Real estate tax

Real Estate Taxable upon the Registration

The state fee is payable when corroborating real estate in the state register of real estate in Latvia – the Land register (Zemesgramata).
The fee makes up:

  • 2% of the value of real estate entering into the purchase and sale
  • 3% of the value of real estate making the deed of gift
  • 0,5% of the value of real estate dealing with and making the deed of a gift or selling to close relatives (in the ascending and descending line to the second degree of kinship, as well as brothers and sisters)

The fee is calculated taking into account the value referred to in the contract of alienation, if the value thereof is lower of the land survey or cadastral value of real estate (calculated by the State Land Register Office). If the value of the land is below than the land survey value or this is the deed of gift, the land survey or cadastral value is applicable to calculate the fee.
Upon registration of real estate the stamp duty is payable as well, which the amount can be found here: http://www.zemesgramata.lv/default.asp?cid=37
