Foreign purchasers have the right to own real estate and land in Egypt. Today the government
recognizes the great value foreign investors in property have for the success of the economy and
have set about actively encouraging overseas buyers to Egypt. New laws have been established
to make the Egyptian property purchase procedure more secure. For example, the government
can no longer impound or nationalize any property they wish – a practice that stood for centuries.
These changes, along with a few others, are increasing confidence amongst overseas buyers.
We will gladly guide your through the purchase process in Egypt to ensure you are fully informed
of the facts to avoid any potential pitfalls.
Once you decide on a property, you will need to pay a holding deposit to take the property off the
market while contracts are drawn up.
It is completely usual to negotiate a property’s selling price in Egypt, unless you are buying off-
plan when the price is fixed.
