Land & Property Lawyers in The Gambia
We provide preliminary investment advice for cients who want to invest in or retire to The Gambia. Our advice centres on choices available to you and the tax and cultural issues arising when investing in a country with which you are not familiar.
We are property lawyers and not estate agents. We do, however, provide a property finding service for our Investment Clients. If you wish to take advantage of this service we will use our knowledge of the market place and our contacts to locate properties that meet your specification.
Property Transfer in The Gambia
Once you have found your property – whether using our property finding service or your own initiative – we can deal with the transfer of the legal ownership of the property into your name.
Buying Residential Property
Whether you are buying a holiday home, a place for retirement or an investment property in The Gambia, let our team of specialist property lawyers transfer the ownership safely into your name – and deal with all of the other vital issues that must be taken into account when buying property in The Gambia.
Selling Residential Property
If you are selling your property in The Gambia whilst in The Gambia or abroad, you main concern is getting you hands on the money as quickly as possible. But there can be a lot more to do, especially if you want to minimise your taxes both in The Gambia and in the country where you live.
Let our team of specialist property lawyers help you deal with the sale safely.
Property Rental Contracts
So you have bought your investment property in The Gambia and you want to let it out. Are you really going to allow the tenant into possession without a singed rental contract? Y
ou need to protect you legal position. Let us prepare a specimen contract that you can use over and over again. Just check every couple of years that the law has not changed!
Mortgaging your Property
Some of our Clients now borrow to finance the purchase of their property in The Gambia. Let us discuss with you whether a mortgage in your own country or a mortgage in The Gambia will best suit your needs.
Note that we are not mortgage brokers and we are not trying to sell you any particular mortgage product.
Property Contract Checking Service
Some of our Clients do not wish to take advantage of our full property transfer service but prefer us only to check their contracts and advise them about any problems that we find. This can be quite a lot cheaper than (but nearly as secure as) our dealing with the whole transaction.
Other clients ask to carry out a preliminary review of their contracts right at the outset of the transaction and before they instruct us to proceed with our full property transfer service. Either way we are happy to fit in with your wishes.
