Can foreigners own residential properties in Cambodia?
Yes they can. However, the type of real estate overseas buyers can purchase is limited to co-owned buildings, which include condominiums and strata-title commercial space, as well as purchases via long-leases of up to 50 years.
To own land or a ‘freehold’ property the buyers must have at least a 51% Cambodian shareholding. Buyers of ‘freehold’ properties commonly use a range of different structures to make their purchase. CBRE’s Capital Markets Team are well placed to advise you on the available approaches.
