            After presentation of your file, a company will examine it on behalf of the managing company or the owner. If your file is accepted, the next step will be the signing of the contract.

            A document explaining the important points is obligatorily issued in the event of a real estate transaction, and the law requires that a duly authorized real estate transaction agent perform this explanation orally.
