Buying Antigua Real estate is a fairly straight forward process. The laws governing the acquisition of Antigua real estate are designed not only to encourage but to protect foreign investment after purchase.
As with any real estate transaction you will need to retain the services of a lawyer who will oversee the process and act on your behalf. JHR Caribbean Real Estate has a number of well qualified and efficient lawyers that are waiting to assist you with your purchase.
A lawyer will generally charge 1% to 2% which varies according to the purchase price.
As a non Antiguan purchasing real estate in Antigua you will need to apply for a non-citizens license. This will amount to 5% of the purchase price. A non-citizens license can take up to four months to be granted depending on your legal representation and the speed of the application process.
You will be required to pay a stamp duty which is 2.5% of the purchase price to complete the transaction.
