Investors often reap many benefits from purchasing agricultural property in Israel. However, to get the most from the transaction, whether buying or selling, it is important to follow the correct steps. When buying or selling from outside the country, representation from an experienced Israeli real estate attorney can best protect your interests.

Steps to Successful Transaction with Agricultural Properties in Israel

Buyers and sellers conducting transactions with agricultural property should follow these steps to comply with laws and protect their interests:

Research the Market

Look into the current prices, availability, and location of agricultural lands in the area you are interested in. This can be challenging to accomplish remotely, so it’s helpful to work with a representative intimately familiar with local real estate markets.

Find a Property

You can search online or work with a real estate agent to find the agricultural land you seek. Even when you find a desirable property online, it is best to have it examined by someone local.

Check for Legal and Zoning Restrictions

Agricultural lands may have specific restrictions such as land-use zoning, building regulations, and water rights. Make sure you are aware of these restrictions before making a purchase.

Hire An Experienced Israeli Lawyer

It is highly advisable to have an experienced lawyer review the contract and assist with the negotiation process. Our Founder and Israeli lawyer, Rahav D. Aharoni, has over 20 years of experience in Israeli real estate transactions, valuations, and contracts.

Due Diligence

Have a professional inspect the property to ensure no legal issues, environmental hazards, or other problems. It is also wise to research potential restrictions or other factors that could impact the property’s future use.

Negotiate and Sign the Contract

Work with the seller to agree on the price, terms, and conditions and sign a legally binding contract.

Register the Transfer of Ownership

Once the contract is signed, you must register the transfer of ownership with the appropriate authorities in Israel.

It is important to note that since factors affecting the sale of agricultural land in Israel may vary slightly depending on the region and specific circumstances, it’s always best to consult with a local professional for accurate and up-to-date information.
