In Cambodia, you normally have to pay a 10% deposit after you’ve done your due diligence. Get a hold of us now and we’ll make sure to connect you with someone who can discuss the process and prices, along with your borrowing options!

Variations in loan terms and rates affect how much repayments you make. Reach out to us today and we’ll quickly connect you to a range of partner lenders offering customized repayment packages, depending on your needs.

Lenders can be flexible regarding the frequency of repayment. But it’s advisable to take a loan that allows for a fortnightly or weekly payment because this reduces the time you have to pay back the loan and the amount you have to pay back.

Unfortunately, Cambodia currently does not offer any special grants or loans for first home buyers. However, there is a wide range of loans available that our partner lenders can customize for your personal needs. Just drop us a message and we’ll connect you to the best lenders in the country.

There are a number of fees involved when buying a property. To avoid any surprises, the list below sets out all of the usual costs:

  • Property Tax — This tax is applicable for immovable properties which are priced $25,000 and above. It is collected yearly at 0.1% of the property.
  • Title Verification — Checking for potential liens or encumbrances under a title will cost you around $12.50, according to Prakas 995 which is dated December 28th, 2012.
  • Loan Processing Fee — Lenders will charge appropriate fees to cover the charges incurred for valuation and processing of the loan.
  • Application For Registration — Done at the District Land Office of the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning & Construction, you must pay a cadastral transfer fee of KHR 600,000 in order to insert the name of the new owner on the legal documents.
  • Property Insurance — Although not required, getting additional insurance for the property will help you safeguard your investment towards the property just in case calamity strikes or something suddenly goes wrong.
