Property purchasing for non poles- change in rules?

Can't remember where I saw it but has the permission to buy rule finished. Something to do with Polands accession to EU 5 year rule?

Anybody know?


Say I found a 180,000 PLN property as a cash buyer, what would roughly be the extra costs involved. I see some real estate sites offer a calculator with roughly 10k of costs, notary,VAT registration etc on top.

Also as a cash buyer what are my chances of haggling the price down say to 170K PLN. Ideally this would recoup the extra costs involved

1. Ministry approval no longer required for foreigners to buy house/s .
2. Notatry fees vary but for property values at PLN 180k , you're probably looking at PLN 2k notary fee. Court registration is PLN 400.
3. Polish vendors expect you to negotiate & will drop price by at least 10% , maybe more for a cash buyer.

dont forget about agents commission usually 3%, you can haggle this though, unlikely to be less than 2% less your spending over a certain amount.
