Legal Services

Finding Legal Services in Colombia
There are a number of reasons to need legal services in Colombia. For foreigners, especially some aspects of the legal system will appear complex, while the attitude of officials might seem casual. Those needing quality assistance in regards to the laws in Colombia can find help through First American Reality Medellin. With nine years of experience, we can aid those needing guidance in foreign investment, just as with thousands of clients throughout the world.

The Benefit of Understanding Real Estate Laws
Laws in Colombia change and shift just as they do in any other country. Sometimes these changes are beneficial to the foreign investor. In Colombia foreign citizens have the full legal rights to invest in real estate in the country. A new law made the procedures for property procurement easier, and with fewer limitations. This does not mean, however, that those selling the property will make this process easier, or that it’s not easy for some unscrupulous person to take advantage of those who aren’t as familiar with local laws. In terms of securing a past provision that gave the Colombian government the power to confiscate foreign owned property without compensation was repealed. This doesn’t mean that if real estate laws aren’t followed that land can’t be justly confiscated. It’s important to understand fees, taxes, and adjustments in order to maintain ownership without penalties. This is the reason, having help in making sure that all laws are understood when making an investment is so critical.

Making Wise Investments
When purchasing real estate in this country the buyer and seller will need to enter into a contract, and this agreement made part of a public deed. In Colombia it is legal for a buyer to use a third party representative, but for native buyers this is often not the case. In this country property such as homes, farms, or even office buildings are often sold by those not having a license to sell real estate. This makes having someone familiar with the laws, the language, and customs of Colombia a key method of ensuring no future problems with deeds or titles to the properties.
