I think this book is an essential buy if you plan to buy a place in Portugal.
It is clearly written without much fluff.
I have one problem with it though.
When I read the version I bough, many of the case studies are out of date. They were made before the global financial crisis.
Some of the case study links are not in business or not in business in the same way as they were.
I think an update of case studies would do this book a great service, about the difficulties, challenges and even successes of buying and surviving in Portugal post crisis!

The laws and red tape in Portugal are a nightmare, and many folks are too trusting and believe what they are told without finding out the answers for themselves. We did have luck on our side, but would definitely have liked the advised and easy to follow guidelines sets out in this books. I purchased the first edition too!

This is a definate must read for anyone thinking of buying in Portugal.

I bought this book out of curiousity. For anyone seriously thinking about moving to Portugal I would recommend it highly. It's full of important information, and also provides the reader with useful website addresses for sites that are obviously a must to read before making a decision. I also found the case studies interesting, although I didn't recognise myself in any of them. However, the book is written in a very practical and no-nonsense way - an essential buy before taking the plunge.

With laws changing all the time it's great to see an update to the original version. This book is an absolute must for all potential news owners in Portugal. The in depth detail will stop you making many of the mistakes people before you have made.

As the title suggests, this book is about buying property in Portugal, but it also goes further, into renting and selling. Most is on buying, where you are guided step by step. The author really gets to grips with the various issues of buying property in the country, and the book is full of helpful tips on how to avoid potential pitfalls. The book is packed with information and advice and is extremely useful.
