Property Restrictions for Foreigners

What are the implications of setting up my own leaseback arrangement?

You are simply signing a commercial lease (rather than a simple rental mandate) with a management company who carry out key services.

This means you are deemed to be running a commercial enterprise and therefore entitled to recover the VAT.  It is more of a commitment than a rental mandate and the restrictions are ones that don’t affect the normal owner (can't live there for more than 182 days a year and have to make it available for around 8 winter weeks).

Information correct as of 1st January 2024. This may change as rules and regulations change often, so please contact us directly if you have any specific enquiries.
