Annual house taxes in Crete

Postby blueskies » Sun Aug 19, 2018 10:19 pm

Please could one of kind folks give me an idea of the cost of house taxes in Greece ...say for a 2/3 bed house of around 120 sq metres and the additional tax for a pool of say 40 sq metres. I’m only looking for a rough idea. Is there just one tax or two like France which is over € 2000 p/a for this spec. Thank you.

My house is 110 sqm without a pool and the property tax, ENFIA, last year was €400. On top of that my council tax, paid through the electricity bill was about €200. It does depend where you live. The two major factors affecting both property tax and council tax are the size of the property and where it is located. Those figures are typical of a village in Crete. I would guess both would be a bit higher in the centre of cities like Chania or Heraklion. Other factors like whether it is detached or in the case of an an apartment which floor it is on or how many sides adjoin a road also have a small effect.

We are on the outskirts of a village, have just under 200sqm house and our property tax for the last couple of years has been circa 760€, with no pool.
Someday is now : )

Thank you very much for your replies. Interesting that France is nearly 4 times more expensive !

I agree, 4 times more expensive does seem high. The UK doesn't have a central government property tax at all but the local council tax, even in the cheapest area in the UK, would be more than double my combined Greek property and council tax. Also my water bill for the year in Crete is under €30 while in the UK the average is about €450.

Much cheaper for an old house in a village
