Montenegro: Real Estate Update

What a difference a year makes. At the start of 2008 Montenegro was heralded as one the best places for foreign investors to buy property, helped along by new law proposals which would make it easier for overseas property buyers to purchase real estate in the country.

However the country has not escaped the financial turmoil gripping the globe. With some perceiving there is a lack of economic security in Montenegro and the infrastructure worrying some, the real estate market has stagnated and properties have not seen the surge in prices that was once predicted.

Montenegro: The next property hot spot?

With the news that Montenegro Airlines are set to start flying to London Gatwick, many property investors believe that property in Montenegro is set to be one of the next big property hot spots.

The direct flights not only open up the market to UK investors, but will also give the local area a boost to their tourism industry. Montenegro is starting to see transport links with many countries, and with promises made to improve the infrastructure throughout the country, it is easy to see why some foreign property investors are getting excited about Montenegro.

Montenegro backs property law change for overseas investors

The Government in Montenegro has backed a draft law which will make it easier for buying foreign propertys to purchase real estate in the country.

Currently, there is a law in place which states that any buyer from overseas must setup a company if they wish to buy real estate for development purposes. However the Montenegrin Government are now backing a removal of this law which will help overseas buyers invest in the country’s real estate.

Finding Your Property
Once you have found your perfect Montenegrin property, a pre-contract is signed and a deposit must be paid.

It is also good if they have a good working knowledge of laws in your home country.
