you are there to supervise or employ a site manager whom you can trust.

Make the necessary property checks and make sure your lawyer and notary are good professionals. Many horror stories around mate. As Gelis above said you need to get a grasp of the contract terms. When renting as an owner make sure the guy you lease it to is going to make payments and be committed. I suggest making sure he has work etc.
I was lucky enough to have a good Greek lawyer helping on both immigration and real estate issues and i cannot recommend the guy enough. www.athenslawoffice.com speak to Giannis
Good luck.
