Before we go any further, unless you have extensive knowledge of purchasing property or investment property in the Kingdom, you should seek the assistance of a real estate professional. The small fee incurred for this advice and execution is worth its weight in gold.
Before you purchase ANYTHING, you should conduct an ownership title search. This search will confirm who holds the title referring to the land/property and reveal any mortgages or unknown encumbrances.
Please understand that there can be hidden impediments in transferring the land/property that are not visible on the title search, such as a claim to the land/property from another local.
Also, it is essential to note that the buyer will not receive the original title deed to conduct background research, you will only receive a copy, and the document must be checked to ensure it is recent.
