During the presentation:
Our Company Representative will be able to answer any questions you may have about the property you are visiting, as well as more general questions that may concern the process of purchasing a property.
ABC DEVELOPMENT is looking forward to meeting you up close, and it will be our pleasure to meet your real estate needs in the best possible way.
Greek law requires buyers to have their own lawyer, during the process of buying and selling the property, which gives you the best guarantee that the process follows the correct methods. Your solicitor will draw up a power of attorney, which means that he or she will be able to sign any supporting documents in your absence. Therefore, you do not need to be present either in the purchase process or in the signing of the contract. You can of course handle the buying process yourself, but the cost will not be less.
The lawyer will arrange to:
- open a bank account
- to issue VAT.
- to consider any legal encumbrances on the property
- to examine all the contracts that have been registered in the property
- the control of the technical plans concerning the property
- payments from the customer
- the contract for the notary
The time you estimate from the deposit to the signing of the final contract is about two (2) weeks.
The cost of property ownership in Greece is minimal - there are no annual property taxes unless the value exceeds 411,000 euros. Water charges are based on usage by the meter. Solar installation is a given, offering hot water at no extra charge for at least 11 months during the year.
In case of using central heating, we estimate the annual heating costs at approximately 200-250 euros. The cost of insurance is low, around 250 euros per year for a property of about 100 m2. This offers insurance against both fire and theft.
Once you find your dream home you will need to make a small deposit to withdraw it from the market. Then the ABC DEVELOPMENT will provide your lawyer with all the necessary documents to make all the necessary legal checks on the property as well as to prepare the papers for the final contract.
Usually this procedure does not take more than two (2) weeks. It is self-evident that the deposit will be refunded in case there is a sticking during the above procedure.
In case the house is finished (key-ready), the deposit is set at 20% and the remaining amount is paid by signing the final contract. In any case, based on what stage of construction your house is in, you will pay in installments the remaining price based on the following table.
Method of Payment (when the house is still under construction)
5% down payment (engagement)
30 days (by deposit) 15%
Start of earthworks 20%
Erection of masonry 20%
Plastering - Floor - Roof 20%
Home delivery 20%
