Buying Process ↓
The buying process of Bulgarian property usually takes between 1 and 2 months.

1. Viewing Fee: We charge 20 eurocent per km refundable in case of eventual completion of a deal within 6 months. For more than five consecutive days of property viewing a volume discount will apply to the viewing fee.

2. Company Registration Fee: EUR 200 (not necessary for citizens of EU/EEA). Foreign citizens cannot purchase land in Bulgaria. Instead, they are supposed to register a company that can possess the property. This is the most common legal method to enable foreign citizens to purchase land. The fee includes all court and notary taxes, lawyer taxes, translations, etc . Company registration fee is NOT required for properties without adjoining land and for EU/EEA citizens!

Important notice: From 01/01/2012 EU physical and legal persons are allowed to buy houses with gardens and regulated plots of land in Bulgaria on their own names as physical persons. The Treaty of Accession of Bulgaria to the EU allowed Bulgaria to keep the prohibition for EU physical and legal persons to buy land in Bulgaria for up to 5 years for land and up to 7 years for forests and agricultural land after its accession to the EU. The 5-year term has now finished and since 1.01.2012 all EU persons are allowed to buy land in Bulgaria. This applies to houses with gardens, all plots that are within the zoning of the settlements, apartments coming with ideal parts of the land, offices and other commercial properties. For buying agricultural land and forests EU persons still need to register companies in Bulgaria and these limitations will be valid till 1.01.2014. The same regulation applies for citizens of countries from the European Economic Area (EEA).

For all other foreign persons, who are not citizens of EU or EEA countries, the overall restriction to buy land in Bulgaria is still valid, which means that they need to register a Bulgarian company.

3. Property Transfer under the Company's Name: Additional small charges depending on the type of property and the price written on the notary deed (they are around 4% of it) such as notary fees, purchasing property tax, stamp duties, etc. (For example, for a old normal size rural house they are between EUR 200 and EUR 500.) They should be paid separately by the purchaser.
Agency Commission: 2% of purchase price with minimum fee of EUR 500.

Total Fees: 2 % of the purchase price, plus ownership change tax, plus additional EUR 200 for company registration in case there is a land with the property (not necessary for citizens of EU/EEA). If a third party solicitor or attorney is used, the fee is 2% of the purchase price for the brokerage service. The commission of 2% do not apply to properties that are marked with a NO COMMISSION sign.


4. Additional Expenses:

Checking of legibility of all documentation involved in the purchase done by a qualified lawyer: 100 EUR

To act as your legal representative in the country: 100 EUR

5. Expenses after the purchase:

If you are using our company the following applies:

a) If you are not using our Property Management Service:

Registration of the property in the local municipality for tax reasons: 50 EUR (you are obligated to register your property not later then two months after the purchase, otherwise you will be penalized by the municipality.)

Change of electricity bill holder including all expenses involved: 30 EUR

Change of water bill holder including all expenses involved: 40 EUR

Preparation and submission of the year tax form done by a qualified accountant if your company has no other activity apart from the one involving the property 180 EUR (with all expenses involved)

b) If you are using our Property Management Service: (cost 200 EUR)

In this case you will only pay for the actual expenses realized in connection with each issue (you will pay between 20% and 50 % less for each service).For example preparation and submission of the year tax form with all expenses involved will be 130 EUR. All invoices will be presented. Mainly your choice depends on how often you will use our services each year. All prices will be agreed with you in advance.

You can use another agent for your property and company management, if you prefer.

The process could be seen more clearly on the following diagram.

Please note that it is not necessary for the client to come to Bulgaria to purchase a property. We can set up a limited ownership company on behalf of the client(not necessary for citizens of EU/EEA) and buy the property in his company’s name. We will need a copy of client's passport, full address, power of attorney notary sealed, a 10% property deposit, agency commission of 2 %(min EUR 500), EUR 200 for registration of limited ownership company(not necessary for citizens of EU/EEA), and property transfer taxes of about 4% of the price written on the dead (incl. notary taxes, notary fees, municipal tax, and stamp duty), 100 EUR for checking of legibility of all documentation and 100 EUR to act as your representative in the country. When the company formation process is completed before the actual deal in front of the notary the rest of the purchase price should be paid.

Please note that these taxes vary with time and the client will be notified accordingly. Before the notary act we will need the rest of the purchase price.

Our lawyer with 25 years experience in Bulgarian Law and solid reputation will be happy to give you free legal advice and assist if any difficulties arise.

Buying Process of Bulgarian Property - A Detailed Explanation

1. Select a property. Initially you can use our website and eventually you can come to Bulgaria to see the property. We can arrange individual trips to the sites, your accommodation and transport.

2. Sign an agency (brokerage, intermediation) contract.
As soon as you make your choice you need to sign an agency contract with us, put a deposit and authorize us to organize and finalize the deal. Our total fee in the contract is 2% of the purchase price plus all property transfer taxes (usually 4% of the price written on the deed and they are for the notary public). Often tax estimation price is lower then the purchasing price, depending on the type of the property.
The deposit (at least 10%, which is negotiable with the seller) is necessary to take the Bulgarian property out of the market for about 30 days (also negotiable with the seller). By the end of this period you should start the purchasing process and pay the rest of the price. The deposit and the agency commission (2% with minimum fee of 500 EUR) are not refundable in any case of failed purchase because of the buyer's fault. The deposit and our agency commission must be paid together when we sign the contract. You can pay total price without deposit as we will treat it like reservation deposit.
All deposits and fees can be paid cash or into our bank account in pounds, euros or BG levs. We will negotiate the payment method with you to match your requirements.
If you wish to use third party solicitor or attorney chosen by you to do the remaining job our commission in the agency contract is 2% from the purchase price for the brokerage service only.
