The process could include amongst others the following matters:
- Filing for N.I.E. documents and notary documents
- Checking ownership data, possible burdens, and unpaid, taxes or community or other fees and building licenses
- Preparing or checking the validity in pre- and sales contracts
- Title Deeds
- Opening of a local bank account for expenses including taxes
- Opening of a bank account for the payment of the property
- Negotiating with the bank for mortgages
- Water-, electricity and other contracts
- Specific insurances
- Registration of the property in the name of the new owner
