It’s been a long day. We are exhausted mentally and physically just having purchased our Portuguese property including a few acres of rustic land. We are delighted but equally terrified as whilst signing the papers with the lawyer we were informed that in Portuguese law any adjoining neighbour over the next 12 months can purchase the rustic land from us at the contract price (a very very low number). That would be devastating as we bought both together and one without the other would be worthless to us. I’m not sure what to make of this and how worried to be, but has dampened our celebrations tonight now worrying we could lose everything. Any thoughts or knowledge on this law? Have we misunderstood this? (I hope we have).
