Portugal: Property rights index
A subcomponent of the Index of Economic Freedom, the property rights index measures the degree to which a countrys laws protect private property rights, and the degree to which its government enforces those laws.
Higher scores are more desirable, i.e. property rights are better protected. Scores are from 0 to 100.
The index also assesses the likelihood that private property will be expropriated and analyzes the independence of the judiciary, the existence of corruption within the judiciary, and the ability of individuals and businesses to enforce contracts.
The Global Property Guide considers protection of property rights as a significant factor affecting the desirability of a residential real estate investment.
Portugal releases the average value of bank evaluations on housing, through the Instituto Nacional de Estatistica. The Bank for International Settlements has mean value, in euro per square meter, of credit evaluations of all dwellings carried out by banks, which originally came from the Banco Portugal.
General economics statistics are available from Instituto Nacional de Estatistica and Banco Portugal.
