Legal details

EU-citizens have exactly the same legal status to purchase Austrian property as Austrians themselves. EU-citizens are allowed to take any job inside Austria like American-Green-Card-holders. Every EU-citizen has the legal right for a registered title for his main residential property.

If it is not main residential property every Austrian federal state has its own laws.
