Antigua Estates will guide and help you with Government Stamp Duty or transfer tax: Buyer pays 2.5% and the seller pays 7.5%. As a non Antiguan purchasing real estate in Antigua you will need to apply for a non-citizens license to purchase property. The cost amounts to 5% of the property value. This document may take three months to issue.
Property Tax is considered low and based upon local rental values. For example: From US $300 a year for a three bedroom house. Legal costs are 1 to 2% depending on value. Most Properties are Freehold.
We highly recommend that you consult the relevant professionals prior to entering in to any contract. Antigua Estates will be happy to advise you of suitable qualified professionals like Bank Managers, Surveyors, Lawyers and Architects.
