Property Search and Viewings

Prior to your visit you are invited to search for property in Bulgaria for sale and rent on this site. Please bear in mind that we are unable to upload all properties onto our web site and you should send off your particular requirements via our online questionnaire.Thus we will forward any further offers that meet your requirements. You will also be sent by post or email a copy of our complete Buyer's Guide. Most of your questions should be covered by the guide but you may have some particular queries that the staff would be more than happy to answer.

You should allow at least one week for your inspection trip to Bulgaria. Please bear in mind that the property viewings involve extensive travel if you wish to purchase a rural property. If you wish to visit more than one region you should foresee at least two days for viewings in each region and half day transfer between the regions.

If you would like to book the flights yourselves the staff of our offices will be ready to organise the rest of the particulars locally arranging airport pick-up, accommodation and transfers between the regions.

If you prefer to leave the entire organisation with us please send the details through our Inspection Trip form and you will be contacted with information on travel options.

Once in our offices you will be briefed about various properties matching your criteria and will decide which properties you would like to see. The staff, all of whom speak English, will take you to view the properties of interest and their surroundings. They will help with any enquiries you might have and give you as much information as possible about the region, immediate area and villages. The viewings are free of charge.

Legal Advice and Representation

Having located your property the next stage is to complete the legal work for which we use only experienced and reputable lawyers. They will check the property title and inform you of any irregularities concerning the boundaries (this is one of the biggest problems with deals in Bulgaria). They will also ensure that there are no debts against the property. During the legal checks our lawyers will prepare a preliminary contract. This is the most important stage of the legal work and no fixed-format contracts are used. Our lawyers will draft in each case a preliminary contract that clearly outlines the obligations of both parties, in particular any irregularities that the seller is required to resolve prior to completion. Once all of the obligations have been completed our lawyers will also prepare the final contract which is to be signed and notarised.

Both the company registration and purchasing a property in Bulgaria involve operating with company and personal bank accounts and registering your interests in various institutions. It is always best if you can do all the transactions yourself but in many cases foreign property buyers do not have the option to spend weeks in Bulgaria whilst this process is carried out. Therefore we are able to act in your interests using powers of attorney.

Setting up a Company

Citizens of EU countries have the right to own land for residential purposes. 

Foreigners from all other countries are still required to register a Bulgarian company to own land in Bulgaria. Our lawyers will prepare all the documents and undertake the necessary procedures for the company set-up.

Citizens of EU countries will not be allowed to own agricultural land and forests as individuals until 2014.
