Buy to (temporarily) rent?

We are not quite ready to move but found an apartment we like (Porto). 

Any land mines if we buy and then rent out (long term, not AirBnB) for a year or two?  Any tax or legal problems turning the property from a rental into our residence?  Thanks.

Hi Jay,

There are quite a few landmines. The long-term lease offers tenants protections that you might not be aware of. 

If you have time check out the webinar The Portugal Company | Expats Portugal i doing at 7:30pm Lisbon time today. Ask Peiter the question. Whats On In Portugal? Expats Portugal Events Calendar
