    Apologies, this is probably hidden somewhere in another thread. But, what prices have you been quoted for lawyers fees, including all disbursements:
    stamp duty - fixed at 2.5% of purchase price?
    notary fees
    notary taxes - fixed at 0.5% of pp ?
    registry fees - fixed at 1% of pp ?

    I have received a quote for a purchase in Marrakesh of 5% of the purchase price. Is this reasonable?

    Many thanks SS

    HI sunnyshores,

    this is very usual

    overall cost of buying a property in Morocco is around 5% - 7% of the property value. (note: in the UK and in most European countries, buying costs are around 10%)

    This is made up as follows:-
    • Registration fees 2.5%
    • Notary's Tax 0.5%
    • Notary's fees 1.0% to a max of 2,500 Dirham
    • Land registry 1.0% (to get title deeds)
    • Sundry expenses 2,000 Dirham
    • Lawyer (optional but recommended)
    • Estate Agents (simsaar) fees (if using an agent) 2.5%
    • VAT may or may not be added into the cost of the sale and depends on the developer, and whether the property is a new-build or resale. This is a fee that you’ll want to verify BEFORE signing anything.
    • Cost of currency £0 to £1,000’s

    If you need anything drop me an email
