A foreign investor can invest in properties in Bulgaria either directly or through a local entity. Only Bulgarian-resident individuals and entities can acquire title to land, while non-residents may acquire only buildings and limited rights (e.g., leasehold and construction rights) to land.
If a person is interested in buying or investing in land in Bulgaria, and if that person is not a Bulgarian citizen, he or she will need to establish what is known as a Bulgarian Limited Company through which land in Bulgaria can be purchased and legally owned. If you are wishing to purchase land it must be done through a limited company. This includes a house, which is obviously set on land, but not an apartment which is not. If you are not buying the land, you do not need to set up a company, you can simply register the property in your individual name/s.
