Buying a house can be a complex process, especially if you’re doing it for the first time and in a foreign country.
A different country comes with different customs, laws and regulations, and having to cope with a foreign language can make things even more daunting. On February 21 four experts will guide you through the process of buying a property so you can make a decision about owning your own home.
In addition to the initial difficulty in finding the home of your dreams: the maze of legal work, negotiations, dealing with surveyors and notaries and worrying about the deal falling through would be enough to make anyone’s hair stand on end.
Fortunately good advice is available to help make your home-buying experience as easy and problem-free as possible.
