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. There have been issues with real estate transfers in which the properties still have a mortgage or other lien, outstanding taxes or even an attempt to transfer title by a person who does not even own the property. By retaining our law services, we do all the research to ensure good and legal transfer of title.
Strata (Condominium) Titles:
The Strata Titles Registration Act, Chapter 196, Laws of Belize provides for the issuance of titles to condominiums. Under this law, a buyer who acquires a title automatically becomes a member of the Homeowner’s Corporation. However, strata titles, also known as flying freeholds, come with some technical concerns that need to carefully assessed by a legal advisor.
Escrow services who act as the custodian of the purchase monies until the transaction is completed successfully in Belize have become a standard part of real estate transactions. U.S. 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.
