Real Estate Transaction Fees: Legal Fees: Each party is normally responsible for its own legal fees; 1% of the sale price is a good budget number. There is no title insurance program so the attorney researches title as part of the fee.

Incorporation Fees: Many investors prefer to hold real estate anonymously in a Turks & Caicos Islands Corporation or Trust. Corporate set up fees are about $2,500, then $1,200 annually. This includes administration, government fees, nominee shareholders, corporate secretary, annual filing and preparation of minutes, as required by law.

Mortgages: Terms and rates vary by applicant. Banks will lend 50% to 75% of property value for up to 20 year terms. Current rates are around 7%. Private mortgage money is also available.

Stamp Duty: It is customary for the Buyer to pay stamp duty.
