  • A good, trustworthy agent – this is the most important ingredient in a successful property purchase; finding the right estate agent for you will make sure that you do not waste time looking at properties that are not suitable for you.
  • An independent solicitor – it’s essential to have someone on your side for the often lengthy and complex process of purchasing a property in another country.
