Summary of Purchase Process:
* How much does a notary cost?
The amount paid for the notary depends on the age of the property.
Existing Property - between 7% and 10% of the purchase price, excluding estate agency fees
Recent/New Property Developments - 2% in conveyancing fees and registration taxes, plus VAT at the rate of 20% on the purchase price (except for sales between private individuals), excluding estate agency fees. Even though many refer to these fees as ‘notary fees’, the notary only receives around 1% of the property sale price
Even though many refer to these fees as ‘notary fees’, the notary only receives around 1% of the property sale price. The remaining amount goes to the government to pay stamp duty and registration tax disbursements.
If a company is used to purchase the property, the buyer who signed the preliminary contract with their own name will substitute his/her company which means that the contract is free of any tax.
** The seller must pay Capital Gains Tax (if any is due) through the account of the notary who registers the contract at the Mortgage office. In general, if the property is the seller’s principal home there will not be any capital gains tax. If it is a second home, there will likely be capital gains tax to pay. The notary will take charge of this.
How long does the purchase process normally take?
The period between the signature of the preliminary contract and the final deed (which means signature of the final notarised deed and payment of the full price, plus notary costs and agency commission fees) is usually around 2 to 4 months.
This can be accelerated with the agreement of all parties.
