What is the biggest mistake you could make when buying property in a foreign country? Why pay for an independent lawyer when you're already using a notary? Viewing trips – do they really take much planning? Exactly how can exchange rates affect your buying power abroad?
Powerful questions like these will be tackled at the A Place in the Sun Live show this month, when international property experts, including Richard Way of The Overseas Guides Company, take centre stage for a seminar about the right way to buy a home abroad.
"These free seminars are an ideal way for property-buyers to get free advice and ask any niggling questions – and we all have them – about an overseas purchase," said Richard Way, Editor at the Overseas Guides Company. "Deciding to spend your life savings on a home abroad can be as daunting as it is exciting, so it's incredibly important to get reliable, first-hand information and meet the right people from the outset. Bringing together experts from different fields of the international property industry creates the perfect environment for buyers to do just that and do invaluable research."
A Place in the Sun Live takes place from 28th-30th March at Olympia in Kensington, London. The "How to buy overseas property the right way" seminar, featuring Richard Way and other trusted overseas property experts, will take place on all three days of the event in the exhibition's central hub, where visitors will also be able to watch live interviews with the presenters of the Channel 4 A Place in the Sun TV series.
"The Overseas Guides Company will be shining the spotlight on Spain at this year's show, complementing the seminars by bringing together experts from the Spain Buying Guide and offering free, info-packed leaflets and guides to anyone who registers on our stand at the exhibition," continued Richard Way. "We'll have literature on buying safely, how to get the most from a viewing trip, currency exchange and more. And along with members of our knowledgeable resource team, visitors can come and chat to our recommended bi-lingual Spanish lawyer, Raquel Perez, who has helped hundreds of British people purchase safely in Spain."
