Land and property law in the Gambia is based on the British legal system and property ownership is an integral part of the Gambian constitution. The official language is English and many Gambian lawyers have qualified and practiced in the UK.

Land in the Gambia is registered at the Property Registry (similar to UK Land Registry), where you can confirm immediately whether the seller owns the property free of any liens and encumbrances.

Lawyer’s fees for property conveyancing is typically 10% of the purchase price of the land. In addition to this is the payment of stamp duty and associated fees that typically total 10% of the purchase cost.
