Selling Portuguese property to foreign buyers
Our advice when selling a property from Portugal to international buyers is to
Present your property well by using good quality photographs. When writing your description always include how close the property is to major transport links such roads, stations and airports. Always consider who the buyer might be. Offer Golden visa advice and Portuguese market trends to those driven purely by investment. Many overseas buyers buy property as a second home or investment. In this case think about what the property would offer an investor and holidaymaker. Never over price to test the market! This is one of the biggest mistakes owners make when the sell a property online. Buyers will always compare one property against another and the internet makes this easy to do. Always invite people to make an enquiry so they can learn more about the property for sale. Finally consider taking a video of the property to show potential buyers so they can see fully the property.
Legal advice when buying property in Portugal
The legal and other procedures relating to the sale and purchase of property are different to those in the UK, so it pays to research in advance and to take legal advice in order to avoid difficulties and possible disputes later on. You are strongly advised to consult a lawyer who is experienced in land law and property transactions. Make sure he/she is registered with the Law Society.
An increasing number of notaries offer an independent property purchasing service, known as Casa Simples, Casa Segura (information in Portuguese only). Notaries in Portugal are trained lawyers and those offering this service can give legal advice and assist with the procedures for purchasing property, registering the title deeds and paying the relevant duty. If you are considering purchasing a coastal, river or lakeside property, you should ensure it is not affected by the 2005 Water Resources Law. A lawyer or notary will be able to advise you on this.

- Never sign a contract that is written in another language that you don’t understand without a translation.
- Don’t miss out or circumvent any legal procedures for cash benefits offered by the buyer
- Research and follow local laws on buying and renting out property
- Always get written confirmation of what has been agreed in any negotiations and always insist on a paper (preferably not electronic) receipt for monies paid

- Check whether the owner has outstanding utility bills, local tax demands etc that you may be liable for on purchase of the property
- Talk to other property owners in the area or on the development to establish if there are any issues you should be aware of before purchasing (such as floods in winter, lack of water or electricity supplies in summer)

Selling and buying Portuguese property don’t forget about your currency
One of our top tips to people selling and buying a property to people from another country is to research currency exchange methods. Property transactions are all vulnerable to foreign currency exchange rates and small fluctuation can mean huge losses. To negate this risk its always wise to take the advice of a foreign currency specialists who can book rates, provide lowers fees and better rates than many banks. Unless you are buying direct from a developer, before the purchase can go ahead you'll almost certainly need to open a bank account in the destination country. The aim is to ensure that you get the best exchange rates and that the funds are in the right place when they are needed.
