The first step with any property a real estate agency in the Algarve should verify are the legalities and registration of the property. Basically to verify what is there actually all exists and appears on the legal documents of the property. As simple as it might sound often this is not the case and anything from not or incorrect registered annexes, pools, garages, etc etc can appear.

Once documents have all been checked and cleared a mediation contract between real estate agency and vendor needs to be drawn up, by law.
