What are the steps to build a house as a foreigner?
You want to have a house constructed in Greece – where do you start?
House construction in Greece starts with purchasing a land plot. This transaction consists of several stages. Our company will do its best to make it easier for you.
The land owner should provide a copy of his own land purchase contract and a topography plan of the land plot.
Our stuff will check if the topography plan correlates with the actual existing plot, and they will also check the plot’s construction coefficients. These are factors which define the maximal permissible metric area of the building that may be constructed on this particular plot. For example, on a plot with metric area of 100 m2 which is granted a 0.4 coefficient one may construct a house which has a metric area of 40m2.
All land plots in Greece split into 2 categories:
plots within a populated area;
plots outside a populated area
They are granted different construction coefficients. For example, a plot located within a city area may have a coefficient ranging from 0.4 to 2.4, which may also be increased, as an exception. With regard to the second type, plots covering an area exceeding 4000 m2 are considered eligible for construction (exception can be made for plots covering a smaller area which adjoin a road).
Permissible metric area of a house to be constructed on such plot is calculated in the following way:
Plot 4000m2: a building which has a metric area of 200m2 is allowed to be constructed.
Plot area 4000-8000m2: the building metric area is calculated as follows: 200m2 + (plot metric area – 4000) x0.02
Plot area over 8000m2: the building metric area is calculated as follows: 280m2 + (plot metric area – 8000) x0.01
Along with the plot checkup our staff members will investigate its legal history (tax history, possible fines etc).
Land prices in Greece depend on numerous factors such as the plot’s location, its distance from the sea and the nearest populated area, the view it has etc.
