Who can buy property in Guernsey?

There are no controls on who can buy or own property in Guernsey, but there are controls on who can live in the Island's Local Market housing.  If you are not a Qualified Resident or the holder of the right type of housing licence, (or an immediate family member of one of these), you will be able to buy a Local Market property but you will not be able to live in it.

If you are not able to live in a Local Market property, you will still be able to buy and live in an Open Market property, so long as it is registered in Part A of the Open Market Housing Register.
