Construction projects are difficult, time-consuming, and expensive if the person in charge doesn't have experience. It can be especially difficult to do so in another country where many of the needed resources are often scarce.
With no one to guide you, it's impossible for you to get started with something that can take years to complete. If you don't partner with the right people you can often find yourself living in a nightmare hellscape.

Can a foreigner purchase real estate in Ghana? The response is “Yes.” In Ghana, there are no limitations on foreigners purchasing real estate. However, it is crucial to take into account the country’s above-mentioned land categorization, as some property types cannot be privately owned.

A document that affects land must be registered, according to Ghanaian law.

The following documents must be present, depending on the type of land or property: a leasing agreement, a land title certificate, a building permission, an EPA permit, etc. Additionally, it’s crucial that you look over the land title paperwork or the assignment to see how long the lease on the property is still valid.

A permit is, first and foremost, a document that gives you the legal right to begin the construction phase of your building project.

It shows that the project has undergone a thorough evaluation by experts.

It demonstrates that the government has fully approved of the construction project. You can begin the entire construction without any obstacles thanks to this document.

I have dealt with Michael Kyei-Ayensu of Jacob West for many years now. He helped me in 2006 to acquire my first property in the United Kingdom.

I have nothing but respect and administration for the professionalism I received. Whether it be property acquisition or secure finance, Jacob West provided a first class service with impeccable results each time.

I feel very encouraged and compelled to commend Mr. Michael Kyei-Ayensu , proprietor of Jacob West Ltd without any shadow of doubt and as a matter of fact, to any prospective client who will deal with this gentleman on all matters relating to property and any other business matters.
My wife and I embarked on a venture to buy a property about 13years ago, and an instruction through a friend, initiated our first encounter with Mr. Kyei. He made what should have been a complicated task because of our situation, look very effortless.

We built our total trust in him to execute all the transactions which included solicitors, paperwork, and the lenders and with great approach and skills in his knowledge, transparency of his job, we got satisfied with what he did for us.

I will surely be prepared to do another business with him or Jacob West Ltd, as they have surely created a good name for themselves.

Michael and his team were highly professional when I used their services to purchase an investment property. His insight and knowledge was invaluable and he was able to get me a fantastic rate on the mortgage.

The service and personal attention I received from the team was exceptional and beyond what I expected! His knowledge of the local and national market albeit, commitment in finding me the best rate helped in my search for further investment properties.

He was there for me every step of the way. I’m glad I chose his services and would recommend his company to anyone if you are looking for a company that keeps you well informed throughout the process then look no further than michael and his team.

I have no hesitation in recommending the company, as they provide exceptional service throughout.
