At first glance buying property in the USA may seem similar to buying property in other common law countries such as Ireland and the UK, and seems very different from civil law countries like France or Spain. Though while there are more similarities with common law countries, each system has its own unique attributes, and you’d be well advised to get familiar with the terminology and process. This page gives you a brief overview on the basic process, but by no means exhaustive. For more detail speak with one of our licensed realtors or consult a lawyer for any legal questions.
