What you need to know about building construction on Samos Greece
Building a house in Samos
By Law any non-Greek citizen can build or buy a house in Greece. For EU citizens things are even simpler. To buy land in Samos and Greece in general you have to pay attention to a few important aspects.
•Get a certificate with a survey plan from an Engineer that the land of your choice is build-able
•That in your newly bought land a future building can be connected with the electricity, and water mains. Because we don’t live in the 1800’s, you also have to make sure that land line telephone is also available in that area.
In addition, those basic needs are somehow guaranteed if the land of your choice is within a town planning zone. Complications may occur if the land of your choice is outside the town planning zone. For construction outside town planning, Samos by law, is divided into zones. If and to what extend, you are able to build, is depending on which zone your land is. For example in zone H you are able to build 200 m2 or 2152 ft2of housing if the area of your land is 4000 m2/43055 ft2or greater.
That is why you have to be extra careful for the things above as well as that the land you want to buy does not contain segments which are considered forest areas by the forrest administration of Greece. Our office can guarantee that the land should you choose to buy, is within those specifications.
In Samos there are many planning zones called ikismoi (oikismoi), which are mostly villages or areas right next to Samos Town, Karlovasi and Pythagoreion. On a piece of land in that planning zone you are able to build up to 400 m2 or 4305 ft2 of housing which is the most common scenario. However, if the land is larger than 2000 m2 or 21527 ft2, in most cases, then you will be able to divide the land and build even more housing facilities say, up to 800 m2 or 8611 ft2. If the land of your choice is within the limits of Samos Town, Karlovasi or Pythagoreion the maximum allowed construction is considerably more.
On the other hand if the land of your choice is very small say a 100 m2 or 1076 ft2, then the maximum allowed construction depends on construction coefficient (Sidelestis Domisis) and on the land coverage coefficient (Sidelestis Kalipsis), which varies depending on the case (usually 60-70% of the total plot area). Our office is able to tell you exactly what your options are in any given case.
Furthermore, In the Ancient Samos area (Pythagoreion and Ireon of Samos), you have to be careful because most plots have to get a certificate by the archaeological Office that there are no underlying ancient antiquities present. So if you decide to buy in those places, the land has to be officially approved as non-archaeological site.
Real Estate Prices have to be also straightforward. Also, bare in mind that contract fees, tax fees and general expenses may increase total cost up to 12% of initial sale price and in most cases are covered by the buyer unless there is a different agreement between the two parties.
Last but not least you will always need an engineer. If you decide to buy land, house, or even renovate an old house you will always need a certified engineer by the Techical Chamber of Greece (TEE). Engineer Prices are set by the Technical Chamber of Greece. We charge according to the price list set by the Technical Chamer of Greece.
