ST. MAARTEN | Costs involved with transferring real estate property or a long-term land lease

The notarial costs involved with the transfer of a real estate property are fixed and are dependent on the amount of the purchase price of the property, varying from approximately 2% for properties up to USD 50,000 to approximately 0.4% for properties of USD 1,000,000 and more. Transfer taxes are approximately 4% of the purchase price (or the registered value if this value is higher). A search for liens, recordings and registrations will approximately cost USD 265.
