About Jeremy Boyd, Irish Town

J Boyd Estate Agency facilitates the sale and letting of residential and commercial property in Gibraltar.

The aim is to keep it simple by providing all of the advice and help you may need with your property sale, rental or letting.

Clients of J Boyd Estate Agency can expect advice that can be trusted, drawn from 30 years estate agency experience.  

3 Year Residency Explained

Private property ownership has seen significant growth in the last 30 years in Gibraltar. The small land mass and day to day practicalities of a land frontier, has meant that some properties in Gibraltar are restricted for sale to qualifying buyers only. These are typically the properties that were initially constructed using Gibraltar Government funding, built specifically as affordable housing, or properties that were previously Government owned but since released to the private market for private ownership.   

Generally there are restrictive covenants in the underleases of such properties. For instance, under letting is strictly prohibited.  Restrictive covenants are not the same on all properties that are residency restricted so it is advisable to check first with the estate agent before confirming any decisions.

A qualifying buyer(s) must be able to demonstrate continual residency in Gibraltar for the 3 years immediately prior to purchase to the relevant Government authorities.  This rule applies to all parties that are named on the purchase agreement.  The application for consent from Government would usually be applied for by the purchaser`s solicitor / conveyancer at the time of sale “subject to contract”.

Buy to Let in Gibraltar

With gross rental yields on buy to let property typically between 5 – 7% for residential property in Gibraltar, combined with an absence of locally applied Capital Gains Tax, low rent arrears rates, and minimum rental voids it is little wonder that the buy to let market has expanded as much as it has in recent years.

Regardless of whether you are looking to become a first-time landlord or want to expand your existing property portfolio, contact J Boyd Estate Agency for all of the buy to let support you will need.

A complete lettings and property management solution is provided to help you find and secure the perfect buy to let property, as well as let it in the simplest and most cost-effective manner.

Buy to let mortgages

Funding for buy to let is available in Gibraltar. Access for borrowers to mortgage funding will be dependent on the deposit amount, status and other commitments.  Talk to J Boyd Estate Agency as early as possible for general information on the buy to let mortgage market in Gibraltar.

Tenancy agreements

Your rental managing agent will prepare the tenancy agreements in accordance with local market practices. There are no Assured Shorthold Tenancy obligations applicable in Gibraltar so tenancy agreements are covered by contract law.

Taxable income

Although there is not Capital Gains Tax in Gibraltar, all income generated by the letting of property is subject to local tax. All landlords are required to register themselves at the local Tax Office whether they are resident in Gibraltar or not.  It is recommended that all landlords refer to their Gibraltar tax adviser for advice on tax matters.  

Stamp Duty

Stamp duty is payable on the transfer or sale of any Gibraltar real estate or shares in a company owning Gibraltar real estate (on an amount based on the market value of the real estate).

The Gibraltar Stamp Duties Act 2005 (as amended) relates only to transactions involving real estate property situate in Gibraltar. The rates of duty applicable are as follows:

Where the purchaser qualifies as a first- or second-time homebuyer and the property consists entirely of residential property:

(i)  Nil % on the first £260,000 of the value of the property;
(ii)  5.5% on any balance above £260,000 to £350,000
(iii)  3.5% on the balance above £350,000

In all other instances:

(i)  Nil % where the value of the property does not exceed £200,000;
(ii)  2% on the first £250,000 and 5.5% on the balance, where the value of the property exceeds £200,000 but does not exceed £350,000; and
(iii)  3% on the first £350,000 and 3.5% on the balance where the value of the property exceeds £350,000.

Additionally, if the property is purchased with the assistance of a mortgage, stamp duty is charged at the rate of 0.13% where the amount borrowed does not exceed £200,000 and 0.20% for amounts in excess of £200,000.
