How to receive mortgage in Greece?

Even 650-1000 Euro will have to pay for the legal and engineering validation and 150 Euro for the translation of all documents into Greek. You will also need to pay the registration deposit (usually 0.8% of the amount of the mortgage loan) and to take out insurance to housing.
