1Who is this Service for?

Renting a property abroad can be rather more complex than the same operation in your home country since the local laws will be different and, often, as a result of language difficulties, it becomes necessary to rely on strangers who may – or may not – have your best interests at heart.

A lease is a contract that creates long term obligations and so should be reviewed by an expert before considering entering into them.

2What does this service consist of?

  • Providing assistance to either landlord or tenant
  • Information on appropriate locations for residential locations locally
  • Assistance to enlist appropriate real estate agencies.
  • Review of the Tenancy Agreement and signature.
  • Assist with changeover of utility companies
