How To Invest In Philippine Property: A Guide For Foreigners, Expats And OFWs

by Investvine

Acquiring property in the Philippines, whether it’s a completed condominium or an off-plan unit, is fairly straightforward for foreigners and expats. You just need to know the basics.

First of all, foreigners are – in principle – allowed to buy and own property in the Philippines. They simply need to meet certain conditions, just like in any other investment-friendly country in the region.

Foreigners can buy properties covered by the Condominium Act, which asserts that foreigners can buy condominium units as long as the foreign interest in the entire project does not exceed 40% of the development. Property that is part of a subdivided townhouse community also qualifies under the Condominium Act.

Normally, a foreigner will deal with a property developer directly if he or she wants to purchase a new or off-plan unit or, in case of the resale of an existing property, with a reputable and licensed real estate agency. Both will assist in the buying process, which includes:

  • Preparing and providing all necessary documentation
  • Helping in signing a notarised and binding deed of sale
  • Paying the transfer tax and other fees to get tax clearance
  • Having a title deed issued at the deed registry office

Among the most sought-after new developments in Manila are currently the Novotel Suites Manila andCentury Spire, the latest luxury developments by Century Properties.

Foreign Land Ownership

That was the straightforward part of the story. Things can get more complicated if a foreigner wants to own the land a property is built on.

CPGI-Article-3-QuoteBy law, foreigners don’t have the right to acquire and own land in the Philippines. This right is mostly restricted to Filipino citizens only. The only exemptions are acquisitions before the 1935 Constitution, acquisition through hereditary succession (in case the foreigner is a legal or natural heir), and buying into specially dedicated projects under a special investor visa scheme.

Foreigners who are married to a Filipino citizen can acquire land through their spouse, which is a perfectly legitimate means to acquire Philippine real estate. All paperwork will be in the spouse’s name and must be paid through his or her funds. Naturally, such an arrangement requires a solid relationship between both parties.

Another way for a foreigner to buy land is for him or her to become a shareholder in a Filipino company that buys the land. Again, Philippine law states that a minimum of five shareholders are required and the Filipino shareholders must be at least 60%. But it’s a legitimate option.

One other viable solution to land ownership for a foreigner or a foreign corporation would be a long-term lease. People and entities are currently allowed to lease Philippine land for an initial 50-year period. After that, individual foreigners can continue leasing for another 25 years while foreign-owned, Philippine-incorporated companies can continue leasing for an unlimited period of time.

So in short, a foreigner or foreign company can lease land and then legally own the house purchased or built on the rented land. Should there be any changes in the law down the line (such as the previous Philippine government having considered 100% ownership of Philippine real estate land for foreigners), then arrangements can be made to fully own the land in the future. So far, new President Rodrigo Duterte has said that he will not allow a change in the constitutional limit on individual foreign land ownership, but he has proposed to extend foreign ownership of corporations from the current 40 per cent-limit to up to 70 per cent.

What Do OFWs/Former Filipino citizens Need To Know?

Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and all other Filipinos abroad, as long as they have not renounced their citizenship, have the same ownership rights as domestic Filipinos. In fact, if you’re an OFW, it’s likely that you have invested or are considering investing your hard-earned money into Philippine real estate.

CPGI-Article-3-Filipiknow

Perhaps you’ve chosen a property during a recent visit, but need someone to complete the acquisition process? A trusted property agent can do this using a special power of attorney (SPA). This involves paperwork and extra fees for arranging contracts, income proofs, power of attorney and other documents consularised and approved, but it can save you a lot of precious time and travel expenses. Once all documents are in order, the property agent can even apply for a loan in your name.

If you’re a former Filipino who has given up your Filipino citizenship (“Balikbayan”), it is a bit more complicated although you still have more options than a foreigner. Purchase of land by a former natural-born Filipino citizen is subject to limitations. For example, you can only own up to 1,000 square meters of residential land or one hectare of agricultural or farm land.

For business purposes, 5,000 square meters of urban land or three hectares of rural land are permitted.

That said, former Filipino citizens have the option of re-applying for their original citizenship to regain full rights of possession of Philippine real estate property by becoming dual citizens. This can be a longer process but is still doable.

At the end of the day, investment in Philippine real estate comes with various limitations and entitlements, depending on your citizenship and/or partnerships recognised by Philippine law. Nevertheless, It is possible to invest and one should explore all options to take advantage of the current boom and opportunities in Philippine real estate.

Naturally, it’s not the boom in real estate alone that makes the Philippines a worthwhile investment destination. It’s the country’s strong macro-economic fundamentals including solid GDP growth, a stable currency and an advanced legal system, a widely English-speaking and hospitable population and, in addition, relatively low costs of living, a tropical climate and numerous options for recreational and leisure activities.

フィリピンの国内総生産(GDP)成長率。政府予測を上回る!

2016年第1四半期の国内総生産(GDP)成長率は政府予測を上回る6.9%

 

19日のフィリピン統計庁(PSA)発表によると、2016年第1四半期の国内総生産(GDP)成長率は、政府予測(6・0%)を上回る6・9%で、13年第2四半期の7・5%、同第3四半期の7・0%以来の高成長となった。前期比の伸び率(季節調整済み)は1・1%で、前期の2・1%からやや減速した。

国家経済開発庁(NEDA)によると、中国の6・7%、ベトナムの5・5%、インドネシアの4・9%、マレーシアの4・2%を上回る、域内最高の伸びを示した。NEDAのエスゲラ長官は「選挙関連の支出が増加するため第2四半期は堅調な成長が確実。政府通年目標の6・8〜7・8%は達成可能」との見方を示した。

国民総所得(GNI)の成長率は、前年同期比3・5ポイント増の7・6%だった。

各部門の成長率は、エルニーニョ現象による日照りの影響で、農林水産がマイナス4・4%を記録。8・7%の鉱工業と7・9%のサービスが、農林水産の減速をカバーした。

支出面では外貨送金や物価抑制に支えられ、家計最終消費支出(HFCE)が、前年比0・9ポイント増の7・0%と堅調だった。政府最終消費支出(GFCE)も、前年の0・2%から9・9%へ大幅に伸びた。

ラシエルダ大統領報道官は「堅調な経済成長は現政権のマクロ政策が功を奏している証拠」と成果を強調するとともに、「成長を持続できるかどうかは次期政権にかかっている」と述べた。

部門別の詳細は以下の通り。

【農林水産】エルニーニョ現象による干ばつ被害で、主要品目のコメ(マイナス10%)、トウモロコシ(マイナス19%)、マンゴー(マイナス21%)が大きく落ち込んだ。

【鉱工業】鉱業が11・3%と2桁の伸びを示した。製造業8・1%、建設10・8%と堅調で、電気・ガス・水道も9・7%と伸びた。

【サービス】前年比2・6ポイント増を記録した不動産・ビジネス活動の9・0%を筆頭に、運輸・倉庫・通信5・4%、金融仲介9・1%と好調を維持した。(鈴木貫太郎)

アクア レジデンス 視察

日本から来た投資家Kさん、ホテルまでお迎えしてアクアとセンチュリーシティーなどに視察に行きました。


フィリピンの夏はもうすぐそこ。ギラギラ太陽には日傘が欲しいくらいでしたが、川沿いに建つアクアは、Makatiの街中に比べて涼しい開放感が人気です。

Kさんは壁や床なども緻密にチェックし、前日視察したコンドミニアムに比べてしっかり美しい施工だという感想をいただきました😄

 

メインとなる滝の工事も着々と進んでるのがわかります。

視察希望の方は、ぜひ早めにご予約くださいませ🚘
