Nassau, The Bahamas – GrahamThompson Partner Alistair Chisnall authored the 2021 Chambers Global Practice Guide on Real Estate in The Bahamas.
The publication, which is a comprehensive guide on the law and practice of Real Estate in The Bahamas, provides key insights on the main market trends and developments in the sector over the previous year, including the impact of COVID-19. Alistair described the fallout from the global pandemic as having had “an immediate and stifling effect on the market”. Citing some of the measures taken by the Government of The Bahamas to contain the spread of the virus, which included lockdowns, border closures, quarantine requirements for travelers and other measures, the international segment of the industry was particularly impacted. Alistair also underscored however a rebound in the closing quarter of 2020, which he says saw an “enormous uptick” due to boosts in buying in both domestic and international markets. The Guide outlines some of these developments and the underlying trends that drove them.
The Guide additionally covers a wide range of subject areas essential to the real estate practice in The Bahamas. Including:
- Sale and Purchase
- Real Estate Finance
