  • The Law

Another issue you might face on this journey comes from the mighty fist of the law. In each and every country, you’ll find different laws regarding real estate.

If you plan to drive, you will have to learn a new set of rules to help you on the road. It could take some time to adapt your habits and behaviors to match your new home, and you may not even realize you’re breaking the law in some areas. But, this area still needs to be thought about.
