    I agree with your points, and would add an 11th: employ a reliable notary public, best chosen by word-of-mouth recommendation. His/her job is to check that all the paperwork is complete and correct. If there is something illegal or mistaken in there, once you have signed the contract it becomes your problem, e.g. outstanding debts of the seller with the property offered as security, and similar. My notary saved my life savings when I was about to close such a fatally flawed deal.

      Hi Jef,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes a notary is necessary, but you’ll need to hire one for the rogito, the actual handover, anyway and he or she is obliged to do all checks beforehand so..
