as the property values can only but appreciate over time. In an era of such global uncertainty, HNW families seek this type of stability and value this stability not only on their portfolios but on their quality of life.

What is special about San Lorenzo North? Artur: It will for sure be the most exclusive, quiet and peaceful neighbourhood in the resort after it is fully consolidated with construction. The fact that you have creative freedom to design the home of your dreams in such an exclusive location really adds an intangible value to each project that is created there. 25


REAL ESTATE QUINTA DO LAGO

What are the best things about life in the Algarve? Samantha: The Algarve is so profusely diverse in nature’s landscapes (very visible on the over 200 km of coast), but also on culture and history. The sunlight you get here is unlike other places I’ve visited; it is very special. The food is incredible in both flavour and freshness. Being a local, I am proud to call this my home and very happy to share it with those who value it. Jaan-Claire: For me, it’s the hospitality of the locals and the outdoor lifestyle that’s on offer. There’s a great choice of restaurants and quality fish and veg markets, and wonderful places to discover on walks in the hills or even catching a boat to a remote island.

What are families looking for in Quinta do Lago? Samantha: More than a safe and well-maintained holiday location, where everything is planned for your enjoyment, Quinta do Lago offers a very discreet, low-key sense of luxury; there is always an activity or more for each of the family members to go out and enjoy their favourite Quinta experience. 26

Artur: One of the really special things about life in Quinta do Lago is how much children get out of it; from the sports clubs at The Campus and Golf Academy, to family events like Movies in the Park, it’s no surprise when we hear parents say their kids ask to return year after year, and, as they grow up, the memories of their childhood moments spent here are still so precious. Besides families, who else is buying in Quinta do Lago in 2021? Samantha: Quinta do Lago’s family-friendly feeling has attracted both families and some sharp property investors over its 5 decades of existence, who have recognised the value and appreciation that can arise from a well-planned property development in the heart of a community.

FACT CHECK: INCENTIVES & RESIDENCY IN THE ALGARVE

NON-HABITUAL TAX RESIDENCY The Golden Visa may also continue to be combined with the Non-Habitual Tax Resident status (NHR), which offers a set of tax advantages for foreign sourced income. In order to benefit from the NHR status, the applicant must fulfil the preconditions to be deemed a tax resident in Portugal. These conditions are that the applicant must be physically present in the country for more than 183 days in any given period of 12 months, and have a dwelling available in Portugal in such conditions that it may be assumed that is the primary residency. Under this regime, pensions may be subject to a 10% reduced tax rate and professionals performing high sourced salaries or subject to a 20% reduced flat tax rate on Portuguese sourced salaries.

BEYOND BREXIT It’s been a semester since the United Kingdom is no longer part of the European Union, so it is now the perfect occasion to review the major alterations and consequences imposed by the withdrawal agreement. During the first seven months of this year, the British citizens continued to be particularly interested in living and buying a property in Portugal and the Portuguese Government has been creating innovative solutions to facilitate the process. For British citizens, Portugal offered two alternative strategies: 1. For citizens who already lived in Portugal before the end of 2020 (that is, until the withdrawal agreement came into force), a simplified procedure was created, allowing British citizens to request the exchange of their registration certificate of the Union citizen for new residence permits; 2. For citizens who did not live in Portugal before the end of 2020, it is now required to have a visa or a residence permit, in order to benefit from the same privileges of the EU citizens. 93
