Who to trust: lawyer? Real Estate? to sell land in Cambodia

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Independent Property Services (IPS).

Be aware, that only the person (local) who's name is on the Property Title can legally authorise the sale of the property. If your father was legally married in Cambodia to a Cambodian Citizen at the time of purchase, and that person is the one whom the property was purchased under, then authorisation from both of them is required.....Unless the property is a Strata-Titled Condo, which foreigners can legally own 100%.

Thank for the recommendation regarding real estate agency

The review in google are good

I sent them an email and the agency’s ask me to send the documents below,is it safe to send them a copy of the land title?

*Land location in google map
*Copy of land title
*Site plan if you have

That IPS sell a shit load of property. A lot of high end condos in PP, $1 million+.

Good write-ups and pictures though, which is rare here.

If I ever find myself with a spare $1 mill’ or even $100k or even $50k I’ll look that up.

Are they a western outfit like Century21, who are the complete opposite in regards to openness?

IPS have a large expat team running the show.

Is big business here.

Khmer Real Estate came out of nowhere to dominate the market through the internet.

Again expat led.

https://www.cbre.com.kh/ is also a trustworthy company. They have a great network and seem to manage to sell properties within weeks even in remote locations of cambodia. My 2 neighbours used them and both sold within a month.
