My husband and I have been in Malta just a few months. We are in the process of opening a bank account with HSBC. We would like to buy a property here and wondered what others' experiences are with very little time / credit history in the island.
What kind of % deposit should we expect to pay? How long does the process take? And are there any tax benefits we should be aware of in the buying process. We both own properties back in the UK and my husband also has a business here doing ok and he has a Maltese business bank account.
