Client testimonials

"Tiago is a true professional. He understood what I needed, acted diligently in executing his tasks, and responded to my requests for updates in a timely and courteous manner. His knowledge of Portuguese laws and it’s bureaucracy, were commendable. His price rates were reasonable.

I hope he continues to built his clientele, both in Portugal and overseas, especially in the United States. He does a very good job. No improvement needed."

1Who is this Service for?

A common problem faced by separating couples is, what to do with the foreign holiday home.

Sometimes the couple decide to put the property in the name of one, while the other takes an equivalent property elsewhere.

On other occasions, agreement is not possible, and one co-owner wishes to divest themselves of an asset that they maybe they no longer use. However, without the agreement of their co-owner, this is complex. A forced sale is possible, but expensive.

2What does this service consist of?

  • Initial discussion with an English-speaking lawyer specialising in property law to determine the co-owners specific situation and advice on the options available
  • Attempt negotiation with the other co-owner to try to reach an agreement to sell the property, it being in everyone’s financial interest
  • Upon failure to reach agreement, legal proceedings can be initiated to obtain a Court Order to force a sale of the property at public auction
  • A public auction is to be avoided as a very low bid can potentially take the property – potentially by the other co-owner - which is why we recommend that your lawyer attends the auction on your behalf to monitor the auction.
