real estate in Greece
A deposit of 10-30% (normally 10%) is paid after an agreement to buy is signed
which should include buying price details and due completion date, which varies
but can be done in under a month. The balance of the purchase price is payable
on signing the purchase deed before a public notary in Greece. The notary will
check that your property has the clear title before completing the sale agreement.
They will charge around 1-2% of the property value to do this.
