Background checks on property and seller before transferring the money, choosing an optimal transaction structure and further tax scheme, including all essential conditions in a contract taking into account the specifics of Georgian legislation, taking care of the post-sale procedures, such as reconstruction of an object, changing the category of land, conclusion of a lease agreement, etc. – these are the issues that every serious investor thinks about in advance.
