Hi all, just joined the conversation. We bought a ‘Fereinhaus’ in Salzburgerland 2013 and registered it as our ‘Hauptwohnsitz’ 20/1/20. Following the sale of our UK property in December ‘20 we moved to live permanently in the Austria. We are now looking for a larger house, but are being told by our Notar that we cannot buy another as our ‘Hauptwohnsitz’ because Salzburgerland is still ‘work in progress’ as you state regarding ratifying the purchase of main residences for non EU Brits. Does anyone have an update on this, or should we contact the Embassy directly ?
