BUY ME FOREST
HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE DEAL WITHOUT GOING IN CIRCLES.
In short, being a solvent person is not enough. To get a chance to acquire ownership of the forest land in Austria, you need:
to show origin (both business and businessman).
to have the citizenship of one of the European countries or the Austrian residence permit
to prove that you will keep your personal forest open to all visitors at any time of the day or night and, moreover,
to prove that running of your business will not reduce the population of deer, pheasants, hares, and wild boars and, above all, you will rejuvenate the forest regularly.
If the first stage of the legal quest is passed, you need to get permission from the authorities, who at this very moment will start finding out if any of the local residents have a more urgent need for forest land than you – the ready-made buyer.
