Hi, sorry, I've not been able to introduce myself.
I'm purchasing a property in Co Mayo and I wondered if I could have some advice please.
The house is owned by a couple who live in Birmingham, UK. As I am currently living in UK, does this mean I could instruct UK solicitors to deal with the purchase as well as the sale of my current property? Or would you recommend instructing an Irish solicitor? I'm thinking it might also be cheaper to use UK one, especially on the transfer of funds. There seem to be quite a few solicitors who deal with international property and are based in UK.
I've emailed the agent in Ireland to ask him to find out what they are doing, but haven't heard back as yet:(
Has anyone else bought a property this way?
Thanks for reading.
