Want to Sell Quicker?

Limited Power of Attorney Needed for All Sales! The Public Registry authorities issued an order recently to limit the access to the Registry’s information.

This means that attorneys representing buyers must receive authorization to review the title chain of the seller’s property in order to perform the title search for a sale. This is done through a limited power of attorney (LPOA) that grants authorization to review only the title chain and request certifications from the Registrar like a free of liens certificate.

Lately we have experienced huge delays in the execution of deals because of the need for the LPOAS, especially when sellers are out of country. If you want to sell, please get a LPOA NOW before we bring you a buyer.

My favorite law firm of Corrales & Associados will be happy to prepare a Nicaraguan LPOA for US$ 57.50, or a foreign LPOA for US$ 50.00.
