Excellent location

Village House and Cottages enjoy an excellent hillside location, and can be accessed easily, either from the main road, or from the Belmont Walkway. Located in Belmont, the properties are a short walk from Port Elizabeth harbour, where there are local supermarkets, craft shops, bars and restaurants. From the apartments, there is a lovely ocean view out onto Admiralty Bay, where you can watch the yachts coming in and out of the harbour.

Village Apartments are also only 90 yards from the beach, and there is also a wooden dock very close to the properties. This is definitely an excellent location, and the apartments and surrounding land have an exciting amount of potential.

Village Apartments: House and Cottages - Bequia

This sale consists of one private house, and 7 self contained cottages currently used as rental units, on almost half an acre of land. Each rental unit has one or two bedrooms, private porch and balcony, living and kitchen area, and ceiling fans already installed. These are great spaces, and work well as they are.

There is also potential to build and expand if desired. Bequia currently has a thriving rental business, so this is obviously an excellent opportunity to continue these properties as a thriving rental property. Alternatively, could simply be used as a home right in the heart of Bequia.

BEQUIA

Bequia, which means the Island of Clouds, is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt of the 60 islands that make up the 68 mile long archipelago of the Grenadines.

Due to the remote position of the islands and their dependence upon inter-island trade; the locals, who are proud of their boat building and fishing traditions, are eager to share their knowledge and welcome visitors to the island.

Jimmy Buffet lists Bequia as one of his top 5 least spoilt of the Caribbean Islands. This lush green island characterized by tropical rainforest is surrounded by miles of stunning white sandy beaches. The indigenous woodland offers a variety of flora and fauna including wild orchids, tropical fruit and nuts, Hummingbirds and Yellowbirds making this environment free from commercial noise and alive with natural sounds of the sea, the warming trade winds and local wildlife.

Sailing, scuba diving, windsurfing, kayaking, hiking, diving, cruising to the Tobago Cays and the other beautiful islands are just a few of the activities this location has to offer all of which The Grenadines Team would be happy to arrange.

Bequia has no high rise hotels, all the bars, restaurants and businesses are small, local and welcoming to the visitors, most of whom arrive and leave by the sea.

Buyers Guide

Purchasing land in a foreign country can seem like a daunting task. We are here from start to finish of the process, and pride ourselves with a strong relationship with previous buyers, assisting in settling new owners into the island and their property. We are happy to assist with any part, from the handover, relocating, shipping, staffing, and continuing through our rental program.

We extend our full concierge services, and regularly handle all arrangements for potential purchasers visiting the islands for viewings - private or scheduled flights, transfers, accommodation, island briefings, tours and property viewings.

We arrange and lead viewings ensuring they are comfortable, relaxed and well timed. We provided detailed printed material and can photograph aspects of the property which are of particular interest to you, ensuring that all follow up material is focused for you.

From helping you find the right property, assisting in assessment & evaluation, advice on legal processes to various areas surrounding architecture, design, project management, property maintenance, management, and rental.

The entire process can be handled remotely - ie while you are in the UK.

Purchase procedure:

1. Make your offer for your chosen property through us. We present your offer, and work to bring the sale to an agreement with the owner.

2. Appoint a local Lawyer to handle your purchase (list of recommended lawyers can be provided upon request) exchange contact details and discuss the purchase arrangements, as you wish.

3. Sign Agreement of Sale & deposit 10% of purchase price in ESCROW account with the lawyer.

The Agreement of Sale Contract is prepared by the lawyer for approval by both parties, before being finalised and signed by both parties. This is a binding agreement, the only circumstances where you would retrieve the deposit would be if:
- the seller fails to perform (for example if there was not clear title)
- or if your ALHL is not issued (this is extremely rare).

4. Alien Land Holders Licence (ALHL) Application (specific to the property & applied for at the time of agreement of purchase ).

Provide the following details to your local lawyer :
- Date and place of birth
- Copy of passport
- Nationality
- Bank reference (not finances just a letter of reliability)
- Police certificate of clear record (applied for from your local police station or online, in your home country

UK: http://www.acro.police.uk/police_certificates.aspx

The police certificate is usually fairly swift and at least straightforward

The lawyer makes the ALHL application and searches to check clear title on the property

5. ALHL is issued (this usually takes 2 to 3 months).

6. Complete the purchase (you deposit the balance of purchase price and the signed deeds of conveyance are released). At this point the property is yours.


Purchase Costs

Purchase costs are straightforward;
- 5% Stamp Duty
- approximately 6% ALHL
- legal fees
Legal fees are standard and the lawyer you instruct can provide a detailed breakdown of the costs.
We advise allowing 13% to cover the costs.

Ownership

The lawyer can advise on personal or company ownership;
Company ownership provides automatic exemption from work permit. Residency is a simple formality with property ownership.

Many buyers choose to own their property through a company which can be set up easily, the lawyer can advise on the costs and fees for this.

There is no capital gains tax, no inheritance tax and annual property taxes are negligible. Funds can be repatriated freely.
