    Vietnam opened up to foreign real estate investors as late as 2015 and the market has flourished since.

    Most multinationals can be found here, helping local and foreign companies with leasing, appraisal, and investment services, for example.

    FAQ

    Below I have included commonly asked questions and my replies.

    How much do I need to pay my real estate agent in Vietnam?

    Buyers typically pay 1% to 2% of the purchase price to the real estate agent.

    Should I hire a solicitor in Vietnam?

    Buying property in a developing country like Vietnam sometimes requires that you hire a credible solicitor, at least for large and/or commercial transactions.

    Compared to real estate agents, solicitors have a deeper knowledge when it comes to ownership regulations and they can assist you in the conveyancing process, like:

    • Checking the title – confirming that there are no hidden liens, encumbrances or mortgages attached to the property
    • Do a scrutiny check of the seller and confirm that he or she is actually owning the property, the problems are usually due to problems at the seller’s side, not the government
    • Handle communications with the seller’s side
    • Drafting and review the contracts together with you
  • Want to buy property in Vietnam?
