Legal Question

Asked on: 10/02/13, 6:26 pm

I have a question regarding real estate in the Dominican Republic. My father recently passed away and I am trying to recover a house that he built on a plot of land that he purchased. I was the closest and only heir and am residing in the United States. I have his death certificate. From what I am aware my father did not have a deed for the house as he never got one but he does have a deed for the land. What channels do I go to in order to retrieve this deed or what further documents do I need in order to do so?

This is not something that you should be doing yourself. Find a reliable lawyer in the Dominican Republic to help. I just finished with a land deal involving Aruba property. As expected, both the laws and procedure differ greatly in other countries and the advice of local counsel is invaluable.

You could use the help of a lawyer here in New Jersey, to handle the estate.

That lawyer can also help you find a reliable attorney in the Dominican Republic.
