The purchase of international real estate

The fiscal and legal organisation

On the legal and fiscal levels, it is also important to be sufficiently informed about the options and obligations as a buyer. Where do you pay how much in registration fees? Is the real estate agent’s commission charged to you and do you have to pay purchase tax to the local authorities? And of course, it is also important to know if you can borrow money in Belgium for an international real estate investment, or how much tax will be charged if it is rented out. These are all things for which Sire will provide you with advise and support.

Thanks to Sire, you can start your adventure safe and carefree: you will have a complete file, created and aligned with your individual wishes and needs.

Important

The role of the notary varies from country to country and is not equally developed everywhere. It is therefore very important that you have a detailed report of the property before you sign anything. Sire can assist you in this.

Administration and deposit

What applications must be submitted where, what contact persons must be addressed and where is the title deed deposited? It is a little different for every country. Fortunately, you will have Sire’s expertise and network available to you for a successful purchase.
