Find Property and Real Estate expertise in Tonga
All land in Tonga formally belongs to the monarch and instead of land being sold it is hereditary and follows succession law. The King has the power to grant land to his nobles and every Tongan male is entitled to a tax allotment of one api, which consists of approximately 8 acres of agricultural land and an allotment to build their home. Estate owners are entitled to lease only five per cent of their land and are not permitted to sell any. Foreigners wanting to lease land may lease for up to 99 years, although this must be approved by the Cabinet. There are few estate agents. As the property market and estate agent sector is not well-developed it is a good idea to contact some law firms who can provide specialist knowledge on the country.
