First Residence Permit issued to non-EU National already a reality in Chania - Crete

18/12/2013

On December 9th, a nice couple from far away Beijing were the first Chinese property buyers to receive their Residence Permit in Chania, based on the new law voted back in April this year which ‘opened the door’ to non-EU Nationals to receive a residence permit provided that they obtain a property at a minimum value of €250,000.

Three months ago the particular couple purchased a nice beach-front townhouse in one of the finest developments of Leptos Estates in Chania, the Aphrodite seafront, aiming to receive a residence permit in Greece through the new law (ν.4146/2013), which the country envisioned to boost foreign investments.

The ‘first birds’ explicitly mentioned that not only wished to have an ‘access’ to Europe, since Greece is part of the Schengen treaty, but yet to enjoy a new lifestyle and live the ‘Mediterranean dream’.Today, very proudly they both say ‘‘ we’ve done it ’’ and now they enjoy their new start in beautiful Chania.

Ms Renata Daskalaki, the General Director of Leptos Estates in Greece, mentioned that the company’s legal team is currently reviewing and assisting many other clients’ of Leptos Estates to receive the Residence Permit; worth noting that the majority of those buyers come from China followed by Russians. Being a lawyer herself, Ms Daskalaki has expressed her satisfaction with the appointed local authorities that handled the procedures of the particular Residence Permit; provided that the Applicants have in place all necessary documents, then the permit can be issued within a week.

Indeed, the new law (ν.4146/2013) is the ‘door step’ of many non-EU Nationals to Europe and to the Greek property market which unquestionably can boost the economy of the country. Leptos Estates has already started the construction of a new project in Chania, the Aphrodite II, another 55 beach-front properties.
