Advice Buying Properties For Sale Latvia Real Estate Property Buyers Guide



You have found a Latvia property you wish to purchase what next?

Latvia Property Buyer's Guide explains the legal fees, legal procedures, purchase taxes and mortgage procedure.
Purchasing property in Latvia.

Latvia propertyThe good news now is that foreigners rarely get duped when buying property in Latvia, a member of the European Union.
The procedure of property purchase in Latvia isn't as rigid as in the older countries, it is relatively straightforward.
Unlike other countries where an asking price can be a starting figure in the Baltic States the asking Latvia property price is usually very close to the selling price if not the actual price itself.
There is a building boom in the Baltic States with estimates of some 3000 properties per year needed to keep up with demand; with so much property growth going on there isn't much room to haggle.
Your Latvia property agent will assist you with finding your ideal Latvia property, he will know what properties are for sale and with his knowledge of the Latvia property market, and you will avoid any surprises. i.e. if you purchase a property in a city that property may be under a National Heritage protection which limits what improvements can be made.
If purchasing a property in the countryside beware:
There are laws which prohibit construction on riverbanks and lakeshores. If not aware of any of these, the property purchase price will only be the beginning of your investment.
Your agent will assist you in getting you a property expert to look over the structure, this is important for both new and old properties.
The need to know the condition of an older property is obvious. And with new property, your property expert will confirm that everything has been constructed as it should be and as per the plans.
In Latvia a 2 year guarantee is given although not the 10 years we are used to, it's better than nothing, and adds some comfort to property purchase.

Costs of purchasing property in Latvia
The public Notary plays a significant part in property purchase, their fees are fixed by the state and vary between one half to a full one percent of the purchase price and are the main cost of property purchase.
In all countries ask questions about state taxes on the property purchase, property taxes, and land registration costs.
And if any vat taxes (18% in all Baltic States) are incurred they should always be included in the selling price.
In Latvia property taxes are 1.5% of the property value assigned by the state; this is always lower than the market value.
