Acquiring real property
Since 2005, all owners of property within Greek territory are basically* required to file a return with the competent local tax authority. In a new regulation since August 2015 there is such an obligation only if there is also an income in Greece. But it is always recommended to inform yourself by consulting a Lawyer ore tax adviser.
In 2010, a tax burden was imposed on real property, similar to that seen in many other countries. After many changes and modifications in the nature of the burden, it ultimately became the “Single Property Tax”, or “ENFIA”, as it is known in Greece.
Starting in 2016, with any purchase of a building, an energy performance certificate must be issued for the property and submitted to the competent authorities before the sale can be completed.
