To Whom It May Concern,
I am one of many existing home buyers from the United States who want to buy a home in Costa Rica.
I recently went on vacation and loved it so much that I wanted to buy a property. After narrowing down my search to a specific area in Costa Rica, I wanted to get a reliable Real Estate Attorney so I found GLC Abogados in San Jose, Costa Rica.
I proceeded to call one weekend and the attorney Arce called me right back and gave me his cellphone number and answered all my questions.
After I finalized the house I was going to buy, my Real Estate broker wanted me to use some attorney from Jaco Beach, whom she recommended, but after my research, I was adamant on having my own attorney who would safeguard my assets.
GLC was very helpful in finding me a home inspector who could inspect my new home and give me an estimate on how to repair any faults in the house which was a great help in negotiation my final offer price. This is something my broker never suggested and said the house was in good condition and “buy as it is”.
GLC was vert helpful and prompt in making a corporation for me and the transfer of assets coverage very easy.
The whole process was less than a month and went very smoothly from registration a corporation for me to getting a national register after title search. Attorney Diego Elizondo was excellent. He was very precise and professional throughout.
I recommend any existing party who is planning on buying a house in Costa Rica to use this firm and always your own attorney when finalizing the deal.
