Important to know

What to expect when checking the property before buying in Ukraine?

First of all we will answer the question: Do you need such a check if you decide to buy property in Ukraine?

According to our vast experience - yes, it is necessary.


We have more than once encountered a situation where an absolutely reliable builder has been involved in litigation, or the land on which the building is located did not have the necessary intended use. Moreover, the builder may not have a construction license or the residential building may have been built in violation of established building codes. 

The same pitfalls are in the secondary housing market. Buying land in Ukraine is a painful issue for a foreigner.

Without a clear understanding of the country's laws, its foundations, and how it all works in practice, you risk losing your money - and when buying real estate, it is a huge amount. So yes, you need to properly check the residential building, land or office before investing your money in it.


Is it safe to invest in new buildings in Ukraine?
Depends on the builder, first and foremost. During the inspection process, we check not only the history of the builder himself, but also the companies associated with him.
How long does it take to buy real estate?
We can do an object inspection in 1-2 days, the deal itself can be prepared in a couple of hours. Of course, everything will depend on the complexity of the transaction and the property itself.
