There are lots of good lawyers in Crete who can help you to buy your Crete property. Almost all the lawyers in Crete speak English and are experienced in acting for overseas buyers buying property here.

So if you are thinking about buying a Crete property on this beautiful Greek Island, you’ll need a lawyer (solicitor) to guide you through the process.

Check out our Crete Property Guides for property throughout the island.

Themis Greek Goddess of Law

A lawyer (solicitor) registered to practice in Crete is needed for both the buyer and seller.

Your lawyer acts solely on your behalf and will carry out necessary legal surveys, conduct a property title check, and ensure the property is free of legal encumbrances.

Your lawyer will oversee the transfer of monies; and change the ownership of the property into your name.

We have found that lawyers speak very good English (and fluent German, French and Italian too!) and smoothly take you through the buying process. A lawyer will help you find a surveyor, an accountant and acquire a tax number for you if you give them Power of Attorney. (We strongly recommend this.)

Giving a Power of Attorney to your lawyer enables them to complete the sale on your behalf. This is an option frequently taken up by overseas buyers who can't stay in Crete during the buying process.

Your lawyer will acquire and check copies of the property title (contract deed), check outstanding debts and taxes on the property, check the topographic plan, appoint a Public Notary, prepare the purchase contracts, pay the purchase transfer tax, and pay (on your behalf) the associated costs required by Greek law.

A Public Notary is a government official who ensures that the sale is legal and performed in accordance with all necessary regulations.

If you purchasing your Crete property through an estate agent or real estate company they most likely will refer you to a suitable lawyer and will recommend that you use his or her services.

Some people however may prefer to find their own lawyer so that they know that any advice they get is truly independent.
