Purchase of residential and other real estate in Greece, Germany and Europe wide

Have you finally found the penthouse you’ve been searching for in the center of Athens or the detached house with swimming pool in the suburbs? Perhaps you have been planning for some time to own your own villa on Santorini or Mykonos, or buy a piece of land in the Peloponnese to build a small guesthouse? Maybe you want to sell the property that you inherited in Greece and use the proceeds to purchase an apartment in Germany, but you would like to be represented by the same firm in both countries?

At AP & Generalis we offer the unique advantages of single representation by lawyers who are licensed to practice in both Greece and Germany and are very familiar with the real estate market in both countries.

The particularities of island properties, as well as real estate in the different regions of mainland Greece, call for specialist local knowledge during the course of any legal representation. Our Real Estate department team, comprising six colleagues specialized in real estate law, together with our associated lawyers in the largest Greek cites and islands, ensure the smooth completion of any property transaction anywhere in Greece.

In addition, from our offices in Berlin we represent mainly foreign clients in the purchase or sale of residential and commercial properties in the city, as well as during the subsequent drafting of residential or commercial lease agreements. If you wish, we can arrange face-to-face meetings in Berlin to discuss aspects of Greek real estate law which are relevant to your individual matter. And at our associated Notarial Office in Berlin (www.rain-annette-krause-thiel.de/), you can sign the notarial powers of attorney required for the purchase or sale of property in Greece.

You will find useful information and gain an initial picture of the process of purchasing a house, apartment or land in Greece in our information pamphlet on “Real estate purchases in Greece”. There you will find all the necessary information about the various steps involved, from the choice of the right property to the procedural details of the purchase contract, as well as the usual incidental expenses.

Further information about the services provided by our law firm which relate to the purchase or sale of property in Greece is also available in the “Services” section of our website, in the category “Real Estate in Greece”. 

The experienced team of AP & Generalis are at your disposal at any time, ready to provide their specialist and bespoke advice at our offices in Athens and Berlin, and of course by telephone or video conferencing (Teams, Zoom, Skype).
