Independent Legal Advice & Translation Services
EXPERT LEGAL ADVICE
If and when you decide to purchase a property whether it’s in the UK or overseas it is advisable you seek expert legal advice and instruct an Independent Lawyer.
It’s advisable that your Lawyer should have local knowledge and can converse in both your language and the local language.
A Lawyer will carry out numerous checks to ensure your chosen property and land is indeed owned by the person/developer selling it and the property/development has been marketed correctly. The Lawyer will also ensure that there are no undeclared debts owing on the property and that all service bills and taxes are paid up to date.
Using a lawyer safeguards your investment and means that when you receive ownership of your property you will not inherit any outstanding debts or issues.
Your Lawyer will also advise and inform you on tax implications, i.e. purchase tax, capital gain, income tax on rental properties and inheritance tax. Taxation advice is extremely important when purchasing a property.
Cyan and our partners can recommend certified Independent Lawyers in different countries but this has to be your decision when choosing your legal representative.
INDEPENDENT TRANSLATION & INTERPRETING SERVICES
If you don’t have a good understanding of the language of the country in which you’re intending to buy we recommend that you get all contracts and relevant documentation translated by an independent translator and if required an interpreter accompanies you to all meetings.
