In many countries when purchasing a property, a
lawyer is responsible for the drafting and the
registration of the sales contract. In Greece however
we have a separate legal profession known as
‘Notaries’. A notary is responsible for drafting any and
all legally binding contracts. Buying a property in
Greece cannot be completed without their
participation.
The notary fee is calculated in most cases at 1.6 %
including tax and the ‘Land Registry’ fee is calculated
at 0.475 - 0.575 % plus 23 % VAT respectively. The
notarial fee decreases as the amount of the
transaction increases.
On properties where the Building Licence was issued
before January 1st 2006, real estate transfer tax is
charged at 3,09% of the price.
On properties where the Building Licence was issued on
or after January 1st 2006 and the seller is a developer-
contractor, taxation of 23% of the purchase price will
apply.
The legal fee is a matter of agreement but it is usually
1% of the property price or a minimum of 1.500 euros
plus taxes.

Buying property in Greece is different than in many other parts of Europe, but is certainly
not difficult. Kreta Eiendom’s personal service includes guiding you through the whole
purchasing process and beyond.
The simplest way to buy property as a ‘Non Resident’ in Greece is through ‘Power of
Attorney’. As all buyers are required by law to have legal representation when
purchasing real estate, you will need to retain a lawyer whether you chose to use the
power of attorney process or not. If you don’t already have a lawyer we can assist you in
finding one.
We recommend that you chose the Power of Attorney option as it allows the whole
purchase and construction process to be completed quickly and simply in your absence.
Your lawyer will be able to open a Greek bank account in your name, obtain an
obligatory tax number (AFM), make payments on your behalf and deal quickly and
efficiently with any paper work pertaining to the purchase and construction of your
home.
To instigate Power of Attorney you simply need to complete a form with your personal
details and provide a copy of your passport(s). The Power of Attorney will need to be
stamped by the Greek Consulate. If you don’t have a Consulate in your local area we
will inform you of a simple alternative procedure when the time comes.
If you would like further information regarding the benefits and procedures to obtaining a
Power of Attorney please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please note that the majority of legal documentation pertaining to property transactions
is in Greek. Although a verbal translation is always provided, any official translation of
such documentation will be at the buyer’s expense.
”By using Kreta Eiendom in the legal process of buying
a property, the transaction will be far easier than you
imagine. We simply take care of everything!

Land of the gods and the island of dreams, Crete is
steeped in history, myths and legends dating back
thousands of years. Ancient monuments and
architectural treasures blend with modern day
structures creating a warm Mediterranean atmosphere.
Everything you’ve ever imagined a magical place to
have and more can be found on this wonderful island.
Exciting night life, archaeological wonders, spectacular
scenery and unique vegetation, the list is endless. With
a lower cost of living than the rest of Europe and an
even lower crime rate, Crete is a very attractive place
to be!
The largest and most southerly of all the Greek islands,
Crete has over a thousand kilometers of spectacular
coast line. Long sandy beaches, hidden coves and far
reaching peninsulas, surrounded by the Ionian Sea to
the north and the Libyan sea to the south, Crete is one
of the most fascinating and diverse places in the world.
Divided in to four counties; Chania, Rethymno,
Heraklion and Lasithi, each county of Crete has a
character of its own. As you travel across the island, the
rolling landscape and breath taking scenery may
change, but the warmth and friendly hospitality of the
local people always remain the same. They open their
hearts and their homes, eager for you to share their
culture, learn their traditions and sample their cuisine.
Family unity is an important part of life here, revolving of
course around the kitchen table!
Due to the consistently good climate, agricultural and
live stock farming are still the most common industries.
Fruit and vegetables are grown all year round. This
produce, together with their world renowned olive oil
create some of the tastiest and healthiest dishes you will
ever enjoy. No wonder Cretans have one of the highest
life expectancy rates in the world!
Why Choose Crete...
A lot can be said about Crete,
but keep in mind
that the ultimate experience
is to come and discover
it for yourself...

Rethymno was carefully chosen by Kreta Eiendom, not
only for its beauty, but also for its location. Situated in
the heart of the island, Rethymno is within easy reach of
Chania, Heraklion and the un-spoilt south coast. There’s
something for everyone and we’re certain you won’t
be disappointed.
With the White Mountains to the west and Psiloritis to the
east, the prefecture of Rethymno is the most diverse
and mountainous of the four counties. Flourishing
valleys and wonderful ravines meet rocky coves and
sandy beaches. The natural beauty and greenery is not
only astounding, but in many ways unique. The fauna
and flora include over two hundred species of plants
and trees that cannot be found anywhere else in the
world.
There are forty thousand inhabitants residing in
Rethymno County. The city itself is the third largest on
the island. Rich in history, the old town was almost
completely rebuilt during the Venetian occupation. The
Venetians of course were not the only ones to occupy
Crete. The Romans, Arabs and Turks to name a few, all
invaded at some point until 1913 when Crete officially
joined Greece.
Today the Old town of Rethymno still retains its
aristocratic appearance. Venetian, Byzantine and
Turkish influences are clearly visible throughout the
narrow streets. Arched doorways, minuets and stone
steps are common sights, with the beautifully preserved
Old Venetian Harbour and prominent Venetian Fortress.
Shopping is a must in Rethymno, we’re sure that you will
find something to purchase in a city that sells just about
everything from leather bags and shoes, to herbs and
spices, clothes, souvenirs and so much more. Apart from
shopping there’s always something happening,
Rethymno has so much to offer and the island as a
whole has even more. As a famous poet once said
‘Crete is not a place you leave, but a place that you
return to.’
Rethymno You’ll Never Want To Leave...
