Should I use UK based solicitor or Bulgarian?

Hello all!
My husband and I are buying a house to live in, in Chirpan.
How did you go about with the legal stuff - did you use a Bulgarian solicitor to do the conveyancing and go out yourself to sign documents or did you use a UK based solicitor?
I would be grateful to hear what your opinion is on both options
many thanks Claire

Hi, and welcome. :-)

I've never bought a house in Bulgaria (in fact, I've never been to Bulgaria), so I couldn't comment directly on that experience. But I'd be surprised if there were many (if any) UK-based solicitors with enough expertise in Bulgarian law - and the Bulgarian language - to be able to offer conveyancing services in Bulgaria. It's unusual for lawyers based in one country to practise in another.

If a buyer wants a solicitor look at the UK Embassy website in Bulgaria.
It has a list of English speaking solicitors. I should think that the one's on that site are registered.
