Hi Jovan, I did see that link a while back but have been unable to verify the situation in Graz. I did ask the Österreichische Notariatskammer and was advised to speak to a local Notary. I think the first meeting is free. Steiermark does have quite a few localised property laws, so you would be advised to speak to a local Notary or property lawyer. You could also try in this Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/english.styria. For Notaries this might help https://www.notar.at/notarfinder/. In general 3CN’s need prior approval to buy in Austria, with a few exceptions (e.g. married or Civil partner to an Austrian). The process in general is more costly AND they can refuse.
PS: British Citizens with an Article 50 residency permit are treated differently and Steiermark have confirmed that equal treatment to EU/Austrian Nationals apply.
