Can foreigners buy land, house, or apartment in Poland?

We Serbians are practically Poles.

Yes, you are welcome if you are Slavic, for, I think this way you will blend in easier than non-Slavs. I welcome all Slavs to Poland. This is better than grimacing German or American investors who only want to change our infrastructure to suit their western needs, no thanks.

Bringing this thread back from the dead - unfortunately getting error messages on the Interior Ministry's website.

If a citizen of Belarus wants to buy an apartment here are there any legal steps required other than the normal ones ?

Looking for a helpful answer to this question but will give it 3 or 4 posts before it becomes a bunfight about either Pan Slav nationalism or national security threats.

No, there are no rules about buying an apartment or house. Only farmland and forestry. There were some rules about buying a second home, however as far as I know this rule was relaxed some time ago.

Jon there are rules about buying a house if you are from outside the EEA which is why I wanted to know. For an apartment it seems you can do what you want but thought its worth to double check.

This is true.

buying a house if you are from outside the EE

Do you have a 'settlement visa'? That permits you to buy land.

The Law permitting the purchase of land is changing on 30th April 2016. This may only apply to farmland, but if your land does not have WZ (requirements for building) and all the media connected, then it will be counted as farmland.

Please make sure everything is legal before you purchase anything.

No contact information, only a poorly designed website. Not exactly reliable.

Sometimes apartments are sold together with shares in the access road (i.e. when the investor had to build a private road). In such cases non-EU citizens need permit to buy those shares.

hello everyone.
I am from india and plan to invest in PoznaƄ, Poland. Is it possible for me to buy a house there on a business visa and also how well do indian food joints run in Poland.

2) Is it possible to buy multiple apartments and rent them out.

1. You can buy a house, multiple apartments - in fact any property - as long as you pay by CASH.
1. There are too many Indian restaurants already - you will not make a fortune. You have to speak Polish to deal with bureaucracy in Poland before they let you open anything.

2. Unless you are in Poland and can make sure that any rented property is being looked after - they o.k. However, make sure that your contracts are water-tight written by a lawyer, as once anyone is in, it is extremely difficult to get them out of your property.

thanks terri
by any property do you mean commercial property as well.
if the property is rented to students is it a problem then also to get them out.

@worldly world
Do you know the English expression...suck it and see.
Try it and then you'll know.
Also remember that students only want a place during term time and no one will rent during the oyther months. If it was so easy plenty f people would do that. You have not discovered America, you know.

As a foreigner, you are required to have license and permit to buy land in Poland. Are you EU citizen? Also, do you have Residence Permit or Temporary Residence Permit in Poland?

Farmland and/or forestry.

Foreigners who are non EU or EEA nationals must obtain permission from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration after getting approved by the Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Agriculture)

If a person has residence in PL, the Ministry of National Defence are never now involved - this was a PRL hang over. The Minisrty of Agriculture relates to land classified for farmlend and forestry. To buy a house in Warsaw - you just buy it.

Anyway, if you look, you'll see that Marina is a French Citizen, so unless she wants to buy a farm or a forest there are no issues that differ from a Polish Citizen buying.

She might as well bugger off. After all it Germany and France wants to hit Polish transport companies under a pretext that wages of the Polish truck drives are lower than their French/German counterparts and it suppose to be unfair competition.

So I propose that French/German citizens wanting to buy a property in Poland should be forced to pay French/German prices if we are to fight unfairness.

While we are on it. How about the EU fighting unfairness should star to pay to the Polish farmers the same money they pay to framers in Germany. ( Poland - 25 euro versus 100 euro in Germany)

France and Germany

Is she Minister of Transport there? No. She's an ordinary citizen looking for somewhere to live. She's asking about regulations. There are none, unless she wants to take up farmin or forestry.

She might as well bugger off

Says a long yet expat elsewhere in Europe.

So I propose that French/German citizens wanting to buy a property in Poland should be forced to pay French/German prices

In some cases that would mean she gets it cheaper. Have you checked the cost of a building plot in a good part of Warsaw lately?

If you are non-EU, the obligations to obtain a permit applies not only to agricultural land but to any land (except the land on which the apartment building sits, in case you are buying an apartment). I bought an apartment in a building that has a private access road/alley, so I had to buy a share in the road, and for that I had to ask MSWiA for a permit. In the course of issuing the permit, MSWiA asked the Ministry of National Defense for opinion, even though I have residence in Poland. It took more than a year to get it. All that for a worthless share in the access road!

MB, it much less expensive to buy land in France than Poland. You will find it very difficult to find a fair price on a house or land. The wise option would be to frequently visit Poland and get to know people, prove your worth and they will help you buy land. Nothing is for nothing in this country, the Real estate agents are nowt but parasites living on the backs of parasites...

Land is still very cheap in Poland (well most places in the country, and even then still cheap on a like for like basis). On a longer timescale, it won't be getting any cheaper. So buy now, or pay up later.

With the current muslim invasion of Europe, I would imagine property in Poland would be in high demand.

The terrorism issue has seen even bigger demand for beachside property. You are getting a lot of retail interest in apartments on the coast which is helping to compress yields further. Elsewhere, the continued strength of the economy is ensuring foreign inflows continue. Much is made of the political issues that keep arising but I would just point to Hungary as an example, where despite Orban antics, Hungary as an investment over the last few years has been nothing but a success story. Anyone that positioned themselves for downside on the back of Orbans policies didnt come out very well, in fact its been one of the biggest red herrings in investment in the region. I would suggest a similar road for Poland while Kaczynski does no worse than Orban did. Returns and getting paid matter, the rest markets are prepared to look the other way.

Buying Real Estate in Poland as a Non-Resident

I am an EU citizen and I would like to purchase a small plot of undeveloped land in Poland. I don't live in Poland. Can EU-country foreigners purchase and own land under the same conditions that Polish citizens can? I don't plan to use it for farming or agriculture. Any advice here would be much appreciated. Thanks!
