Lexidy’s legal team across Europe will dedicate their focus to understanding your unique situation and propose solutions that are best for you and your investment. Sometimes, the real estate purchase is pursued for another purpose, such as a Golden Visa. Our team will help you understand which Golden Visa and investment program best suits your needs. Others have moved to a new country and are considering permanent residency, and wish to have their own place in their new home.

 

Our team of Real Estate experts and lawyers will walk you through the process of buying a home and how to avoid the common pitfalls as well as the quirks of the marketplace. We’ll explain how Spain’s Arras works and why you need a well-drafted CPCV in Portugal. We’ll also help you with our analysis of the marketplace so your new commercial property is well-priced and will deliver a return on investment.

The process of buying real estate

What do you want to buy?
Europe is an attractive market for global real estate investors. Investment decisions are protected by rule of law at national and EU level and the market has stable yields or capital gains, depending on the asset you are seeking. Moreover, Europe has something for everybody, whether it’s a Commercial Yachting business in Greece to capitalize on its 227 islands, or a city apartment in Paris for rental income or even a new home on the Spanish coast for retirees seeking a Golden Visa. Once you have decided on the type of asset and where you want to buy it, our legal team of real estate lawyers will ensure that the property is right for you by analyzing your situation and performing due diligence to ensure the investment is proper.
1
Understand the costs and taxes
With a location, purpose and asset confirmed, our real estate team will calculate the fees and taxes that are due. These are usually paid by the buyer and vary from country to country as well as from region to region. Typically, there will be a down payment of 10% to secure the property. This is called an Arras in Spain or CPCV in Portugal, however, in both of those markets, if one of the parties withdraws from then they forfeit the down payment or have to pay double the amount. Beyond that there are notary costs, land registration fees, legal fees and property transfer taxes, which vary on how modern the real estate asset is.
2
Power of attorney
For some investors, regularly traveling to Europe to sign documentation, meet notaries or open bank accounts is time consuming and expensive. It’s simpler and more affordable to appoint a lawyer as Power of Attorney to act on your behalf when conducting the transaction and handling the bureaucracy. The terms and duration of the Power of Attorney are defined by the client, so this will always ensure that the legal representative will always act in the best interest of the investor.
3
Submit and file your visa application
Our English-speaking real estate lawyers will work with our immigration experts to prepare any documentation required for visas via investment. Many ex-pats who buy real estate in Europe do so in order to get a Golden Visa, which is a very attractive residence permit. We will drive you through unfamiliar processes like getting sworn translations, legalization of documents, apostille stamps and meeting Public Notaries. The team at Lexidy LegalTech Boutique has vast experience in mastering these steps and is here to handle visas via investment application. The team will also work closely with the tax team to ensure that you benefit from Europe’s range of special tax regimes, which offer low tax rates to foreigners.
4
Have fun
With your visa in your passport and keys to your new property in your hands, the world is your oyster. The final step is to embrace your new life and have fun. We’ll touch base with you once in a while to ensure that your stay in Europe is going exactly how you planned. Sometimes the unexpected arises and we’re here to ensure that you’re not lost in translation for things like taxes, visa renewals or whatever may arise. Enjoy the ride.

I've worked with Lexidy for three years on my immigration status. They are professional, knowledgable and reliable. In particular, I've worked with Cristina and her team who have provided consistent top-notch service. Cristina has a thorough and clear communication style, and she has been a great source of information. I highly recommend working with Lexidy.

Working alongside Cristina has been an excellent experience. I initially contacted her from Pakistan and had a one-on-one meeting in Madrid upon my arrival. She is an exceptional lawyer with extensive expertise in her field. Despite my numerous concerns and questions, she remained remarkably calm and patiently explained everything to me, demonstrating both her exceptional professionalism and personal qualities.Thanks to her assistance, I obtained my TIE in Spain. For anyone seeking immigration advice or services, I highly recommend reaching out to her. Cristina, along with Lexidy, offers a comprehensive solution for realizing your European dreams. Many thanks, Cristina and Lexidy, for your invaluable support.

We get to know about Spanish Golden Visa by property investment through web searches but as a foreigners we have limited knowledge about Golden Visa application compliance and property sales and purchase governing rules and regulations.There are many websites out there listing out how Golden Visa legal system or property ownership in Spain works but we know it is even beyond language bearer that we need an experience, responsive and dedicated specialist to do the job.We come across Lexidy Law, which specialized in assisting foreigners in Golden Visa application and in our case through the property purchases (there are few types of ways for qualifying on Spanish Golden Visa application).Because of the straightforward services price structure of Lexidy and easy to understand explanations of the home-purchasing process, we felt confident after meeting with Mr.Alejandro who is the first person we met of the application process.During our property purchase, the sale of the house has come to a halt and become a complex and problematic deal as a result of sellers’ family dispute on the sales proceed distribution. The argument lasted for two months, pushing back the completion deadline.The Lexidy real estate team has done an excellent job, in particular with the lead by Señor Juan Diego.Juan is highly knowledgeable, competent and down to earth practical lawyer in this field; his previously work experience in real property gives us good spectrum of views and advices with alternative or solutions and he shows his capability in ranking them logically so we do the decision to choose the best fit for ourselves.He promptly provides updates on every development and highlights complication or consequences from both the seller and buyer perspective (nearly every day). His effective and fluent communication skills in written and spoken English saved thousand words for non Spanish language speakers like us; He maintain his client's best interests in mind yet remain independent in giving his advices.Lexidy's real estate team has spent a considerable amount of time and resources helping us have a successful closure to this property purchase.Yes, we are now proud house owners, and Lexidy didn't charge us extra for the additional work and efforts on the process hiccup. We are impressed and thankful with the professionalism.Thankful Lexidy, it would be impossible for us to have a flawless closure and a successful property transaction which now lead us to the final path of Spanish Golden Visa process which handle by Ms.Laura and her team.It is truly a blessing and we sincerely hope that our review might also benefit you in finding a correct choice of Spanish Golden Visa application service provider.

Update: I received the money in two days after I left this comment, big kudos to the people involved in this. It's really incredible, I did not expect it. Thank you very much!Horrible service! I was their client for almost 2 years and they transferred me to another accountant. All could’ve been great, but they are not returning my money for a service they didn’t complete (around 400€) for already more than 6 months and what is even worse, not even replying to my emails. If I would be you, I would definitely not sign with them.

Exceptional service with exacting details. Not only were the staff friendly but also extremely exhausting to make everything simple, efficient, and clear. Whether it's about the new digital visas or retiring visas, they're your obvious choice!

A great law firm that covers anything an expat might need. I needed help with real estate initially, and they also helped me with immigration, taxes, and corporate legal matters. Fantastic people to work with. Alejandro from their real estate and immigration department is my main contact and he is an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

Outstanding service. Knowledgeable, responsive team of attorneys that is easy to work with. We used them to purchase a property in Madeira Portugal and everything went great. We worked with Vasco, who was a pleasure to work with, very responsive, professional and knowledgeable. We're working with their immigration team now for our D-7 application and they've been great so far. Very helpful and providing the service and help we need to hopefully complete the process. Both my wife and myself have been very pleased with their service and highly recommend using Lexidy Law Boutique.

I had an issue with an incorporation and I had to request a refund for my order. It took a little longer to get the refund but the CEO took personal care of my case and issued the refund as soon as it heard about the case. Very serious and responsible company.

Me and my partner we wanted to get married in Azores, Portugal. Because we are not Portuguese and not living in Portugal it was very complicated to get the paperwork for marriage procedure done. We hired Lexidy Law Boutique Portugal. Our contacts were Diana, Bruna and Margarida. We worked with a very short time window, because we decided for their services just some months before our planned ceremony date. After the plan was laid out, they started to fulfil it immediatelly. I cannot remember the last time, when someone was so responsive and made such an effort. They have encouraged us so positively throughout the process and kept us informed of progress all the time. Bruna was being very supportive and responsive at all times.Lexidy Law Boutique, especially their team Diana, Bruna and Margarida made our wish come true of getting officially married in Azores, Portugal as a foreigner.We highly recommend Lexidy Law Boutique for their services.

Gracias por todo!
