We understand how to deliver the kind of professional service you expect from your attorney.

Buying Land or Building a Home

The buying process in CR is similar to the U.S.A, Canada, and most countries; undoubtedly there are differences to the process but we can guide you through the process step by step to make sure is done right and with your best interest and loyalty at heart. When clients are interested in acquiring property we perform all the necessary title search and due diligence to ensure the property has a clean title, free of any liens, no overlapping or boundary disputes, and is safe to transfer the ownership.

Establishing Costa Rica Residency

We offer our clients complete services to establish Legal Residency in Costa Rica. Our clients avoid government bureaucracy in CR and headaches. A careful analysis of each client’s situation is always done before recommending options before documentation is submitted with the immigration Department in Costa Rica. We counsel and guide our clients through the entire process until residency status and ID Card (Cedula de Residencia) is obtained.

Building a Hotel or Retreat Center in Costa Rica

Expats can own real property in Costa Rica unlike Mexico and other countries, and Building in Costa Rica is both exciting, tricky, and often a bit frustrating, however, it does not have to be. With the right team behind you from the area whom you can communicate with easily, we can shield you from the pitfalls many investors make. Whether it be seasonal accessibility issues, concessions, water installation issues, soil sampling issues or other, we can get you the info you need to get through the process without losing a small fortune.

Buying an Existing Business in Costa Rica

Buying an existing business in Costa Rica can often be the best and easiest way to get established fast. It can also be a way to way overpay for the real value of the business. Cooked books is a real thing to be concerned about and there are some red flags we can look for to help us to get to the bottom of the real story with the business. Sometimes cooked books are a deal breaker but most of the time it will simply change the deal into a much more favorable one for you as the buyer. The Cost of doing business under the table in Costa Rica has a lower value and with new electronic reporting requirements that is not as easy as it used to be. This makes it a great time to buy before the values sore with all the businesses now reporting real revenues, they will also have a higher value as well in the future.

Creating Your Costa Rican Corporation

The buying process in CR is similar to the U.S.A, Canada, and most countries; undoubtedly there are differences to the process but we can guide you through the process step by step to make sure is done right and with your best interest and loyalty at heart. When clients are interested in acquiring property we perform all the necessary title search and due diligence to ensure the property has a clean title, free of any liens, no overlapping or boundary disputes, and is safe to transfer the ownership.

Buying Land or Building a Home

Depending on the project and the timeline, different types of corporations may make sense. We can advise you on the appropriate course of action to save money, and taxes associated with activating your corporations officially including when it's appropriate and which type to use to protect your investment and avoid or minimize liabilities. We do not always recommend separate corporations for vehicles, however, we will never recommend to have a car registered in the same corporation than your house. a non-active holding corporation for the vehicles makes sense to shield your real estate investment from the liability of driving a car and has very low annual fees.
