    only physically on a jaunt through the Baltics a few years ago. Why do you mention Vilnius in particular?

    Have you looked at Vilnius in Lithuania?

    Ah well.. guess it comes down to what you're familiar with as much as any potential market shifts.

    JK0 got a link to anything to verify that?

    Better than Chisinau anyway ;-)
    I am surprised you think Jordan may be a better option. I think it is too near to the Israel/Palestine conflight to be safe for investing.

    That's my point!

    Many properties that have been demolished actually had planning permission. No amount of checking would have indicated otherwise.

    Where we spend our holidays would have no bearing on this. We're not the kind of people who go back to the same place twice so the idea of staying in our "holiday home" doesn't appeal. This would be purely for yield to supplement retirement income.

    It would depend on any deal (or not...) struck with the EU. For which, after only 2 years, the government have merely produced a rough brief draft of what they'll - probably - ask the EU for.

    Bunch of disorganized, incompetent , clowns.

    Depends on where in the EU, if you speak/read the language, and what local property laws are (I know that Spain and France have some quirks that I would not be happy with).
