    Arrange a viewing trip
    We will accompany you throughout the viewing schedule. There is no magic number of apartments that you should see. Sometimes if we have very specific instructions from a buyer we can help them identify the right property after viewing only two or three properties.
  3. 3
    Make an offer and sign a contract
    Once you have found a property/properties which you would like to buy, an offer should be made. We will make the offer to the seller and negotiate on your behalf. If a price is agreed we will arrange a meeting at the office of an English-speaking lawyer. The seller will usually be present at this meeting.
    We work with a number of reputable lawyers. However you can use your own lawyer if you already have one in Hungary.

    Open a bank account in Hungary
    We advise buyers to open a Hungarian bank account. It takes approximately 30 minutes and you only need to show your passport to open an account. We suggest choosing a bank which offers English language telephone and Internet banking facilities so that you can manage your account from your home country. This will be important in the future to receive your rental income every month.
  5. 5
    Return home and transfer the deposit if necessary
    When you arrive home the next step is to transfer the deposit to the lawyer. The amount of deposit usually required is 10% to 15% of the purchase price. You can transfer direct from your bank.
  6. 6
    Let the process run its course
    When buying as an individual all you gonna need is a tax id, this can be arranged by an accountant. The reason you need this is, you gonna have to pay 16% tax after you rental income. In case if you keep the property for yourself, than you do not need this id.

    You may decide to establish a Hungarian company for the purpose of buying your property and there are good reasons for choosing this method. We are able to offer expert advice as to which option would be best suited to your needs.
