Default English Speaking Lawyer You can Trust

Hi,

The title says it all. I have heard more than 1 or 2 scare stories on this subject.

I am looking to buy a property in the Hurghada area. Can anyone recommend a lawyer that will act on my behalf with integrity, honesty and not try to rip you off.

I understand that the contract has to be in both Ararbic and English, etc.

I have tried the British Embassy site and could not open the link to English speakinh lawyers.

Help is appreciated.

Hi Soulie,

Welcome to the forum.

Make sure to choose a lawyer before you put a deposit to check the due diligence of the property you are thinking of buying. The lawyer will check the legal papers on the property, if there is something wrong and he recommends you not to buy there, you don't want to be in a position to be fighting for your deposit back.

Of course there are may scare stories out there, do your homework on the place you are looking to buy into also. There are good developers and not such good ones, but the bad experiences almost always get talked about publicly. There are also many happy stories out there. There is no property without risk, you just have to reduce the risk where possible.

You are half right about the contract. It is not necessary for the contract to be written in English, but it is mandatory for it to be in Arabic. The English part of a contract is merely a translation for guidance purposes only. Contracts can also be issued in Arabic/Italian or Arabic/Russian or whatever is required by the purchaser.

Good luck in your purchase and feel free to ask me any questions you are unsure of.

Just to throw a spanner in the works, I may also recommend you try Edgebridge Law Firm. Zeiad (based in Sharm) has been my lawyer for a number of years and they have an office in Hurghada too. You can email them on info@edgebridgelawfirm.com.

Andy, try to calm down. If you wish to be negative, do it in a more polite and constructive way rather than letting your emotions and obvious problems get the better of you
