The property related information on this site is intended as a guide only. All property details and property particulars are deemed to be correct, but we cannot be held responsible for any errors, omissions and inaccuracies. Proper legal advice should be sought in all matters. The information contained here may be subject to change without prior notice.


> Legal Restrictions
EU citizens are authorised by law to own properties in all areas of Greece. Restrictions apply only to non-EU citizens who wish to purchase property in border areas. Crete is one such area, and any non-EU citizens need to apply to the Ministry of Defence to be granted authorisation.

> Preliminary Agreement
A 10% deposit on the purchase price is usually required to secure a property. This is payable on signing the first agreement, containing the names and details of the parties, the description of the property, the price, method of payment, and any general conditions negotiated by either party.
After signing, if the Purchaser subsequently declines to proceed, he or she will lose their deposit. As indemnity to the Purchaser, should the Vendor subsequently decline to sell he or she is obliged to pay a sum equal to the deposit to the Purchaser, who will in addition receive back the original deposit paid. In the case of a very cheap property this agreement is sometimes foregone in favour of proceeding straight to an exchange of contract.
When the appointed Lawyer has received the deposit, he will hold the deposit in a customer account until a land title search has been completed and a positive result reported to CRETAN RESIDENCES .If the client is not able to be present in Crete at any stage, he/she can agree to a power of attorney, giving the Lawyer authorization to act on his behalf. This power of attorney is arranged in front of a Notary Public.
It can also be arranged via the Greek Consulate in the client,s country of residence.
Power of attorney can be cancelled at any time upon request by the client, at any Notary Public in Greece or via the Greek Consulate.

> Exchange of Contract & Purchase
This is executed before a Public Notary with a lawyer representing each party. All appropriate tax papers and deeds must first be in order for the Public Notary to authorise the sale and prepare the contract for signature.
The lawyer acting for the Purchaser will carry out searches with the Land Registry beforehand to ensure that a clean title to the property will be obtained, and will assist in fixing the 'assessed' value of the property.

> CRETAN RESIDENCES will also oversee this process - an important factor, as the 'assessed' value is generally lower than the actual price. Registration at the Land Registry, which is held immediately after completion of contracts, is the definite and irrevocable proof that the Purchaser now owns the property.
