The following figures are correct if you buy an apartment on the secondary market.
If you purchase an apartment at the construction stage or in the primary market, but under the so-called "cession agreement" (umowa cesji) - 1%, that is, the previous owner did not re-register the apartment as a property, then you do not pay a 2% tax.
If you buy a house, land or apartment for which you need to obtain a purchase permit, then this entails additional costs.
