My boyfriend and I are moving to Greece in summer next year. He is originally from Greece, Corinth to be precisely. We are planning on buying property in Corinth and of course also get a job there.
The question now is: What do we have to consider for our project? What is better: to search for a nice property on our own or to consult a real-estate agent?
Obviously there are plenty oft things you need to think of when buying property in Greece. I found a website on this topic where you already get a lot of tips on the topic, but there is one sentence I don't understand: "Once the suitable property has been found and purchase price and payment conditions have been agreed with the seller, the buyer has to hire a lawyer to conduct a title search with the land-registry that is competent for the area the property is located in" (source: http://www.greece-lawyer.com/practice-a … lden-visa/ ). What does that mean "conduct a title search"? Can anybody help me with that or tell me about his/her experience with buying a property in Greece?
Thanks a mill in advance!
