Who pays notary fees?

It's important to note that notary fees are payable by the buyer in any real estate transaction. It can also be interesting for the seller to be aware of these fees, as they can influence the final sale price. By understanding potential notary fees, the seller can better assess the net amount he will receive from the sale of his property. So, whether you're buying or selling, having a precise knowledge of notary fees is essential for an informed real estate transaction.

What is “Bëllegen Akt”?

For expensive real estate acquisitions, such as the purchase of a house, apartment or building plot, the standard rate for notary fees is 7%. This amount is divided into 6% for registration fees and 1% for transcription fees.

In order to reduce the costs associated with the purchase of a property, the government has introduced a tax credit: the “Bëllegen Akt”. This tax credit offers a reduction in registration and transcription fees for anyone wishing to acquire a property for use as a primary residence.

The tax credit is capped at 40,000 euros per buyer and is doubled for couples (with retroactive effect from January 1, 2024), with each spouse benefiting from the deduction individually.
