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.

Local agents want to sell a property, but you must remember they are working for the seller, even though you will pay them a commission for the purchase. In Austria, both the seller and the buyer pay a 3% + vat commission.

With our property consultancy services, we can, as your consultants, get all the necessary information and 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 selling agent!

If you are considering to buy a property in Austria, we can make a full check with the local authorities that it is legally registered and it can be used for the purpose you want, such as holiday home, for private use, holiday rental or to long term let.
