Buying Info

How to buy on Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique
Foreigners must apply for an Alien Landholding License which costs EC$1,800 plus 10% of the purchase price. Along with your completed application you will need to provide your local lawyer (who will make the application on your behalf) with the following information:

Original plans of the property/land
Certificate of character (From your local police station)
Character reference (Two are needed)
Banker’s Reference

There is no standard procedure on this, but common practice is to offer 10% of the purchase price as a deposit, which is forfeited if the buyer pulls out. In some cases if the vendor pulls out then the buyers 10% is returned as well as 10% from the vendor. In the unlikely event that the Alien’s Landholding License is not granted, then the deposit is refunded.

Local solicitors usually charge 2% of the purchase price.


Local mortgages are available (subject to status) up to 100% of the property value with maximum term of 25 years but both the LTV (loan to value) and the term vary of course according to a number of factors. Interest rates are generally between 7-8%. There is no minimum you can borrow, but you will always need to prove that you have the funds available to finance a mortgage independently from rental income (if you are planning to rent your Grenada property).
