Austria is a member of the EEC.
Prior to membership of the EEC there were numerous local council rules that often prevented foreigners from buying property.
Whilst these rules no longer apply to European citizens many councils still prefer their approval to be sought by the appropriate "Grundverkehrsbehörde" - part of the local council.
Whilst arguably such approval is no longer required it is best to be courteous and have your Lawyer comply. Remember that most towns are very small and the local major is someone you would like to keep on Good terms with.
Apart from these considerations EEC citizens will find buying property in Austria orderly, efficient and quick.
