Got advice on Cr-Home.com

Recommended Posts

To all that still are reading this post, please do not let the other posts here make you loose sight of the problems we had with our transaction with this company. Remember to always insist on an "Uso de Suelo" that is CURRENT, check the Visados as they do expire and always get it in writing and stamped from the local water and electric provider that the land you are looking at has water at the site. Not having water now and hoping for it in the "near future" is a big gamble here in Costa Rica.

 

One other thing, IF you do decide to look at real estate anywhere in Costa Rica, call other realtors that claim to represent the area of your interest and get their opinions. There are "realtors" everywhere in CR, so ask around, spend time where you want to live, ASK lots of questions!

 

If you are buying in a development, ask to see all the utility hook ups on site , paperwork from the municipality or any representing office in CR that shows that there is indeed all utilities installed. Remember, if the "developer" says "they are in the process of getting them", RUN fast. In the process here in CR could be years, if ever!!

FWIW I had to get an uso del suelo to open a pharmacy in an existing building that had no suelo as it was all concrete.

 

Yes, if _whatever_ is not currently there it will never get there.

 

Caveat Emptor.
