Are foreigners allowed to own property in Sweden?
When we asked expats in Sweden if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...
"Yes, foreigners are allowed to own property in Sweden. Non-residents of Sweden are allowed to purchase property in the country, however, they must obtain permission from the Swedish Tax Agency before they can do so. This permission is usually granted if the buyer can prove that they have sufficient financial resources to purchase the property. Additionally, foreign buyers must also register with the Swedish Land Registry and pay a transfer tax," commented one expat who made the move to Sweden.
