Poland real estate – chance to settle in Poland

The Polish real estate market is very popular among investors. It offers low-interest rates and good prices compared to real property costs in other EU states. In addition, the Polish market looks very attractive because it remains stable for many years and provides many benefits to local and foreign businessmen. 

Investors from other countries may acquire the following types of real property in Poland:

  • Lands (alone or with constructions)
  • Buildings
  • Apartments

How to acquire Polish real estate

To purchase real property, foreigners from the majority of states must obtain a special permission. According to the legislation, a foreigner is:

  1. a non-Poland citizen
  2. a legal entity registered abroad
  3. a partnership of non-citizens which has no legal personality, has established a business in another country or is established under the laws of another country
  4. a legal entity which is registered in Poland but is controlled by individuals or partnerships described above.

The permission is given by the Ministry of Interior if there are no objections from other ministries and if the foreigner proves that he has bonds with Poland.

Note that those foreigners that come from the countries which are a part of the European Economic Zone do not need a permission to obtain real estate in Poland.

To get the permission, individuals should submit an application where they must display their legal status, the asset they are eager to buy and its legal form as well as describe how they will use the new acquisition. The Ministry of Interior has a right to request additional documents for verification. It may also administer special requirements for the foreigner (conditioned permission). The latter one allows making a deal after certain conditions are met.

The permission is effective for two years.
