Portugal

Moving a business to Portugal!

Moving a business to Portugal!

Postby Lancastar » Tue 3 Nov 2009 23:06 GMT

I have never attempted to use a forum before... if I break a protocol or rule; please forgive me.

I currently have a small specialised business in UK with a 60% Uk and 40% EU market. I'm seriously entertaining relocating me and it - to Portugal. I've had a number of visits to this wonderful country during the past 5 years. I'd value individual’s honest opinions and experiences concerning my thoughts and ideas.

What are the likely problems I will face relocating to Portugal with about 15 tonnes of equipment and possessions?

In an ideal world I'd like to buy a small farm or holding (3 or 4 bed accommodation with about 90sq m of outbuildings for workshops, which are habitable, maybe require modernisation), my budget is very small - the remnants from a divorce. Most of my Portuguese friends live north of Lisbon in a 30km radius and that is the area I would prefer to settle.

I am receiving valuable advice from my Portuguese friends but any advice and words of caution are very welcome --- it all adds to a picture.

What a huge subject.

Here are some pointers that I have picked up along the way.

Don't stick with one estate agent for your viewings.
Set yourself a list of essential requirements and try not to compromise unless the price means that you can afford the things you have compromised on.
Find an independent solicitor or lawyer you can trust.
If you have the time, visit in all weather conditions and times of the day ( for sun)
If you are making big changes to the property, think about access ( you don't want to spend half your day moving material)
Don't pick the first property you see - even if that is your final choice, look at plenty of others to get a comparison.
If you have friends with local knowledge, listen to the information, even if you don't act on it.
Lst but not least - Great Choice - Central Portugal is the place to be!

Thanks for responding Paul, sage advice - and discovering how unfocused some property agents are... worth following.
