What do I need to know when buying property in Kenya?
When we asked expats what advice they would give a foreigner before buying a property in Kenya, they said...
"1. It is important to research the area you are looking to buy in, as well as the local laws and regulations that may affect the purchase. 2. It is also important to ensure that the property is free from any legal disputes or encumbrances. 3. You should also consider the cost of living in the area, as well as the availability of public services such as water, electricity, and sanitation. 4. It is important to hire a qualified lawyer to assist you with the purchase process, as well as to ensure that all documents are in order. 5. You should also consider the cost of taxes and fees associated with the purchase, as well as any additional costs such as insurance and maintenance. 6. Finally, it is important to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the terms of the sale, including any restrictions or conditions that may be attached to the property," explained one expat living in Kenya.
