Legal Support

Capital One has a network of experienced lawyers, specialized in the field of real estate and property taxation. Aiming to satisfy and safeguard each of our clients at every stage of the property purchasing/selling procedure, our lawyers secure all the conditions that will fulfill the best possible solution.  


Buyer’s Legal Support

The safety of our buyer is amongst our top priorities. With that in mind, our legal network follows strict Due Diligence processes at the relevant Land Registry in order to confirm that the property is free of encumbrances (mortgages, foreclosures, claims etc) and that it holds valid legal titles.

Our partners can offer:

  • Legal advice related to the property taxation and the exemption from transfer tax.
  • Legal review of the documentation provided by the Seller to the Notary.
  • Second Due Diligence at the relevant Land Registry on the day of signing the contract so as to confirm that the property is still free of encumbrances.
  • Representation by a lawyer the day of the final purchase contract and legal check of the final contract.
  • Legal support at all stages of the conveyance.

Our network also includes experienced Notaries, who undertake the preparation of the contracts in a timely and efficient manner.  


Owner’s Legal Support

The set of documentation needed for a proper conveyance can be quite stressful for the owner.  Our legal partners can support and guide the owner at all the stages of the transaction:

  • Collecting the required documentation and preparing a complete folder for the drafting of the final purchase contract.
  • Representing the owner the day of the contract sign-off and performing the final contract legal check.


Technical Support

A group of experienced engineers and architects is at your disposal, to provide appropriate advice. They are perfectly suited to perform all necessary inspections, investigations with the urban planning authorities, license acquisition, as well as the legalization processes, freeing customers from unnecessary discomfort, high costs and waste of time.



The value of a previously owned property can be significantly enhanced after a total or a partial renovation. Our highly specialized network of engineers will undertake the renovation project, using reliable teams of craftsmen. From layout re-design to final delivery, we can have your premises renovated in accordance to your wants and needs.  


Property Valuation

Estimating the value of real estate is necessary for a variety of activities, including financing, sales listing and investment analysis. For us, determining a property’s asking or purchase price is the most useful application of real estate valuation.

Our team of experts can evaluate your property according its unique features: location, lot size, floor plan, and amenities.


The complexity of the Greek property market, the special fields and range of knowledge and the required continuous professional development by trained property professionals, has led the specialization and the experience to be two significant factors affecting the reliability of a valuation report.


Capital One, based in the principle of offering integrated services in Real Estate, has secured strategic partnership with accredited professionals in order to be able to offer its clients high rated property valuation, management, client representation and technical due diligence services.

In all cases outlined above, the value of the real estate property shall be determined based on the value of the property, or the lease, indicated in the contract of purchase.
