The Legal Advice by Property Lisbon

The Legal Advice by PropertyLisbon

Legal Advice

When it comes to purchasing and / or selling a property in the country of Portugal, our advice will always be to seek out legal advice. Even though the law of the country of Portugal does not state that it is mandatory to obtain professional legal help when purchasing a property in the country, there is still a great number of licenses that one needs to obtain in this regard, and that are worth checking out. It is mandatory, however, that all documents in regards to the purchase of a property are up to date and that any alterations that have been made to the property have already been reported to and registered at the local municipality.
In the city of Lisbon it is especially common to convert old retail purposed properties into residential habitual purposed properties as many old buildings in the historic centre of the city of Lisbon have shops and offices within them. That is why it is so important to make sure that alterations such as this one are reported to and registered at the local municipality, and approved by it before making the purchase.When purchasing an off plan property or a property that is undergoing a renovation, employing lawyer services is a must, as there are many documents that need to be checked, and it is important that the work which has been set out in the renovation of the building process has been officially approved, and that the timescale which has been given to the investor matches the timescale which has been registered at the local municipality.Here, at PropertyLisbon, we have listened to our clients over the years in order to find out what exactly they are looking for in a law firm.

GREAT SOURCE OF PORTUGAL PROPERTY FOR SALE BY TYPE

One thing that we, at PropertyLisbon, love about our beautiful country of Portugal especially is the laid back way of life and the relaxed feeling that comes over anyone who spends time in our country. The people of the country of Portugal are friendly, eager to help, and speak excellent English which allows any foreigner, whether a tourist or an expat, to feel relaxed and safe in our country.
These, however, are understandably not the kind of traits that one normally wants in a lawyer. Yes, obviously, one does want their lawyer to be friendly and helpful, but not too laid back and / or relaxed preferably, unlike others we like to surround ourselves with in our everyday life.
By keeping this in mind and by listening to the feedback that our clients have provided for us, we are now prepared to help our future clients find a law firm that has had previous experience in dealing with international clients, first and foremost. These lawyers are usually extremely efficient and eagerly and timely answer all the emails and questions that they receive from their clients. All the lawyers in the country of Portugal have obviously been trained in the similar manner and they all pass the same exams, but we have found that the firms that deal with international clients on a regular basis tend to be much more efficient and complete the entire process much faster than the lawyers who work mostly with the domestic clients.
The property market in the city centre of Lisbon is very buoyant at the moment, and once an investor takes a property off the market with a reservation it is important that they sign the promissory at the earliest possible opportunity in order to avoid delays and risk losing the property.
Here, at PropertyLisbon, we are happy to assist our clients and their lawyers with anything that they may need. When listing a property, we request numerous documents from the seller in order to make the process as fast as possible for our clients.
