- Book-keeping and tax – if you are obtaining any income from your property, you are advised to have the correct records and returns compiled professionally; failure to do so and to pay any resultant tax in the country concerned may create big problems for the future;

- Furniture packs – if you are buying a new property, you will need to furnish and equip it; some of our projects are sold fully furnished, in other cases, the developer will introduce you to a supplier, where you can choose an entire pack from different price levels; otherwise, let us know and we should be able to organise this for you.
- Interior design – in many countries, we have contacts with professional interior design consultants so, if you are considering a make-over for your existing property or require your own taste for a new one, let us know and we will see if we can help; the same may be true of landscape design.
- Building works – in any country, it can be a problem to find a reliable and reputable builder who will finish the required work on time and to a professional standard, especially if there is a language barrier; if you need help, we will be able to contact our agents or developers with a view to providing you with suitable recommendations.
