Hello all I want to prepare to move to Bulgaria when I retire approx 4 years time (i know I could be dead by then). I have been researching Bulgaria and looking at the views of expats living in Bulgaria. I want to come over and hire a car to take a look at areas that I am interested in. I would initially want to rent somewhere for a few months before buying. Could anyone tell me if a rental for say 6 months would be possible? I want to get a feel for the place and get a chance to talk to people to glean as much information as possible. I also want to keep away from estate agents. I would be grateful for your comments. Many thanks Pam

Hi, I have a house in village Rogozina near Black Sea. It's a bungalow with 3 rooms, large kitchen and a new bathroom. There is a cellar and a big garden. The village is about 20km from Black Sea. I still live in UK, so the house is empty. There are few expats living in the village. Please let me know if you are interested.

Hi, My partner and I are desperate to move to Bulgaria with our children, but the only thing holding us back is.. yes you guessed it... money. We don't own a home in UK nor have a nest egg nor family to supply us with an income while we settle. We would love a little house in a village and be as self sufficient as possible, we don't need all the major luxuries, just a chance to raise our children to learn the value and importance of family. We are both doing a Tefl course but doubt that it would be much use for securing employment over those with higher qualifications and experience. We would be willing to do pretty much anything, but then aren't most people! I would want to learn Bulgarian and enjoy as much of the local culture and tradition as possible. We also have debts in the UK which we would need to account for in terms of continuing to pay them off. If anyone has any ideas at all on how we could make it possible to make the move in the next year we would be extremely grateful!

go to the mayor in a village you like and ask for property to buy,average would be about £ 3.000 but would need work possibly upto £10.000 of work including new kitchen bathroom doors windows roof etc

You say not to buy via Estate Agents. If thats the case how to you find what properties are for sale? I have looked online myself at properties via an estate agent and have seen some 1 and 2 bed apartments fully furnished in Veliko Tarnavo for 25000 Euros to 30000 Euros which I consider to be cheap. What sort of price would I be looking at if I was to buy something like this but not via an Estate Agent?

Hi all, I know this may seem trivial to some but we are moving to a village outside VT this summer and I have a real issue with spiders, give me snakes or rats and I have no problem but spiders are another story! I am concerned more with the house spiders that may turn up rather than the garden sorts. Please can you give me your experiences, any any problems you may have encountered. Thanks, Poppy
TerenceV replied on April 06, 2015 with:
Hi there, I've only just joined so, pleased to meet you. Don't worry too much about spiders there's one really efficient way to keep them away, ask anyone who owns a boat, the pests get everywhere, even Inside knots on the rigging. They're scared stiff of horse-chestnuts, or conkers as we called them as kids. Collect up a few bags full and distribute them generously about the house (or boat) and you'll have no trouble throughout the year. The mechanism is that conkers give off some kind of solvent which destroys their own waxy protection leaving them vunerable to the exterior world. As a point of interest, the beams in church rooves are classically made of chestnut wood for this very same reason, If you're lucky you might find a few old ones laying about left over from last autumn. All the best, Terry V.

I'm a UK citizen. I want to buy a house in rural Bulgaria and move there to live permanently. I'll probably TEFL to supplement my savings. (Possible open a small school for tutoring services.) I'm not sure how to do this. (The visas for EU citizen with property in Bulgaria and entrepreneur, etc.) And advice would be great. Thanks
C2Construction replied on April 06, 2015 with:
I forgot to mention, as a citizen of the EU you do not need any special permission, permit, visa, etc. to live, work, own/buy property, or open a business in Bulgaria. You would have the same rights, and under the law are considered the same as, a Bulgarian citizen.
C2Construction replied on April 06, 2015 with:
Hi, It is very easy to buy a house, and open a business in Bulgaria. However, I caution you to NOT use a real estate agent, internet, or inquire yourself, unless you dont mind paying 100-300% above market value. I am an American expat, married to a Bulgarian woman and we live part time in BG (rest of the year in Prague for my job). I would be happy to give you all information and some advice if you would like, just send me a message and I will give you my contact info. Good luck, Bulgaria an a great place to live and really enjoy life. John
