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 dependent on the amount of the purchase price of the property. Transfer taxes are 3% if the purchase price (or the registered value if this value is higher) is less than USD 140,500 and 6% if it is higher than USD 140,500. The costs involved for a search for liens, recordings and registrations will depend on the type of search.
