Property purchase procedure

Property purchase procedure in St Kitts and Nevis

Real estate in Saint Kitts and Nevis can be selected remotely: Immigrant Invest has a database of verified properties. The parties conclude a preliminary purchase and sale agreement: the buyer pays a deposit of 10% of the object’s value. This is necessary to withdraw the property from sale.

The next stage is the purchase of a land ownership licence. The licence is purchased only by those foreigners who don’t participate in St Kitts and Nevis citizenship program. Then the parties sign the main purchase and sale agreement in the presence of a notary. A certificate of ownership is obtained in the state registry of the country. The property purchase process takes about a week.

When buying real estate, foreigners also buy a land ownership licence  — 10% of the property value — and pay property tax. It consists of two parts: the land tax and the building tax. The rates depend on the property type and the island. The highest prices are for commercial real estate and housing land on the island of Nevis.

Agricultural, educational and institutional properties on the island of Saint Kitts are exempt from property taxes.

Citizenship by the purchase of a real estate

Citizenship of St Kitts and Nevis by the purchase of a real estate

Saint Kitts and Nevis has a government citizenship program for investors. One of the options is purchasing real estate. An investor can buy a property worth:

  • minimum of $175,000 — a share in a social or infrastructure project;
  • minimum of $200,000 — a share of, or the entire real estate in a project approved by the government for participation in the program;
  • minimum of $400,000 — any object outside the government-approved project list. This option is limited in time — the program department accepts investor applications only until November 1, 2022.

Real estate investment in St Kitts and Nevis

If you invest in property in St Kitts and Nevis, you can participate in the country’s Citizenship by Investment program. The program supports three options, including commercial and residential real estate. The minimum investment is $175,000. 

The first real estate option under the citizenship program is known as the Alternative Investment Option. An investor buys a share in a Public Good Project Developers project for at least $175,000, or a share in a Private Enterprise Developers for at least $200,000. The properties include socially significant infrastructure in St Kitts and Nevis — such as affordable housing, and medical or educational facilities. While the investment is non-refundable, and the property should be turned over to the government in 7 years, the investor can earn profit from it. 

The second real estate investment option under the Citizenship by Investment program is purchasing government-approved projects in St Kitts and Nevis. Both commercial and residential types are property are available, including villas, condos, townhouses, housing projects, apartments and apartment complexes, hotels, resorts, and yacht marinas. The minimum investment can be either $200,000 or $400,000, with a holding period of 7 and 5 years respectively. After that, the investor can resale the property for profit. 

Joint and full types of ownership are allowed under this option. Investors can rent out their investment real estate, and earn an annual yield of 2—5%. 

The third real estate investment option under the Citizenship by Investment program is buying a private home for a minimum of $400,000. Note that this option will be valid until November 1, 2022. Investors can purchase a residential real estate object in full ownership — for instance, family homes, villas, apartments, or apartment complexes. Such investment is refundable and can be sold in 5 years for a profit.
