    FAQ

    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. This is especially the case for larger transactions and land purchases.

    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?
