Technical aspects of purchasing land


Recommended Posts

With some advice from the forum participants, I am now in the process of searching for a lot near Atenas. In preparation for that day when i finally fine one or more candidates, I ma writing to ask how one appraise the quality of a lot. Are there engineers that can help determine of the land is in good enough shape to build a house on? How about legal help for title search and the purchase process. How about the bargaining process?


I would appreciate any information, including names of experts I would need to recruit to help me in this process. Any information about their costs would be nice as well.

Yes there are engineers to view the land and determine if a structure can be built and if it meets the codes for building. Also laywers can do a search and help you through the entier land purchase ordeal. As far as bargaining, many people (Ticos) here do not seem to have this mind set. Usally it is a firm price, but that reallly depends on who you are dealing with.
