Hello. Am hoping that someone may be able to point me in the right direction, I am looking to buy a detached property in Debno (Zachodniopomorskie) ... as I have some work commitments between Berlin and Szczecin, next couple of years ongoing.

Are there any particular property websites people can recommend, or any insight into how rural property sales would be really appreciated, I was driving through and didn't see any estate agents :(

We bought earlier this year - initially found details of the house through otodom.
Watch out for (a) border zone (foreigners can't buy), (b) land registered as agricultural (same) (c) costs on purchase include agent's commission (buyer and seller both pay a commission) and (d) VAT on new builds as the price listed in an ad may not include the VAT.

There are agents, lots of them, and if you find a property you're interested in on otodom, you'll also have the agent's details on the property's listing page.

Many thanks for that - yes I was going to puchase it and put under the deed name of my Polish G/F - figured more logical, as I don't have a scoobies on local legislation/dos and don't. Am loathe to rent - so figured if am around for couple of years makes sense to buy.

That is a stormingly bad idea.

Hi there. I purchased my property 2 years ago now and with easy. No real problems. There are a few web sites that you can look at properties, without invoking an agent. I found them to be a waste of time and money. I will get back to you with the sites.

You do understand of course, that if you break up with your girlfriend you will NOT have a claim on the house. But I am sure, that you trust your girlfriend and that such a situation will never arise.

I'm with Harry - for goodness sake protect yourself! "Putting x in another person's name" is either gifting the asset to the other person or, if you try to unscramble it in the event of later dispute, having to start from admitting having committed fraud at the time of purchase ("yes, I know it was bought in her name, but really it's mine" does not wash, or at the very least is a rocky place to start).

FYI, the agent and our avocat kept us right on Polish law.

Can I be your girlfriend? I look quite passable in a blonde wig and I have small hands so nobody will know.

Where / How to look.

Put 'nieruchomosci Zachodniopomorskie' into your search engine or 'nieruchomosci Szczecin' that will bring up loads of property websites. Ive hyperlinked those search terms so just clicking them will take you to Google results page.

Once your on a website on the drop down menus you need sprzedaz which means for sale and dom which mean house, you can also insert size, price etc... Happy house hunting.
