3 steps FOR becoming aN owner

Naturally, the first step is to start your search.

A Sales Associate will be dedicated to you and provide you a selection of properties that aligns with your search. Your Sales Associate will tour the properties with you, provide essential information related to the particulars of the neighborhoods under consideration, and advise you on the details of making an offer. Once you have selected a property, the agent will present the offer through a Letter of Intent to Purchase.

The second step begins once the offer is accepted by the seller: the preliminary sales agreement.

The notaire will prepare a contract to formalize the agreement between the parties. This is the Preliminary Sales Agreement. Once agreed upon and signed, a 10% deposit will be held into the notaire’s escrow account until closing.

The third step, the easiest and most important, the signature of the deed of sale by all parties.

The notaire generally requires 3 months to go through all the necessary steps (checking the mortgage registry, titles, right of first refusals, etc.) before preparing the final title deed. Once the deed is signed, you are now a St Barth property owner.

You will never be "lost in translation"

Since all documents related to the transaction must be generated and filed in French, Sibarth Real Estate can suggest translation services, should you so require:

for certain documents that do not need a certified translation,

for all documents requiring legal certification, such as but not limited to the preliminary sales agreement, title deed, and power of attorney.

For all communications, written or oral, with the different partners involved in the sales process (notaires, surveyors, architects, bankers, etc.) our team will be by your side, informing and explaining to avoid any uncertainties that can arise from language differences. We will never leave you “lost in translation.”
