When we asked expats what advice they would give a foreigner before buying a property in China, they said...

"It is important to understand the local property market and do extensive research before making any decisions about purchasing property in China. It is advisable to assess the location and desirability of the property, as well as its physical condition and any specific costs associated with its ownership. It is also important to understand the local laws and regulations governing the purchase and ownership of property. It is also recommended to get a qualified lawyer or legal consultant to ensure full understanding of the legal matters related to the purchase of property. Finally, it is important to ensure that any sale or purchase agreement fully protects your rights as a buyer, and understand any tax implications associated with the purchase," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to China.
