Local Market Housing

Local Market Property may be occupied by:

  • Anyone who is locally born and who has spent a certain number of years during their childhood on the island.
  • “Employment permit holders”, whose presence on the island is permitted because of the “essential” nature of their work. Such permits are limited in time and generally given to specialists in the finance sector, doctors, teachers and other professionals who cannot be recruited locally.
  • Anyone who has received an “Established Resident Certificate” issued after a person has held a long term employment permit for 8 years.
