I assume, you don't have any legal papers from the Polish court yet (no, I don't mean the will your Grandfather left). You have to get Postanowienie o Nabyciu Spadku from the Polish court where all beneficiaries will be named.
We are doing the paperwork for at least two years now - our first intention was to transfer the apartment to my mother as long as my grandfather was still alive, unfortunately the court has already opened a case after my grandmother died in 2009...
Its horrible how many documents you have to provide in Poland, we have still to go zu the ZUS, PZU, urzad skarbowy, urzad cywilny and a few other. I know that we wont be able to do anything in the nearest future (like 6 months or so), but getting some information as soon as possible might be helpful to make a tough decision.
What bothers me most, is the growing unfriendliness towards foreigners - people try to scam you whenever its possible, example: at the parking strzezony I am asked to pay different rates every time I go there, varying from PLN30 to PLN40 a night - my uncle never pays more than 20.
From that point of view I am not really interested in owning property in Poland, but selling for a low price looks like a bad idea to me. We dont need the money and for the sale price we would not find a decent piece of property here in Germany without taking out a loan.
So far I want to thank everybody for their ideas and comments!
Here is a link with prices of flats next to sky tower
Thank you for the link, this website has some apartments pretty similar to the one we own, but the sqm-prices are pretty wide.
Why wuld you loose money through currency conversion?
First of all the conversion rate PLN-EUR is not as good as it was in the past, we would have to pay a conversion fee and I guess the money transfer to our country would be connected to more paperwork (money laundering, maybe taxes...)
