Fees and Costs involved in the Bulgarian property deal

There are several costs involved in the actual Bulgarian property transfer: stamp duty, the notary fee and registration tax.

Stamp Duty

Stamp duty, or the so-called transfer tax, is paid by the buyer and goes to the local municipality where the property is situated. The amount of the tax is 2 per cent on either the tax evaluation or the purchase price, whichever is the higher. The transfer tax is either paid to the notary or paid by bank transfer to the municipality, and the bank document is presented to the notary.There are also bank charges for the transfer, which depend on the amount transferred and the bank charges of the particular bank.
