Closings Costs & Taxes
Real estate transactions are always handled using the European system where the Civil Law Notary is responsible, by law, to both parties and is obligated to do a proper title search to insure a clear title transfer. Therefore, title insurance is not necessary. For the same reason, a personal attorney is not required either.
Our real estate closings are completed in English or French within the time frame set by the purchase agreement. Closing times can range anywhere between one week and 2 months, and closing costs vary between 5 -10% of the total purchase price.
On both side of the island owners are under the obligation to pay room tax and income tax the French side has tax foncier tax dabitation and capital gain.
