Real Estate Legal Assistance in Greece
Valmas & Associates are expert Greek Real Estate Lawyers that provide clients with leading professional assistance with any issue related to the:
acquisition (eg buying a house in Greece or buying a hotel in Greece),
purchase (buy a house in Greece or buy a hotel business in Greece),
of properties in Greece at highly competitive rates.
Our professional services include tracing property titles all over Greece and investigating and providing reports on the legal and actual status of the property in question, that is whether it is clear for transfer, whether ownership of property is disputed etc.
The supervision of an independent Greek attorney (not an attorney the seller or realtor will provide) when buying property in Greece is extremely important as real estate law in Greece is complex and requires an independent, competent, honest party to search titles for defects or burdens, supervise, co-draft and approve the process of buying property in Greece. Our extensive experience on the area of Greek Real Estate Law and Greek Immigration Law (in the event you apply for a Residence Permit for Property Owners in Greece) shall provide you with peace of mind as you will end up with a clean property title and a successful grant of a residence permit (if you also apply for a Schengen Residence Permit in Greece). Also, In recent years some "immigration agencies" have appeared in the market (especially in China) offering packages by allocating very cheap properties and selling them at a whopping profit. You need to be cautious as you may end up getting a property that its real value may be much less than 250.000 EUR. Whereas this will still grant you the residence permit (as long as you paid over 250.000), it is not a sound investment if its real market value is e.g half of what you paid. Appointing an independent Greek lawyer is vital in getting your money's worth.
Golden VISA Greece Programs: Non EU citizens owning or purchasing property of a value/price in excess of 250.000 EUR can acquire a valid residence permit in Greece indefinitely, thus gaining access to all Schengen countries. This way property owners make the expanding of their access to Europe possible. Greece currently offers unprecedented opportunities in the real estate market as prices are low and prospects for a return in the original investment high so long as you make the right choice on the property.
