1 / Due Diligence of Property

Before finalizing any property purchase, it is essential to conduct a thorough due diligence process. Our legal experts will meticulously examine the property's documentation, ensuring that there are no hidden liabilities or legal issues that could potentially affect your investment. Your lawyer will provide you with a comprehensive report, giving you the confidence and peace of mind to proceed with your purchase.

2 / Power of Attorney Representation

If you are unable to be physically present during the purchasing process, your solicitor offers the convenience of power of attorney representation. This means that you can designate a trusted individual to act on your behalf, enabling the completion of legal procedures and transactions even if you are abroad.

3 / NIF (Portuguese Tax Identification Number)

To purchase property and conduct various financial transactions in Portugal, including opening bank accounts and obtaining utility services, a Portuguese Tax Identification Number (NIF) is required. A lawyer will assist you in obtaining your NIF, simplifying the process, and handling all the necessary paperwork.

4 / Visa Assistance

If you are a non-EU citizen, a legal professional can help you navigate the visa application process, providing guidance on the specific visa category that aligns with your goals, be it a Golden Visa, a D7 Visa (Passive Income Visa), or other relevant visa options.

5 / Residency and Non-Habitual Resident (NHR) Status

If you are interested in establishing residency in Portugal, a lawyer will guide you through the process, helping you obtain a residence permit and ensure compliance with all residency requirements. Moreover, for eligible applicants, they can assist with obtaining Non-Habitual Resident (NHR) status, which offers significant tax benefits to qualifying expatriates for a period of ten years.
