Buying property in Sierra Leone


can a foreigner buy property in Sierra Leone?

If so, is it complicated? What is the process of purchasing a property in Sierra Leone?

Any tips for buying property, such as a check-list of items to verify ?

Thanks in advance for participating!


Hi Christine,

I was interested in purchasing property in Sierra Leone as well, have you found out any helpful resources? I'd appreciate any help on the subject.

Thank you,


As I understand it a foreigner cannot purchase property in Sierra leone, or a majority foreign owned company either. the usual option is to lease property either through a local partner, or via a company, I believe the time limits on long term leases are 40 years, but that may have altered.

Foreigners cannot buy land or property  but can lease for up to 99 years.
