Monique & Herman De Winter – Pangalochori, Crete

Posted by Elxis on 21/12/2020

Acquiring a house in Greece is not an easy task. In any case, it is a lot more complicated than we are used to in Belgium. Not only because the language is usually a problem, but also because the administrative and legal customs differ considerably from ours. Acquiring a house in Greece requires a certain amount of perseverance.

It becomes even more delicate for those, like me, who have a career as a self-employed architect behind them and who, from that experience, have an extra critical view of the housing on offer, as a result of which the decision to actually buy a house has been postponed for a long time.

The Gordian knot was cut in the end when we met the ELXIS agency that offered a ten year old, favourably located house in Crete that met our requirements, both technically and financially.

After we had rented the house for a short period (try before you buy!) and my wife and I decided to buy it, the purchase procedure was initiated by the agency and was completed correctly and to our great satisfaction. The fact that the managers of ELXIS are both Greek, a lawyer and a sworn translator, and also have an impeccable command of Dutch, was certainly of inestimable importance.
