Being a full-service real estate company with legal affiliations and experience in Belize, we offer a comprehensive range of services:
General Property Purchases:
It’s essential for any person who wishes to acquire property in Belize to gain legal representation from a reputable Belize real estate lawyer. Some property has been known to carry a mortgage, lien, outstanding taxes, or doesn’t belong to the person selling it! Retaining a real estate attorney in Belize will avoid any of these unnecessary fates.
Strata (Condominium) Titles:
The Strata Titles Act, Chapter 196, Laws of Belize provides for the issue of titles to condominiums. Under this law, a buyer who acquires a title automatically becomes a member of the Homeowner’s Corporation. On the other hand, strata titles (i.e., flying freeholds) come with some technical concerns that need to carefully assessed by a legal advisor. If you need to register a strata plan as a land developer, our Belize real estate lawyers can also represent you in this endeavour.
Escrow services have become a standard part of real estate purchases; acting as the custodian of the purchase monies until the transaction is completed successfully. US escrow services are also available as needed.
We have extensive experience with landlord and tenant lease contracts. Due to the Landlord and Tenant Act, Chapter 189 and The Registered Land Act, Chapter 194, it’s highly recommended for both tenant and landlord to safeguard themselves with a written lease for all tenancies regardless of the length of the lease duration.
