Ready to invest in your own little piece of paradise? Buying property in Honduras is easy and uncomplicated as long as you follow some basic guidelines – namely, seeking out qualified, local expertise.
FORMING A CORPORATION IN HONDURAS
The Roatán real estate market has evolved in many ways over the years and it’s easier than ever for foreign buyers to invest. There are many options available to you, including registering a corporation in Honduras for potential tax savings.
By forming a corporation, wherein you designate yourself general manager and administrator, you are entitled to all the rights of a Honduran citizen regarding ownership of your property. With the assistance of a qualified lawyer, forming a corporation in Honduras can be easily accomplished at a cost of about $1,200 to $1,800.
While there are many benefits to registering a corporation, there are also potential limitations. Since it is not mandatory to form a corporation in order to buy property, we would be happy to provide you with more information regarding your options. However, we do recommend that you also consult with your tax or accounting advisor to choose the best option for you.
HIRING A LAWYER & NOTARY
To help secure land titles and protect your real estate investment in Roatán, you should engage a qualified Honduran lawyer and Notary. All documents must be written in Spanish so we recommend hiring a bilingual lawyer, if you don’t speak Spanish.
In Roatán, Notaries oversee the transfer of title during real estate transactions. Not only do they witness documents and contracts, but they are also registered attorneys, assisting with document preparation and review.
In order to hire a qualified attorney/Notary that you can trust, check with the expat business community or consult your embassy for recommendations.
Below, you’ll find answers to many other Frequently Asked Questions. Our real estate executives will be happy to answer these questions as well as any other concerns in further detail.
1. Why have people decided to buy in Roatán?
Roatán’s international airport provides direct jet-service flights that make travel to this tropical destination a breeze. US-style grocery stores make a quick shopping trip seem familiar and effortless. The laid back island lifestyle and a large number of ex-pats make Roatán feel comfortable to newcomers. Within easy reach of numerous beachfront restaurants, bars and water sports along the West Bay Beach, this prime location is the perfect spot to vacation or invest in real estate.
2. I’ve read about crime and poverty in Honduras. Should I be worried?
Located 40 miles off the coast of Honduras, Roatán is where people go to get away from the heat of the city. The island’s strong tourist economy, much like Belize, significantly reduces unemployment and related issues. Furthermore, the western tip of Roatán is the safest, most protected place on the island.
3. I am nervous about purchasing property in Roatán. Where should I begin?
The professionals at Grand Roatán Resort have owned property at this location as well as other areas of Roatán for years. They understand the concern and need for a secure title. The resort has no financial debt — 100% equity financed — so the owner has unencumbered title upon payoff. Our sales executives can help you make a purchase decision that is just right for you and your family.
4. How will my investment be protected in a foreign country?
Ownership of all residences at Grand Roatán is deeded and protected by laws governed by the country’s independent judicial system. To provide additional protection, title insurance is available through one of the world’s largest and most prestigious insurers—First American Title Insurance Company. The company has an office in Miami that specializes in providing coverage throughout the Caribbean region. The title work is accomplished by any one of a variety of attorneys that the seller selects from a list of attorneys approved by First American.
5. Why is title insurance important?
Title is a legal right to the possession of property. By purchasing title insurance just as you would in the U.S. or any other country, you have the insurance backing that you hold clear title to your property and that, should anyone dispute that title, you’ll have an advocate who will defend your claim in the local courts.
6. How will the construction quality of Grand Roatán compare to US standards?
The developers of Grand Roatán are committed to building communities that meet or exceed US engineering and construction standards for buildings at risk of enduring a Category 5 hurricane. The quality of the fit and finishes at Infinity Bay is evidence that the development team continues to be committed to meeting the highest building specifications. Please ask a sales executive for details about the construction standards at Grand Roatán.
