First of all, you will have to make sure that you can buy real estate in Romania. For example, do you have Romanian residency or Romanian fiscal number?
Secondly, I frequently receive emails such as: “I am currently looking to purchase an apartment in Bucharest. Seeking for legal support during all the process and registration myself as an owner over all the necessary institutions. I need to assume all the paperwork and documentation is legal and clear, need support to buy and register real estate on my name.”
I am happy to notice that all these people who contact me are aware that after they found the right apartment at the right price, the next step is that a specialist looks over the documentation of the property.
So, after you’ve decided on the property worth buying, request the seller, in the first stage, the following most important documents to check, in copy: ownership title and proof of registration in the land registry.
If these documents check out, we can move on and request the full necessary documentation for buying.
I am attorney at law Ionel Vacarescu and if you need legal support during all the process of real estate acquisition you can drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
