IMPORTANT INFORMATION WHEN BUYING PROPERTY IN BULGARIA
All foreign buyers purchasing real estate property must be aware that in
Bulgaria there are such terms as "tax estimation price" and "purchase
price". The "tax estimation price" is for the purposes of real estate
taxation and is much lower than the actual selling (purchase) price.
Most of the Bulgarian property owners (vendors) wish that the "tax
estimation price" is written in the title deed, and not the selling
(asking) price which the buyers are paying, so due to this practice there
might be discrepancies between the price you are paying and the price
written in the title deed. If the respected
property buyer wishes that the purchasing price is written in the property
title deed they must notify us in advance and we will negotiate on this
with the vendor of the property.
