Buying a Used Car in Greece

How to buy a used car in Greece, with details on the documents that may be required...

There are a number of websites, magazines and newspapers (mostly in Greek) that advertise used cars for sale in Greece. A secondhand car is called μεταχειρισμενα αυτοκινητα in Greek.

Before buying a car, a buyer can take a used car to a mechanic to be checked (for a small fee). In addition, the buyer should ask the seller for the car's full service records.

Documents required

When buying a secondhand car, the following documents are required for the transfer of ownership and registration:

  • Certified copy of proof of identity of both the buyer and seller
  • Documentation of receipt of payment by the seller (an invoice marked paid)
  • Request for transfer and registration of the car ownership (document Aitisi)
  • Vehicle registration document, certified by the local tax office proving that the annual vehicle tax has been paid
  • Power of attorney, if registration is carried out by a third party
  • Foreign citizens need to provide their Residence Permit (Aδεια παραμονης)
  • Registration fee

The documents are submitted to the local Citizen Service Centre (Κεντρο Εξυπηρετησης Πολιτων - KEP). The buyer will be notified once the documents are ready for collection.
