Have you been planning to purchase a property in the Czech Republic? (08.09. 2007)


THE PRAGUE POSTIf you are a foreigner and consider a purchase of a property in the Czech Republic, the first question you will definitely ask will be the legal conditions defined and enabled by the Exchange Control Act. And if you decide to finance the purchase of the property with a mortgage, which is no doubt the most convenient financial tool for property purchase, you must know your financial competence necessary to be fulfilled for an approval of the mortgage in banks in the territory of the Czech Republic. Generally, it is possible to say that according to the valid Exchange Control Act, properties in the Czech Republic can be acquired by:

  • residents (physical entities with a permanent residence in the territory of the Czech Republic)
  • foreigners holding a Czech citizenship
  • foreigners holding a residence permit for a citizen of a member country of European communities
  • foreigners – legal entities that situate a company or an organisational subdivision of a company in the Czech Republic and are eligible to carry a business here
  • other foreigners can acquire a property for example:
    • in form of a heritage
    • for a diplomatic representation of a state on the condition of reciprocation
    • within a marital common asset, where only one of the married couple is a citizen of the Czech Republic or native


Important information for selection of a property is of course an amount of the mortgage available to the client in regard to his/her financial competence. The maximal amount of the mortgage possible to be obtained by a foreigner is methodically defined otherwise in every bank (however, he/she can obtain up to 100% of the property price). The maximal maturity period of the mortgage can be up to 30 years. The interest rate varies from 2.9 %.

When selecting the way of financing, one must decide what type of a loan is the most convenient for him/her – that means to know what the banks offer, conduct difficult negotiations in banks and compare all bank offers, which is very difficult for a laic. Each mortgage, the processes of obtaining this loan at individual banks, situations and also possibilities of a client are fully specific.
