I (and my wife) had decided to buy an apartment in Vienna’s 7th district. Stylish but affordable, it was exactly the apartment (we thought) to attract young but prosperous tenants to swell our bank balance.
Everything went fine, until we got the lawyer’s bill. Legal charges for the conveyance of an apartment costing €180,000: €10,000. Ouch!
This led us to reflect – more or less, we were flying blind. We had just gone ahead. It was (of course) crazy. But we realized too that tens of thousands of people are in the same position. So we sat down and thought: What should we have known? This web site is the result.
