Purchasing a home in Ecuador may seem a little daunting, but in fact it is an extremely straight-forward process when you work with HolaEcuador!
Buying in Ecuador
In Ecuador, foreigners enjoy the same rights and obligations as Ecuadorian citizens. Foreign property owners/investors may hold Ecuadorian land titles and own outright the land and/or properties purchased from abroad.
The Mirador San Jose legal council in Manta, Manabí, Ecuador, handles all the formalities of the international transaction (you may also work with a lawyer of your own choosing), including verification, funds transfers, legalization of all documentation, and registration of your land titles with the Property Registrar Office of the City of Montecristi.
You do not have to be present in Ecuador to conclude the purchase transaction. All of necessary buyer information, including a scanned copy of the purchaser’s passport, can be provided electronically. Mirador San Jose lawyers will then mandate one of our Canadian staff residing in Ecuador to complete the purchase transaction in your name and representation.
Of course, you may also choose to come to Ecuador to complete the transaction in person with the assistance of our legal staff, or under the legal council of your choice.
The time period required to complete the entire purchase transaction, including registration of your land titles, is approximately 3 to 4 months. First, a draft copy of all documentation is sent to you electronically, for your verification in your home country. Following your approval to proceed and upon payment by cheque or bank draft of the outstanding amount due, original hard copies of your land titles are sent to you by registered mail.
