In Russia, there are no restrictions for the foreign citizens on buying houses or land related to the real estate. However, there are some nuances in making such deals. The procedure starts in the following way:
When a foreigner acquiring real estate item does not speak Russian, a translator should be invited at the moment of making a deal. You can also act through a representative. The experts of our company will find the most suitable house for you, will collect and prepare all the documents, as well as provide full support in the process of conducting a transaction.
There are no special state benefits for the acquisition of housing or other types of real estate. However, the procedures for migration registration and receiving a temporary residence permit are somewhat facilitated. Perhaps, this is due to the temporary registration in the acquired house.
Buying an apartment in Russia, a foreign citizen will pay taxes according to the special tariffs. The rate is ranging from 0.3 to 2% of the market value of the property. If such a person wants to sell the property, the tax will be 30% of the market price of the house.
First of all, confirm the legality of your stay in the country. The visa, the migration card, ETA, and residence permit will be required. If a foreign citizen has a spouse, he or she will need to receive an official consent for the purchase of real estate. There are also other features of the procedure.
The transaction is considered to be completed after its registration in Rosreestr. As a result, the ownership certificate and other entitling documents are issued.
