It's very common, it happened to me 2 or 3 times. The process is simple, you either love the farm and buy it anyway or you dont, i didnt as there needs to be ethics... always check land size in google and the name of the owners of the farm in the public office.This is quick. Be carefull with the local real estates as they are less caring with this matter.
Is it common that land is not in the correct name or size or registration? If so, what is the process?

Sure i can, my father
Could anyone recommend a good lawyer/solicitor for the Coimbra or Castelo Branco area that we could meet with in June?
