Need To Know More About The Ghana Property Market ?

Quick Easy Guide

This short overview may be useful to you if you're looking for a simple, quick guide to developing your first home in Ghana.

Step #1 Buying The Land

You must first officially purchase a piece of land.

In Ghana, purchasing land can be a difficult procedure. There are primarily two ways to purchase land.


Land can be purchased from:



Real estate firms


Step #2 Protecting The Land

As soon as you purchase your land, you should secure it.


You can accomplish this by erecting a temporary gate and fencing the construction site.

This protects your property and lessens the likelihood that dishonest people will trespass on it.


However, walling won’t be able to protect land that was sold to you illegally.

Please be sure you have legal ownership of the land you are fencing.

We are fully licensed to handle all government processes associated with your project, which means you can fully trust us to help plan your project without any worries — this includes everything from documentation to permit approvals and more.

Step #3 Designing and Documenting the Project

Getting an architect to oversee the design and documentation of your dream home is advised.

Architects and other experts in the construction sector are fairly expensive. However, you will receive far more value than you paid for.

On the other hand, you can hire a draughtsman if you don’t care about the quality that an architect or a qualified designer can provide to your project.

You are free to decide.

Step #4 Getting The Building Permit

A building permit is necessary for the construction of every building in Ghana.

Starting a construction project without getting approval from the required district assembly or municipal authority is prohibited.


The owners who disobey this procedure will, more importantly, be charged a penalty price in addition to the standard permission amount.

We advise you to ask your architect to keep track of the granting of the building permit for your ideal project.
