Overview


Looking for a guide to the practicalities of living in Portugal? Whether you need to know how to find a plumber, what the câmara is there for, or how to get permission to renovate, this practical illustrated book is for you. And its accompanying CD gives you all the language skills you need to communicate with the locals. Every home owner has to go through the process of searching for property and buying it; most new and existing owners will be renovating or redecorating at some point and this will involve dealing with tradesmen and/or suppliers. For this, these homebuyers will need to understand at least the basics of Portuguese property law, house construction, building, plumbing, electrical systems etc, and they need to know not only the words but how the systems work. Living in Portugal gives the explanations and vocabulary for each aspect of finding, buying, renovating and living in a house in Portugal. In addition to approximately 120 labeled illustrations, the book has a CD which gives the pronunciation and practice of the necessary vocabulary.
