Real estate due diligence in Ukraine. Why it is imperative?

Feod Group established in 1992 has vast experience of providing property search and due-diligence in Ukraine and Internationally to corporate and individual clients, stand ready to assist in all legal and business matters. Our lawyers in Ukraine speak English, Spanish, Italian, Greek languages.

In recent months, we have observed an increase in foreign investors seeking to purchase Ukrainian real estate. This applies equally to commercial and residential property.

One should note that there are no legal restrictions for the purchase of real estate by foreigners in Ukraine, except agricultural land. In this respect, no permits are required.

We strongly recommend you to instruct competent lawyers who carry out a thorough due diligence.

The most common risks related to the purchase of real estate are:

  1. – anomalies in the preliminary contract resulting in the non-return of the prepayment for the proposed purchase;
  2. – restriction of the seller’s rights to sell;
  3. – encumbrances/ mortgages;
  4. – rights of third parties – as an example, minor children officially residing in the residence who can not be evicted without official permission;
  5. – claims from third parties who have a vested interest;
  6. – undervalued sale price resulting in the sanction of tax authorities challenging the agreement as fictitious;
  7. – complications with permits and funding of proposed purchase;
  8. – tax issues.

As a result of the risks listed above, without necessary due diligence, the prospective purchaser stands to lose money, time and effort.

Services we offer our clients typically include:

  1. – investigation of report on the title to the property and/or legal restrictions affecting its use;
