Buying Property CautionsPost in: Posts of Belize interest, by skistrail on September 23rd, 2016
Know who you are buying from and through.
Knowledge is priceless in Belize. Anyone can attempt to sell you a piece of property. Here is a possible dialog:
You find a piece of land you like. You are looking around and a person comes over to you. You ask if he knows the owner? He say’s he owns it, but someone else is also looking at it. He say’s that if you give him a deposit, he will sell to you. He makes out a receipt, you give him a few hundred dollars deposit. He gets your information and say’s he will be back to you in a few days. Chances are you will never see him again!
Use a realtor and a real estate attorney, to make sure you are getting what you want and are paying for. Get referrals from people you trust.
