Buying property in Barbados

The process of purchasing property in Barbados is similar to the UK because the island's laws are based on the English system. However, there are important differences.

International buyers are well accustomed to the protections afforded to the buyer of units in other jurisdictions, particularly in the UK, and are likely to expect the same safeguards to apply in Barbados.

We are experienced in dealing with Bajan property and the professionals on the island.
