LEGAL ISSUES

All properties have a 100% clean title, which means that the ownership is registered and removed from any doubt. This is of great importance to potential investors in Nicaragua because historically there has been difficulty in obtaining a title that could absolutely not be disputed. Causes for such problems can be related to claims by indigenous groups who have special status in order to protect them from losing what is legally theirs, doubts surrounding confiscations during the civil war, inability to find previous owners, etc.

Currently, the system for land registration is undergoing a thorough overhaul, which will solve such problems and make investing in Nicaragua safer than it already is. In the meantime, it is still advised that you should hire a reliable and competent local attorney.
