Real Estate Services in Portugal

Buy A Property Remotely

At Lexidy, we offer a 360-view service.

Whenever you come up with the idea to purchase a property in Portugal, we will recommend websites where you can take a look at different properties all across Portugal and do a complete takeover of the transaction. 

Well, first it would be with you signing a Power of Attorney in your place of residence or you can come to Portugal to sign it.

The second you find a property that you like, you either visit it or the estate agent takes videos and pictures of the property for you, that is the exact moment where we will spare you the tedious task of dealing with an estate agent that would barely speak English or French since all of our Real Estate Law specialists are fully fluent in both languages besides Portuguese of course; this is crucial for the entire negotiation process that will come down when drafting the Reserve Contract and Arras Contract.

Besides the negotiation process, part of our services is to perform the Due Diligence over the property that you intend to purchase, just to make sure that everything is in order from a legal perspective, for instance, the charges, encumbrances, liens and whatever other debt that the property might have, as in debts with the community of neighbours (spills) or with the town hall/city hall.

We are proud to say that we have several partnerships with architect firms all across Portugal, not only for technical inspections of your future home but also for renovations, certificates of habitability, elaborating blueprints of your property and also to fully construct a home from scratch.

After all of these steps have been completed and the day of the final purchase deed arrives, our services do not stop there, we also take care of registering the property within the Land Registry, we settle the taxes for you, we notify the community of neighbours (in case there is one) that you are the new owner of the property and last but not least, we also help you to register in the town hall as the person living in said property.

Lease Agreements

A well-crafted lease agreement specifies the terms of your rental agreement, lowers liability, and helps protect your investment. As a landlord, you need a high-quality lease agreement that both you and your tenant trust. We have three types of contracts depending on the property asset: residential; commercial; and short-term.

Search The Land Registry

We can search local registries and uncover hidden charges before it’s too late. We can flag risks like outstanding mortgages, encumbrances or debts against a property. Our service gives you information about owner(s) identity, location of the property, classification of the property, possible charges and more.

Consultancy Investment

We ensure that all the appropriate checks and investigations are properly conducted. By ensuring that the property is safe to buy, Lexidy saves its client time, money and stress. Portuguese property clients need specialist advice from legal experts who know the system. That’s where we come in – invest in Portuguese real estate with Lexidy.

CPCV Agreement

An “CPCV” is an important document when purchasing  a property. Essentially, it’s an agreement where the purchaser deposits 10% of the price and other terms of the sale are agreed. A well-crafted CPCV reduces your risk and protects your investment by specifying the terms of your private agreement against the successful completion of the purchase.

Power Of Attorney

If you need to have a legal representative in Portugal that manages your manners on your behalf, while you are not present, Power of Attorney is the perfect option. A Power of Attorney is a legal document that grants an individual or a group of individuals the right to act on behalf of a person in areas where they need it.

Alejandro was helping me navigate the process of nueva obra construction to gain Spanish golden visa. He proved to be very knowledgeable and we had a great phone call where I learned more in 20 minutes than I would have from months of internet research. Unfortunately the property I was looking at ended up not being suitable, which was discovered thanks to his due-diligence, so I was not able to go through the entire process, so I can't provide a review of the full legal process. But I'll be engaging with Lexidy again if I find a suitable property for me in the future!

Comment from Radostin and Kaloyan Bulgaria:We could recommend working with Lexidy and especially with Juan Diego Muñoz to everyone. Our assessment is defenitely 10 out of 10!Strict professional who cover full end-to-end journey in buying real estate and successful relocation to Spain in our case. We highly appreciate efficient and effective approach and providing us and supporting us in each step of the journey in buying property in Spain. Without support of Juan Diego we would be lost, he provides us with daily support in most critical days before finalization of the deal and also there was not even a single question to which he could not provide us details in most structured way.Thank you Juan Diego Muñoz, thank you Lexidy we will be happy working together in the future.We wish you lots of success in your innovative and trustful approach in supporting your customers in a holistic way.Radostin and Kaloyan

I worked with Juan Diego de Muñoz for my real estate lawyer. His help was invaluable to me! He worked with the sellers and real estate agents who were reluctant to engage in the due diligence process for the property I bought. He smoothed that over and helped me obtain a thorough check of my flat and the building it’s in, which yielded important information. Juan Diego made sure my every question and concern were addressed the same day that I raised them. Metaphorically, he held my hand through the whole process, but also made sure I was the one making informed decisions. I highly recommend him and Lexidy Law Boutique!

We are working with Lexidy for our immigration and real estate needs. Our real estate lawyer, Juan Diego Muñoz, has been amazing to work with throughout the entire process. His diligent communication during the real estate purchase has not only kept us informed every step of the way, but helped us to understand the differences and intricacies of purchasing property in Spain. We can't say enough great things about Juan Diego and the team at Lexidy.

Amazing service from Alejandro initially and then Juan. We were intending to purchase a property in Barcelona and Juan conducted all of the checks to ensure the deal was legitimate - it turned out that it was not as straight forward a transaction as initially expected and Juan helped us to avoid a potential financial disaster. We are so grateful and have 100% confidence in Lexidy's professionalism . We will certainly be using them more in the future and highly recommend them!

I am looking to to buy my first property in Spain and had my intro call with Alejandro today- very pleased with the valuable insights gained and your guidance on the legal aspects of the Spanish property market, sales cycle, mortgage application process and risk mitigation. Alejandro, thank you so much for your advice and invested time, I'm genuinely looking forward to working together on this exciting project:)

My wife, 2 children, and I wanted to move to Spain on a non-lucrative visa to experience something new following a stressful covid period. I had the privilege of working with Max and Gabriela, who were outstanding: Fluent English, nurturing us the whole way from initial sales contact through to landing in Spain, refreshingly responsive (usually within minutes, unlike many legal firms which work in units of days!), deeply knowledgable (added so much more value beyond paperwork), professional, experienced, and couldn't do enough for us. Top marks -- and that's from a customer with high expectations! Thank you for the quality experience and for helping us realise our dreams 🙂

We contacted Lexidy Law boutique when we recently moved from Cyprus to open a new chapter in our lives to move into a house in Brittany that we had bought 12 years previously. We had underestimated the twists and turns involved in obtaining residency in France - so we contacted Lexidy Law Boutique and were assigned Eleonore, an immigration lawyer well acquainted with French immigration laws. From the very beginning we realised she was determined that we should have a successful outcome and she guided us expertly to avoid all the pitfalls in the process of applying for residency. She even accompanied us to the prefecture and ensured that everything went smoothly - without her presence we might well have not succeeded.We thank and highly recommend Eleonore and Lexidy Law Boutique.

We have just completed the purchase of a new build apartment in Catalunya. Lexidy were recommended to me by a colleague who'd relocated from the US to the Costa Brava. As non Spanish/Catalan speakers, it was a great relief to have people we could trust working on all aspects of the purchase - including arranging a bank account, NIE's and the wifi..! From the initial meeting over Zoom to the final transaction Carlota and Antonia provided first class service and communication. And by providing them with Power of Attorney it meant we could do most of the things we needed to do without leaving the UK.

Absolutely Professional and worth-it Experience!I can highly recommend working with Carlota Llopart and Lexidy! Carlota and the team have gone beyond my expectations when it comes to owning and actually even driving the steps for my mortgage, the purchase of my flat as well as taxes filed. I have had an extremely difficult seller, but I was able to fully trust the team to guide me through this first acquisition.I have already recommended Lexidy to friends who had similar positives experiences and will continue working with Carlota and the team. Side note, me being German: Great value for money too!

I hired Alejandro to help me get my NIE. I needed the process to go fast, as my future workplace wanted me to start ASAP. Alejandro promised me that I would get it within 3-8 workdays, and he managed to do so. He made the process sooooo easy for me! I would recommend Alejandro any time.

We recently retained the services of Lexidy Law Boutique to file our non-resident tax returns. As US citizens who own property in Lloret de Mar, Spain we were unfamiliar with the complexities of the Spanish tax system. Fortunately, we were able to benefit from the considerable expertise of Jose Garcia, Head of the Tax Department at Lexidy. He explained the procedure in detail to us and was extremely diligence and thorough throughout the whole process. What could have been a challenging situation for us became a very smooth process because of the expertise and capabilities of Jose Garcia and his staff at Lexidy Law Boutique. I would highly recommend the services of Lexidy Law Boutique.
