It is easy to be tempted and want to invest in an Austrian property whilst on a ski holiday…snow, gluwein, log fires, apres ski…but what about the realities of a property purchase and owning property in Austria.
Legally all Purchase contracts must be in German language as that is the law. But It is surprising the number of people who purchase a property with no ‘English translation’ of the Purchase contract! You would not buy a property in UK, without fully understanding all the detail in the contract!
Nor would you make an offer to buy a property in UK unless you had your finance in place. It is the same in Austria! You need to have your finance in place or agreed before making an offer for that lovely chalet or ski apartment. For Mortgage and financing advice.
We get many emails and phone calls from people who have bought their dream ski property, only to find later there are rules that prevent them from using it as they require….of course as they have aleady signed for the property, there is little we can do for them! So, we cannot re-iterate enough, that you should always have a translation of the purchase contract and that you fully understand what you are buying before signing. Remember mistakes can be very expensive! We are here to chat and guide you, to keep you from the pitfalls. We offer a virtual consultancy service precisely for this reason.
Conflict of interest?
Estate agents in Austria have two fee charges. One to the seller and one to the buyer. Both are 3% + vat. We work alongside many of our Estate agent colleagues in Austria and we can offer our clients some choices from their property lists. Local agents want to sell property. But you must remember they are working mainly for the seller, who has signed a contract for them to do so. Even though you will also pay them an equal amount of commission for your purchase!. With our property advisor/consultancy services, we work for you our client and can, as your advisors/consultants, get all the necessary information. And we can negotiate for you, to ensure the best purchase price as we work for you. It costs no extra, as you then pay us instead of the estate agent!
