How to Buy Property in Antigua and Barbuda
The buying process is fairly straightforward and once you have completed on your property, your lawyer must register the transfer at the local land office.
Here’s the rundown on what you pay as a buyer: an Alien Landholding License (5 per cent of the purchase price), legal fees (1 per cent), stamp duty (2.5 per cent), so budget for about 9 per cent of the purchase price for your buying costs.
When you sell, you’ll need to add about 14.5 per cent of the sales price to cover costs
Before buying in Antigua, you should do an independent structural and land survey on the property to ensure the structural integrity of the property and ensure the property boundary lines are correct.
