In all of Asia, Sri Lanka is unique in that foreigners can buy and hold property.
Property Law in Sri Lanka is based on a combination of the old Roman Dutch Law and English Law while company law is based on British / International commercial law.
It is important to realise that there are many potential pitfalls in buying land in Sri Lanka. Buyer Beware! We at Pearl take pride in the fact that we have had no clients discover hidden, serious problems with their deeds after buying them. We put this down to working with the best lawyers and professionals in the area.
