Non-resident Ownership of Commercial and Industrial Property
This is the second of two reports that provide a review of policies and approaches from around the world aimed at limiting non-resident ownership of property. While the first report, Policies on Non-resident Property Ownership, focused on residential real estate, the purpose of this report is to provide a review of policies for commercial and industrial real estate. (For the purpose of this report, commercial and industrial property will be referred to as “commercial” unless otherwise noted). Information has been gathered and triangulated from a variety of sources and wherever possible validated by government agencies. The intent of the review is not to evaluate the success or eﬀectiveness of these diﬀerent approaches, but rather provide insight into the array of mechanisms and policies that have been established in other jurisdictions to address challenges that are being faced with respect to foreign investment.
