Reasons for someone’s wish, when the person is not living in Serbia, to acquire real estate in Serbia can be various. Personal needs like the desire to live there, marriage with Serbian citizen, reasons of business nature like new workplace located there, desire to start a business or something else. Rules for the safe purchase of real estate in Serbia are exactly the same as everywhere else, and those should be followed, especially keeping in mind that buying real estate is often a big expense.
The first step is always a choice between available real estates which you can find by searching the internet, by contacting a real estate agency or by contacting law office dealing with that kind of issues. Real estate in Serbia that attracts your attention should always be inspected by your personal presence or presence of someone working for you because pictures can sometimes be misleading. If everything proves suitable, real work is just starting. The most important issue should be the legal status of the real estate. That is perhaps the reason why a law office is most suitable to make your purchase completely safe.
In order to avoid any kind of future problems, real state should be in property of person willing to sell it, without any easement, with all building and use permits… You could check some of this things by yourself, but you cannot do it thoroughly and efficiently like professional, especially in case if the seller is trying to cover up some details. Often, reason for low price of real estate can be unresolved question of ownership, co-ownership, easement, lack of construction permit, case of exceeding construction permit or something else, and while many of these problems can be solved (some actually can’t), you should always bear in mind costs of those solutions. Buying real estate with an unresolved issue, even if you accept the game, is always a gamble and it is not recommended for “try on your own” without the professional opinion. On another hand, if you are desiring a real estate without any legal issues connected to it, you might again need professional help to establish that lack of any faults.
