Summer holidays can give us a taste of what’s out there in other areas of the world, and they actually inspire individuals to sell up and live abroad.
Moving home is always a bit of a headache, and that’s especially the case when you’re moving abroad. Timing has to be perfect. You can’t sell too soon, because it can take quite a bit of money and time to move your furniture and belongs abroad.
In a ideal world you will be able to purchase the property abroad, and then once you’ve moved your stuff across, have new people come into your old house. This is obviously rather difficult, because selling a house can take time, and you may want to snap up your home or apartment in another country sooner rather than later, because somebody else might.
In this situation it is important that you have a reliable advisor and a highly skilled solicitor or legal advisor. They should be able to keep you up to date on the process using simple terminology, so make sure you’re fully prepared for what awaits if you decide to live abroad.
