I want to purchase real estate. How much will hiring your law firm cost me?

What government fees must be paid for purchases?

Stamp duty is assessed at 5% or 8% of the consideration of the property (first US $10,000.00 of the consideration is exempt). The Lands Department reserves the right to assess the value of the property higher than what it is actually being sold for and in that case you, the Purchaser, may be required to pay additional stamp duty.
